Turmeric, Milk and Honey Tea

It is Tuesday and I have already had a rough week.  Yesterday consisted of me yelling at Photoshop repeatedly because it kept crashing for no reason (seriously, VISTA would not give me a crash report), my son hit me across the face with a toy school bus (I thought he broke my nose), the Booga also stuck his foot in his diaper and got “it” all over the wall and to top it off I nuked my dinner so much that the chicken was jerky.  My saving grace on horrible day like this is my love of tea.  After the kids go to bed I curl up on the couch with a wonderful cup of tea and silence.  Dr. Oz recommends a cup of Turmeric Tea a day (it has all kinds of health benefits:  aid in preventing Alzheimer’s Disease, Acme, aids in joint and bone health, and several other benefits.)  I find with the warm milk it helps me relax at night.  My recipe is a common one – if you Google Turmeric Tea you will probably get this recipe but I like it and thought I would share a great recipe for Turmeric Tea.

Turmeric Tea – Milk & Honey

This recipe may be the most popular way to consume turmeric spice, aside from its use in culinary dishes. Turmeric tea made with milk and honey is soothing to the whole system, and recommended for sufferers of muscle aches, acne or skin problems, colds, and sore throat.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup whole, organic milk  (I don’t use organic milk)
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar to taste (I find honey works better than sugar)

Directions:

  1. Heat the milk on low heat until very warm, but don’t allow it to come to a boil, and be careful not to scald.   I add the Turmeric and do it in the microwave – it will bubble over if you are not careful.
  2. Add the turmeric powder, and mix well to combine. Transfer the tea to a clean coffee mug and add honey or sugar to taste. Drink immediately.
