Turmeric milk boosts the immunity on account of its strong antioxidant activity that fights off free radical attacks in the system.
Anti-inflammatory Turmeric milk :
250ml (1 cup) milk of choice – I use unsweetened almond milk
1 crushed green cardamom pod OR 1/8 tsp ground
small cinnamon stick, lightly bashed – optional OR 1/4 tsp ground
½ tsp ground turmeric
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp best local honey (or to taste) OR raw sugar, to taste
Heat the milk slowly with the cardamom and cinnamon stick (if using), whisking in the turmeric, pepper, honey. Heat until steaming but not boiling. Strain off the cinnamon and cardamom and enjoy immediately. May be served cold too, but this isn’t recommended by those who practise Ayurvedic medicine – it’s all about the warm spices and warm milk.
