The Anti-inflammatory superheroes Ginger and Turmeric are botanically related. The yellow in turmeric is so powerful it stains everything as you can see from the cutting board. It is all worth it as it fights cancer cells and reduces pain. For more information about Turmeric click here. For more information about Ginger, click here.
1 cup unsweetened hemp or coconut beverage (Try my homemade coconut beverage recipe.)
1 tsp turmeric, chopped (or 1/4 tsp dry)
1 tsp ginger chopped (or 1/4 teaspoon dry)
1 tsp raw honey
1. Add the milk and spices to small saucepan and heat gently until well infused on medium heat for 10 mins.
2. Keep the spices in if you want it strong or strain if you must. You can cut the strength with warm water or extra milk and sweeten with raw honey.
*Note: My recipe calls for fresh turmeric root (as opposed to the dried spice). The root contains natural oils which will enhance absorption and bioavailability. If you are using dried turmeric powder the recipe would need a pinch of black pepper to increase the bioavailability. Black pepper contains the active component piperine but it is also known to be inflammatory. In general, I do not recommend black pepper for most of my clients.
