Fall is in full swing! The days are getting shorter, the air is crisp, and finding a cuddle buddy feels like a necessity. There is an urgent feeling of having to be indoors and get everything done before it’s dark, which can be as early as 5p these days!
I have been enjoying this simple cup of comfort I want to share as an alternative to the age old warm milk at night. Growing up on the East Coast, I use to love having hot milk during the Fall and Winter months. I also had pretty severe eczema and later came to discover I needed to eliminate wheat and dairy completely. With so many dairy alternatives on the market these days, (including easy homemade nut milk recipes!) replicating this nourishing beverage has been easy. In addition, this simple nurturing hot beverage includes Turmeric and Ginger which are loaded with healing benefits and aid in keeping a strong immune system during cold- catching winter months.
Recipe for Golden Milk:
Time: 3-5 minutes
-1 cup Almond Milk (or your favorite dairy alternative)
-1 tbsp. Turmeric
-1 small piece crushed Ginger
-1 tbsp. Raw organic Honey
Start by bringing the Almond milk to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce to low heat and add crushed ginger. Turn off heat and let sit for a minute. Pour into your favortie mug and add Turmeric and Honey.(more/less depending on your liking). Sip and enjoy this nourishing warming beverage as you let go of your day.
