Tasty Toasty Turmeric Chai Drink

Posted on Apr 1, 2014

Here is a little concoction I made up that I am currently in love with. No, this is not an April Fool’s joke. I’m in love with this drink. It is an awesome anti-inflammatory aid as well . . . so indulge and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. coconut oil (I like the Spectrum brand that is organic and expeller-pressed)
  • 1 tsp. non-irridated turmeric (make sure there are no anti-caking additives)
  • 1 tsp. raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • Generous dash of cinnamon

Directions

Heat coconut oil in saucepan until liquid; stir turmeric in until dissolved and blended well. Add honey and pepper, allow to simmer for a few moments as the interaction between the black pepper and turmeric greatly magnifies the potency of the turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties (said to increase by 2,000x’s!).

Slowly pour in almond milk while stirring and add cinnamon. Continue heating until the mixture is piping hot, but not boiling. Viola, you’re ready to drink this flavorful and beneficial homemade Chai!
