Golden Milk



Here I am bringing you another recipe I've tried, loved and now feel like I HAVE to share with you. Turmeric milk.  It doesn't sound amazing but tastes INCREDIBLE and is so beneficial for your body making it the perfect night time drink.  Turmeric has strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-sceptic properties which is exactly why it should be all up in your diet.

It's benefits are endless, just like the Himalayan Pink Salt Water Sole I told you about last week (read here) and it's so yummy.  It helps you sleep, helps fight off common colds and respiratory illnesses, it's an anti-inflammatory, aids digestion and menstrual cramps and many other things including claiming to fight off some cancers! I can't comment on some of these apparent benefits yet but what I can say is that booooyy does it help you sleep, I fall into a deep doze to dream about lipsticks and gin and tonics the minute my head hits the pillow. There are many different versions of this all over the internet but this is how I have been making mine!

Ingredients:
2 cups of Coconut Milk 
1 teaspoon of Turmeric
1 teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon or a Cinnamon Stick 
1 teaspoon of Honey



Method (so simple!!):
Add all ingredients into a pan and whisk gently until combined, bring to the boil then allow to simmer for 20-30 minutes. Serve in a mug with a little bit of honey to taste if you wish! (If you used a cinnamon stick then drain this out of course!)

I just love getting snuggled up after a pamper session with one of my favourite TV shows and sending myself off into a peaceful sleep with a warm cup of this. So yummy and so relaxing! You need to try this! 

I've also read that Turmeric is GREAT for your skin so my next mission is to create a face mask which I will of course share with you here. 

Are you going to try this or have you tried it before?
