I posted this recipe on Instagram a few weeks back and it was very popular, so I’m posting here as well. We love it, it’s simple and quick to make.
I originally came across a recipe similar to this in a magazine some time ago, but this is my toddler friendly version. I’m certain the original has tea in it, but I have made it purely milk based so it’s perfect for the little ones as well. I think its delicious and turmeric has a lot of health benefits such as; powerful anti-inflammatory effects and strong antioxidant properties.
The black pepper aids in the absorption of the turmeric so don’t skip it.
Warm Turmeric Milk
- 2 cups milk (animal or plant based)
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 2 cloves
- Freshly ground black pepper - to taste
- 1 teaspoon rice malt syrup (or other sugar-free sweetener)*optional
- Add all ingredient to a large saucepan and bring to the boil (watch it or it will boil over). Lower heat and simmer for about 15 minutes to allow the milk to infuse. Strain and serve warm. Add a little extra sweetener to suit your taste.
