I love finding things to ingest that make me feel like a superhero. It’s why I’m obsessed with superfood smoothies, bone broth and my newest love of nighttime sleepy drinks. One evening I found a recipe from David Wolfe for a warm turmeric milk and since I had all of the ingredients I made it, drank it, loved it and passed the f out almost immediately after.
Turmeric is a superfood because it is known to help with:
- Stomach pain
- Diarrhea, intestinal gas
- Liver problems
- And a many other problems caused by inflammation
Turmeric is so badass and some say it’s even more effective if drunk before bed. (That means you drink it before bed, not that you get drunk before bed haha)
Here’s the recipe for my version of this anti-inflammatory sleepy time dream drink.
Things Needed to Make the Magic:
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 inch piece of ginger
- raw honey or maple syrup to sweeten (optional)
- 1 cap full of pure organic vanilla extract (optional)
How to Make the Magic:
There are two ways. If you have a Vitamix or blender place all of the ingredients in the blender minus the sweetener and blend.
The second way is if you don’t have a blender place all of the ingredients in a small pot, slice the ginger and wisk.
For both ways bring to a boil over medium high heat. Once you see bubbles, lower the heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
Add in the sweetener, pour into a cup, drink and pass the F out.
The awesome in me sees and bows to the awesome in you,
