Raw Golden Milk

Golden milk is everywhere. An anti-inflammatory drink that supports immune health and digestion, this lightly flavoured raw version is just as good for you as the hot stuff.

Coconut is a superfood. Full of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals, it has the power to enhance the benefits of foods consumed along with it. It is antiviral, antibacterial and antipathogenic. Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial and antifungal as well as a rich source of antioxidants.  It has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer, tumours and cysts. Black pepper is much more than just a condiment. A powerful antioxidant with antibacterial properties, it supports skin health, respiratory function, proper digestion and increases the bioavailability of other foods.

Not only is raw golden milk a super healthy diet addition, it tastes amazing and is easy to make.

Ingredients

  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 1 heaping tsp ground ceylon cinnamon
  • 1 thumb fresh ginger
  • 1 inch fresh turmeric
  • 1 cup raw coconut chips
  • 3 cups chilled filtered water (for a creamier milk with a more intense flavour, use only 2 cups of water)

Method

Place everything in a blender and blend on full power for one minute. Strain through a nut milk bag and serve.

This will keep refrigerated for three days in an airtight container.

Enjoy alone, in smoothies, with porridge or frozen into ice lollies.
