This might be my new favorite drink!
I’ve seen this around but somehow haven’t tried making it until today!
I never get sick (maybe once every two years) but have felt a flu/cold coming on, so I’m trying to battle it off naturally so I knew I wanted some ginger tea. Instead I thought I would try this! It was incredibly easy, and you can check out all the benefits that the ingredients have at the bottom of this post!
It couldn’t be easier. Warm up a cup of your choice of milk (I prefer cashew milk). Add a tsp each of turmeric and cinnamon. I grated in about half inch of ginger because I didn’t want chunks, but you can slice yours in if you’d prefer! A tsp of honey (or agave to make it completely vegan) and you’re good to go! This is SUPER delicious! And check out all the health benefits!
Turmeric – Literally has dozens of health benefits! The most commonly known and largest benefits come from the curcumin, which gives it its yellow color. It’s a very strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It also boosts brain-deprived neurotrophic factor, which has been proven to improve brain function and lower the risk of brain diseases. It helps lower risk of heart disease, can help prevent and treat cancer and alzheimers, helps with arthritis and many more things! Why wouldn’t you want those benefits?
Ginger – Just like turmeric this is one of the best natural healers out there. It has proven medicinal properties, eases nausea, reduces muscle pain and soreness, highly anti-inflammatory, drastically lowers blood sugars and lowers risk of heart disease, helps with indigestion, reduces menstrual pain, lowers cholesterol, helps prevent cancers, fights infections, and helps improve brain function and lower risk of Alzheimers.
Cinnamon – Cinnamon helps with inflammation and bacteria, helps control your blood sugar, great for brain and gut health, amongst other benefits!
Honey – Honey is great for a lot of things as well, including healthy weight management, natural energy source, high in antioxidants, helps heal wounds and ulcers, helps diabetes, is a natural cough syrup, and by the way is the only food that can never expire!
Tell me who wouldn’t want all of these benefits? P.S. it also just tastes GREAT!
