This easy and pretty tasty little tea packs a super powerful health punch. When I say tasty, I mean surprisingly tasty for a potent herb and not lick your lips and pour me another glass tasty - just so were on the same page. Ha!
It takes less than 5 minutes to whip up a frothy cuppa (I've been reading World War II novels set in London and "cuppa" is my new favorite phrase for "let's have some tea"). Here are just a few reasons to drink Turmeric Tea more regularly and my favorite recipe.
- Natural liver support that can aid in detoxing. Rumor has it, the liver is the seat of anger in the body. Who doesn't want to flush that junk out?
- Promotes a healthy inflammation response in the body. Inflammation is a precursor to many if not every illness so anything that can help our body have a healthy inflammatory response will also support general health and well-being.
- Supports healthy weight and metabolism function. Yay!
- Supports healthy digestion and is soothing to the stomach and digestive tract.
You can make this tea with just 4 cups of water and a teaspoon of powdered organic turmeric. Simmer for about 10 minutes (do not boil), strain and add a teaspoon of honey to taste. This recipe is healthy and takes minimal effort and ingredients, but in my opinion, not very tasty. Here's how I like to make my turmeric tea.
1 can of organic full fat coconut milk (or 3 cups of homemade coconut milk if you like to make your own.) 1 teaspoon of organic turmeric powder 1 teaspoon of organic cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon of organic ginger powder sprinkle of black pepper to help with absorption
Place all the ingredients in a blender and whip together until well blended and smooth. You can also whip them in the pan with a whisk but the blender makes it smoother and more frothy. Pour into a small sauce pan and simmer for about 5 minutes until warm, but not boiling. Drink immediately.
