I could tell you that I am on a healthy lifestyle path and I came across the turmeric gold which is the best thing ever. This will be a lie. I came across the turmeric gold (the recipe you will find below) thanks to an on line course I've been enrolled in for the past 6 months, a course with Carrie Anne Moss, a course called Fierce Grace Collective. You can find out more about it at Annapurna Living website.
It is true that I have tried to prepare for Peter a turmeric tea (using tea bags) in the spring and he absolutely hated it. Seeing his reaction I had no desire to try it myself so I continued to drink my beloved PG tips a few times a day, even late in the evening. I know for sure that this is clearly a habit ... a habit I would like to break.
So when this month Carrie Anne showed us how to make turmeric gold ... I have decided to give it a try ... it looked really interesting, the colour is gorgeous ... strong yellow but also some shades of amber .....the whole process of making it ... magical ....
After one failed attempt (yes I was way too impatient and skipped a few steps) two days ago I did my first batch of turmeric paste and ... my first cup of turmeric gold drink ... and I really love it! And who knows .... you might also like it!
Here we go ... what you need ....
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup turmeric powder
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil
Put the hot water on the stove, add the turmeric and start stirring it patiently for about 7 to 9 minutes until you will see a thick paste formed, the consistency of a thick sour cream.Turn off the heat and stir 1/4 cup of coconut oil. Stir until everything is incorporated in the mix. Put it in a airtight container, maybe a glass jar and store it in the fridge.
- 1 cup of milk (any type ... cow milk, almond milk, oats milk, rice milk)
- 1 tsp turmeric paste
- pinch of cinnamon and 1 stick of cinnamon as well
- pinch of pepper
- 1 star anise
- 1 tsp of honey or less (it's up to you and your taste)
Put all of these ingredients in a pot, bring it to boil and ... done ... pour it in a mug, grab a book and ... enjoy!
