The Health Benefits of Turmeric Milk
Turmeric milk is not only high in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory compounds, and healthy fats (especially when using coconut oil) but is also high in manganese and iron thanks to the turmeric. Traditional recipes include peppercorns that actually enhance the absorption of curcumin (the main component found in turmeric). The ingredients in this recipe actually work in a synergistic fashion and help enhance the nutritional value of each other, which is another reason why I love this recipe.
I also love using turmeric in all kinds of dishes such as curries, One Bowl Skillet Meal, Spicy Coconut Curry with Sweet Jasmine Rice, Curry Cauliflower Soup, dressings, and sauces. I’ll even add a dash in my Stripped Green Smoothie for added health benefits. All of these recipes are incredibly delicious and embrace the flavor and health benefits of turmeric, without it being too bold or unpleasant. However, if you find the taste of turmeric too overpowering in turmeric milk, you can start out by adding more honey or maple syrup to sweeten and gradually decrease the amount over time.
