Easy ways to prepare turmeric golden milk
Process 1: Turmeric Paste
- 100-150ml of water filtered beforehand
- 40-50 grams of turmeric powder
First, combine the ingredients, pour them in a pot of water and give the mixture some time to boil. Cook for 7 or 8 minutes and stir it continuously until you get a homogenous paste. Pour some water if the product is too thick.
As for consumption, take one and a half teaspoon at a time. This way, if you don’t like how it tastes (you will not be the first or last who will experience this), you can get used to it more quickly. It is recommended to consume in measured quantities for 3 or 4 times each. It is especially wise to do this if you suffer from pulmonary, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, autoimmune or metabolic diseases. The recommendation applies to cancer patients as well.
If you still have not gotten used to the mixture, you can try adding it to smoothies. Or, better yet, just experiment, because there is not limit to the creative ways in which you could consume turmeric.
Process 2: Golden Milk
- 250 milliliters of milk
- 40 milliliters of unrefined almond oil
- Add some honey for a better taste
Take 200 ml of milk, boil it and mix it with almond oil. Take the mixture away from the heat and pour the milk into a small cup. Add some of the turmeric paste you have already prepared (1 teaspoon). Add some honey for a better taste and you are good to go.
As a tip, you can prepare a certain amount of turmeric paste for future use. When it’s deposited in the fridge, the turmeric paste maintains its properties for about 40 days.
It is advisable to consume the golden milk right after you wake up, on an empty stomach or even before calling it a night. Consume for 40 days, 2 times per day.
It is not recommended to individuals with gallbladder issues, as turmeric is highly diuretic in nature.
