Turmeric Tea With Almond Milk


I present to you my new obsession, turmeric tea. I’ve been a long-time fan of turmeric, not only do I love what it adds to my food (stews in particular) but turmeric is really, really, really good for you due to its health benefits including anti-inflammatory properties. Also, it has been suggested that turmeric may help prevent several types of cancer. 


At first, I thought turmeric would be too overwhelming on a tea, but that is not the case at all. Mixed with almond milk, it kind of reminded me of white chocolate for some reason, even my son fell for it. I also infused other spices like cardamom, nutmeg and cinnamon for flavor which added a nice touch.
Whether it’s for its health benefits or taste, turmeric is a great addition to your diet.


Ingredients:

2 cup almond milk (or whole milk if you prefer) 
½ tsp turmeric powder or fresh turmeric 
1 cinnamon stick
4 cardamon pods
¼ tsp  grated nutmeg
honey 

Heat the almond milk in a saucepan, add the cinnamon, cardamon, nutmeg and turmeric if you are using fresh if not, add it until the end. With the heat off, cover the saucepan and let the spices infuse in the milk for 10 minutes. When ready, if using turmeric powder, add it to the milk. Sweetened with honey and serve warm.

  1. That fresh turmeric looks very interesting. Did you grate it to use it, looks almost powdery in picture? Beautiful pics!

    1. Hi! The pictures shows both powder and fresh turmeric! To use the fresh, I just roughly chopped it and added to the milk! Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Hmmm that looks so tempting. Aside from the health benefits of turmeric, I didn't know that it can be a good source of delight as well. Thanks to you.

    All the best!
