In my quest to find nice recipes using anti-inflammatory ingredients to combat my rosacea and soothe my tummy, I have come across this lovely bed time treat. It uses turmeric, which has many health benefits.
‘According to the website for the U.S. National Library of Medicine, turmeric is most commonly used to treat cancer, as a blood thinner, for upset stomach relief, gall stone prevention, to lower high cholesterol, as an inflammation remedy, for liver protection, therapy for irritable bowel syndrome, to treat rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, as stomach ulcer therapy, viral infection remedy, treatment for inflammation of the eye and scabies. The National Center for Complementary & Alternative Medicine website adds that turmeric is also applied directly to the skin to treat skin conditions.

I don’t/can’t use dairy or soya milk, so my favourite is almond. I really like Almond Breeze Reduced Sugar, because it’s quite subtle but still a good creamy taste. You can use whichever milk is your favourite.
For this Golden Milk I use:
Cup of Almond Breeze Reduced Sugar
Tea Spoon of Turmeric
Cinnamon Stick or a Tea Spoon of Ground Cinnamon
A Dash of Vanilla Extract
I also like to add a vanilla pod to the pan.
You can also add coconut oil if you wish.
