Golden Milk smoothy + short video!

on 30/06/2016

Recently, I saw a whole lot of golden milks all over the internet & blogosphere. I reinvented this recipe & added some extra ingredients to make it a nutritious filling breakfast for 2!



You can digest Curcuma more easily into your body if you add black pepper with it. Studies have shown that. What is Curcuma, I hear you say?

Curcuma is a very healthy ground powder from the inside of a Curcuma root. It has been used for more than 4000 years. It has been used in Chinese medicine & Indian medicine for a powerful anti-inflammatory. It has many positive benefits for our body. Turmeric was traditionally called “Indian saffron” because of its deep yellow-orange color and has been used throughout history as a condiment, healing remedy and textile dye. So, Curcuma is good for you. It is better to take it like that powder, raw & not cooked to digest it better & use it throughout your body well.

Be careful when using turmeric since its deep color can easily stain. To avoid a lasting stain, quickly wash any area with which it has made contact with soap and water. To prevent staining your hands, you might consider wearing kitchen gloves while handling turmeric.

If you are able to find turmeric roots in the grocery store or your organic shops, you can make your own fresh turmeric powder by boiling, drying and then grinding it into a fine consistency. ( I haven’t done that yet!)

  8. Thats a wonderful Turmeric smoothie Sophie. I love turmeric and milk and always drink it hot in the winter with a generous amount of black pepper. I have never used fresh tumeric root, I have to try that. This is so good for you and delicious.
