A delicious way to consume and digest turmeric
This recipe is excellent if you feel a cold coming on. Drink it at night before bed and wake up refreshed. The turmeric changes the property of the milk to make the milk more digestible, and the ghee and milk carry the turmeric directly to the tissues.
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 teaspoon ghee
1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of ground nutmeg, if desired
some natural sweetener, if desired, jaggery or raw sugar or maple syrup work well*
In a saucepan, on low heat, melt ghee.
Add the herbs and cook until slightly bubbly, be careful to not burn the herbs.
Add the milk and water, bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer and cook to 1/2 (until about 1 cup is left).
Add sweetener to your taste.
*Honey should not be cooked or added to very hot beverages.
