This is my own version of Golden Milk. The main ingredient of Golden Milk is Turmeric, which is an amazing spice for reducing inflammation. Sometimes though it can be a little chalky tasting or over powering so I LOVE to combine it with my Chai Tea ( from Findlay’s). It is a wonderful Fall/Winter drink. It gives you a little bit of a pick-me-up and satisfies my craving for something smooth and creamy mid morning or mid afternoon.
1 tsp your favourite Chai Tea Blend
1 cup of your favourite base ( I often use soy but you can use almond, cow’s milk, coconut milk)
1/8 – 1/4 tsp Turmeric
1. In a small saucepan ( on medium heat) , combine base, tea and turmeric
2. Give a little stir to combine and set the timer for 5 minutes
3. After 5 minutes, strain the tea in to a cup ( I like to heat to hot but not boiling so might take some experimenting with the stove setting)
4. If you have a handheld frother, give it a good froth and sprinkle with cinnamon ( you can also give it a good whisk)
Grab a blanket, your magazine and enjoy your tea!
