Gwinganna’s recipe for Chai Golden Milk With Tumeric.
Turmeric is the key ingredient for this delicious drink and best of all it’s full of goodness. This wonder spice contains the phytochemical curcumin, a potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant with incredible medicinal value.
Try grating fresh turmeric into stir-fries or curries, sprinkle onto your porridge, or add a teaspoon to a smoothie.
Gwinganna’s Chai Golden Milk Recipe
2tbsp ground turmeric
1tbsp ground cinnamon
1tsp ground ginger
2 cardamom pods, seeds removed, ground
pinch ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 cup filtered water
2tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight
600ml filtered water
600ml rice milk
1 cup coconut cream
honey to taste
Grind all spices together until fine with no chunks. Place spices in a pan on the stove with a little water to form a watery paste. Cook over low heat for a few minutes until fragrant and water has absorbed. The paste will thicken. Add black pepper and coconut oil, remove from heat and mix together to a paste. This paste will be the base for the drink.
Blend drained cashews and water in a blender to make a cashew milk. Place milk into a large saucepan and add rice milk and coconut cream. Add paste in small amounts until it reaches a flavour you like. Sweeten with a little honey and serve warm. Leftover paste can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
Makes approx 1 1/2 litres
NOTE: This delicious warm drink can help cleanse the liver, is full of antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. Ideal for the cooler months.
To make a smoothie, blend paste with any non-dairy milk and banana.
