A nutritionally dense warming beverage to start your morning, end your day and help heal what ails you all day long. Made with a cornucopia of good-for-you ingredients including: fresh turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, Medjool dates, almond milk, MTC oil, black pepper, lemon and Himalayan salt.
4 cups unsweetened almond milk
4 fingers of fresh turmeric, peeled
2" knob of fresh ginger, peeled
8 Medjool dates, seeded
2 T MTC oil
2 t Ceylon cinnamon
10 twists of fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 t Himalayen salt
Juice from 1 lemon
Star anise (optional garnish)
Pour almond milk into a saucepan and heat until it just begins to bubble around the edges of the pot. Do not boil.
While the milk is heating put the peeled turmeric and ginger into a blender. Process on high until ginger and turmeric are finely minced. Add dates, MTC oil, cinnamon, pepper, salt and lemon to the blender and process on high to combine.
When almond milk is hot add it to the blender and process one more time. Serve immediately with a garnish of fresh grated nutmeg and/or a star anise seed.
Store remaining golden milk covered in the fridge. Stir before pouring as some of the ingredients may settle to the bottom. You can refresh by putting back in the blender or by using a milk frother.
If you have a powerful blender you will not need to grate the turmeric and ginger first. If your blender is a light weight unit, you may get better results by grating your turmeric before adding it to the blender.
