Golden Nut Milk

 Golden Nut Milk

300ml fresh homemade almond milk (can be substituted with cashew or any other nut milk)

2 Medjool dates, pitted (or 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup)

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

small pinch of black pepper

pinch of grated ginger – fresh is best (optional)


Notes:
Black pepper enhances the absorption of Turmeric!


To make the Golden Nut Milk:

Blend all ingredients together in your high-speed blender for about 30sec. I recommend a Vitamix to achieve a wonderfully smooth texture.


Benefits

Turmeric (Curcuma):
Is a spice that has been used in Indian traditional medicine for thousands of years for positive effects on health. It is believed to have anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, strong antioxidant, antiviral, antimicrobial and anti-ageing properties that have a healing effect on numerous health problems –  it helps reduce risks on heart disease, stimulates the immune system, treats indigestion, menstrual disorders.

Coconot Oil (extra-virgin) :
Is a superfood that has therapeutic and beauty care properties.

Its medium chain fatty acids support the immune system, the nervous system, thyroid gland, the skin and boosts energy. It has an anti-aging effect and regulates the hormone production. It boosts metabolism and helps weight loss.
