Immunity Milk Recipe

Many of the foods that I cook with have added health benefits. The benefit to you is enhanced recovery, boosted immunity and extra energy. Turmeric contains the compound curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It helps fight colds and viruses and reduces inflammation in the body, making it great for those with arthritis or other inflammatory conditions. Raw honey is anti-inflammatory and antifungal, making it a potent fighter of illness as well as a soother of sore throats. Cinnamon can also help fight inflammation and infection, as well as balancing blood sugar, preventing heart disease, and possibly averting certain cancers.
- 1 thumb-sized piece of peeled sliced turmeric (or 1 tbsp of ground turmeric)
- 1 tbsp raw honey
- 1 tsp of ground ginger
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp true cinnamon
- 1 pinch of pink sea salt
- Cracked black pepper
- 1 cup of almond milk
- Place all ingredients in a pan for 10 minutes and simmer until hot.
- Turn off the heat and either blend in the pan with an immersion blender, or transfer to a heat-resistant high-speed blender and process until smooth.
