What Is Golden Milk?
Many people think golden milk is a fad that was popular a few years ago. However, that is far from the truth.
In fact, golden milk is actually a traditional Indian drink that has been consumed for thousands of years.
In its simplest form, golden milk is basically hot milk that is infused with turmeric. However, I’ve added a few other ingredients to my Paleo Golden Milk Tea recipe to take the flavor from good to delicious.
Benefits of Golden Milk
The healthy benefits attributed to golden milk are largely thanks to its main ingredient of turmeric, which is also what gives golden milk its deep yellow color.
Turmeric can help to soothe digestion. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric may help ease an irritated or inflamed digestive system.
Turmeric has been shown to ease joint pain as well as lessen the symptoms of arthritis. Furthermore, studies have shown that turmeric extract is more effective than ibuprofen for pain relief and has fewer side effects than ibuprofen as well.
1 teaspoon (4 g) of erythritol or sweetener of choice, to taste (optional)
Add the filtered water, turmeric, ginger, and peppercorns to a saucepan over medium-low heat and whisk to combine. Gently simmer for about 10 minutes, whisking occasionally, until the mixture is hot but not boiling.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the almond milk. Add tea bag to the mixture, cover, and steep for about 5 minutes.
Pour the mixture through a sieve or fine mesh strainer to remove the ginger slices, peppercorns and tea bag. Add the optional erythritol or sweetener of choice, to taste.
Pour the tea into a large mug and enjoy warm.
