Fresh Turmeric Golden Milk Tea
This comforting "tea" kind of tastes like a spicy Chai tea (though you can put in fewer spices if you want a more mild taste). Turmeric has been shown to have many health benefits, including helping with depression, insomnia and arthritis.
We prefer using fresh turmeric instead of the ground powder, but please be aware that turmeric can stain clothes and nails easily. We found that a spoonful of sugar scrubbed into our hands can help take the stain off our skin. (Dishes seemed to be fine and rinsed off easily).
Use the finest setting on your grater to grate the turmeric and ginger. If you don't have a grater, you can do a very fine mince.
Combine the milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, honey and black pepper in a blender. Purée until combined. (This step is a MUST if you are using dairy milk. Otherwise, your tea will turn into a custard).
In a small saucepan, heat the mixture over low heat for 5 minutes, whisking frequently to prevent the milk from burning. Pour into a mug, sprinkle with more cinnamon if desired and enjoy!
