It is an excellent way to get the turmeric’s benefits on a daily basis together with the black pepper’s antioxidant power. Consume the following drink in the mornings and you will feel ten years younger the next morning.
Here’s the recipe for this amazing drink:
It is important to mention that turmeric’s bioavailability is very low, so to be more effective, it needs to be combined with black pepper. Studies have shown that the black pepper increases the bioavailability of turmeric by 2000%.
Initially, you should prepare the turmeric paste, as follows:
Step 1: Turmeric paste
- 1/4 cup of turmeric powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of crushed pepper
- 1/2 cup of filtered water
All you need to do is place all the ingredients in a bowl, put them over medium heat and mix them constantly until you get a thick paste. It won’t take long, so do not depart from the stove. You must pay close attention and prevent it from sticking to the bowl. When done, let the mixture cool down and store it in the refrigerator.
Step 2 – Golden Milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric paste
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 tablespoon of honey
Place all of the ingredients, except the honey, in a bowl. Put them over medium heat and constantly stir until you get a homogeneous mixture. Make sure that the mixture doesn’t grass. Finally, add honey to sweeten the drink. And there you have it. The golden milk is ready for consumption!
Golden milk is flavored by black pepper, whose sharp taste comes from the alkaloid piperine, which enhances the absorption and the anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric. Consume this drink on a daily basis, and you will notice the positive results very soon.
