  • Cuisine: Indian


A tasty, healthy alternative to coffee, tea, or hot chocolate



  • 2 cups milk, (any milk, I used coconut)
  • 1 heaping tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ginger


  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan
  2. Simmer to heat and combine flavors
  3. If you’ve added some chunky spices, you may want to strain before serving


Substitute other sweeteners for honey, if desired

I would have grated a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger, rather than using dried, if I’d had some

Optional spice additions: 2-3 whole black peppercorns, 1 star anise, 2-3 cracked cardomon pods, cinnamon stick (or sprinkle with ground cinnamon)

According to Dr. Weil, be sure to add some black pepper to your drink. The pepper will help your body absorb the turmeric!
