Golden Mylk

Turmeric: that little ugly-looking root plant with so so many claimed (and scientifically proven) health benefits, used for ages as a medicinal herb in Indian culture. Thanks to curcumin, the most important medicinal compound in turmeric, this bright yellow root has both powerful antioxidant properties and anti-inflammatory effects. Moreover, it is said to lower the risk for heart disease and even prevent cancer. And Alzheimer’s disease. And aid with Arthritis. It may also help reduce depression and delay ageing… However, before you get too excited about turmeric (and curcumin in particular), there are some things that need to be considered. First of all, the amount of curcumin (which is the scientifically studied medicinal compound in turmeric as you just learned), is only about 3% in the powder or root you would normally use. So in order to expect those serious super healing powers, you should rather be taking curcumin supplements than just adding some turmeric into your curry. Also, curcumin unfortunately is rather poorly absorbed by the body, so to really benefit from the healing plant, some black pepper should be enjoyed simultaneously with it.

Nevertheless, I would say that turmeric, even though it only had around 3% of super power in it, is an ingredient that you should start using if you don’t already do. You can use it in your curries, spice your vegetables or chicken with it, cook your bulgur in it…or mix a delicious calming latte of it.

Golden Mylk

What you will need:

3dl oat milk

1tsp turmeric powder

1/3tsp cinnamon

1/3tsp cardamom

1/2tsp Manuka honey

How to do it?

Heat up the oat milk and just mix in all the ingredients with a spoon. Enjoy and add a pinch of black pepper if you’d like to help the body absorb the curcumin.

  2. Pakko yhtyä Clairen sanoihin yllä: sinun Instasi ja blogisi ovat molemmat aivan henkeäsalpaavan upeita! Itse asiassa viime viikon blogisi kuului mun aamurutiineihin kun aamusmoothieta/-pannareita syödessä luin sun blogia kauas historiaan, joten ajattelin vielä kommentoida. Uudet “lifestyle”-postaukset ovat myös tosi kivoja, ja odotan jo innolla seuraavaa! 🙂

    Hauskaa alkavaa viikkoa!

  3. I’ve always been intrigued and a little intimidated by turmeric- yellow milk just doesn’t strike the right chord at first glance. I think the health benefits might give me a little push to branch out and give it a try… this looks do-able!

    1. I totally agree – but I promise the taste is better than what it looks like! You might want to start with a smaller amount of turmeric to get used to it first but at least I love it in this recipe combined with the other spices 🙂
