Turmeric tea has existed through the ages in Ayurvedic medicine. The drink is made with vegetable milk and spices and has natural anti-inflammatory properties.
What gives turmeric its anti-inflammatory effects?
Turmeric has extremely anti-inflammatory properties and has been used in Asia for a very long time as a natural remedy for a variety of complaints. The World Health Organization recommends turmeric for rheumatism because the spice has a strong anti-inflammatory effect.
Cinnamon and nutmeg are also included in the blend as they also have natural anti-inflammatory properties.
It is best to use organic ingredients when possible.
350 ml vegetable milk (preferably almond, oat or coconut-rice milk)
120 ml water (still mineral water)
1 tbsp turmeric (powder)
1 teaspoon coconut oil
Freshly grated ginger
Pinch of Ceylon cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
Mix the turmeric and water in a saucepan and heat.
Peel and grate the ginger. Add the grated ginger to the slowly thickening liquid.
Add a pinch of nutmeg.
Allow the liquid to simmer until it forms a paste.
Heat the plant milk in a saucepan and stir the paste into the milk with a whisk.
Add a pinch of cinnamon and coconut oil and simmer for two minutes, stirring constantly.
Serve hot and enjoy.
Note: If the flavour is too strong, use a little less of the paste next time. You can also use more vegetable milk to thin the drink.
