Peace, love, & happiness in a cup, man! This cup of yumminess can be enjoyed any time of year… But, for now, we’re approaching Christmas (for real!!?), so baby, it’s cold outside and the last thing I’m wanting to pick up is an ice cold anything! Bring on the warmth!
I call this my Hippie Tea cause it brings me peace, love, and happiness! I suffer from chronic back pain, and I love to research how to use nutrition as a source of healing for my body.
Enter Tumeric! Gosh, this stuff is awesome! Tumeric is an herb that is probably best known as a main ingredient when making curry.
So…what’s it doing in a tea?! So glad you asked!
Tumeric has long been used as a very powerful anti-inflammatory in both Indian and Chinese medicine. You can get it in capsule form or as a powder. For this recipe, we’ll use the powder, which is readily available in most grocery stores and whole food markets.
This is “a little bit of this & a little bit of that” kind of recipe, but for those that need measurements, the following are approximate:
1/2 tablespoon powdered Tumeric
1/2 tablespoon raw honey or whatever honey you can get your hands on
1 tea bag of choice.. I would recommend a lighter tea. I love to use Country Peach Passion by Celestial Seasonings
1/4 c. of Coconut milk (or almond milk, soy milk, cows milk, or half & half)
Boil enough water (with your tea bag) to fill your cup 3-4 full. Put the Tumeric and the honey in your cup, then pour the tea in. This will melt your honey. Mix together. Pour in your milk. Stir. It should be slightly creamy. Enjoy! It’s so yummy!
