Ging-Tur- Winter’s Anti-Inflammatory Herbal Drink


Who haven’t heard of Turmeric?  Nothing is as satisfying as when you get access to the fresh roots of your favorite herbs ginger and turmeric. It’s  a blessing if you get this soon after hurting yourself. Yes!!!  snow diving and spraining arm in the black ice (snow).

I am not a pain-killer fan so made this amazing fresh yellow drink to relieve swelling and pain. This not only tastes fantastic but also supports our overall health. I love my Natural Tylenol

Scientists proved  that curcumin is present in turmeric which is anti-inflammatory,  and can reduce soreness and fever, much like the pain killers. Ginger also helps reduce chronic pain, by lowering our levels of hormones that induce inflammation. This is a natural energy boost.

Health benefits of turmeric

  • 1-2 inch pieces of fresh turmeric (you can use the turmeric powder if fresh root is not available)
  • 1-2 inch pieces of fresh ginger
  • Sweetener of choice( Manuka honey, maple syrup (Optional, I don’t use any sweetener)
  • Milk of choice, I use coconut (on vegan day) or cow milk (normal days)
  • Black pepper, cloves, cinnamon (Optional) or any other spices you’d like!
  1. In a mortar and pestle crush ginger and turmeric nicely so that all juices are released.
  2. In a pan take 2 cups of milk and add all ingredients- crushed paste of ginger and turmeric, cloves (except sweetener, if using) and whisk to combine.
  3. Heat over medium heat until it starts to bubble.
  4. Then turn heat down to low and simmer for about 5 minutes so the flavors ooze out nicely from the herbs.
  5. Strain out the herbs and spices and pour in the mugs.
  6. Add sweetener and stir
  7. I made  2 servings and shared with my love!

Life is better with this Golden Spice of Life.
