About this recipe: Fresh turmeric root, grated ginger and almond milk create a soothing golden milk that's better for you than a cup of hot chocolate! It's not as spicy as the traditional turmeric milk known as Haldi Ka Doodh but it's still a great way to introduce more turmeric into your diet. Any milk or milk alternative will do here. Agave nectar can be used in place of honey for a vegan drink.
Pregnant or nursing women, young children or diabetics should consult their doctor before consuming turmeric.
Turmeric can stain skin, utensils, chopping boards and work surfaces.
Fantastic! This was my first time using fresh turmeric root and I picked a winner of a recipe! I can see myself making this over and over again. No changes needed. Fresh turmeric is so much better than powdered, so I highly recommend you try this, even if you don't care for the powdered form. To save time, I just strained the milk into my cup instead of getting my immersion blender out. And since this only makes one cup, I suggest you double the recipe because you will love it! I ended up topping off my cup with extra almond milk. Delicious! - 06 Nov 2016 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wonderful for sleep and inflammation. Turmeric is a traditional Ayurvedic herb. However, if you want to follow Ayurvedic principles, do not cook honey. It should only be added when the drink is warm and not hot. Otherwise it makes a sticky substance in the body called ama that gums up the works.. Hence, only 4 stars. - 02 Jan 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Must add peppercorns which are needed to augment metabolism of the turmeric! - 03 Jan 2017 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
