For those of you wanting a hug in a mug but looking to ditch the caffeine (and I’d urge you to give it a go if you’re under stress – it may seem like it peps us up and keeps us going, but stress has a cumulative effect regardless of where it comes from, so it’s really just adding more stress impacting sleep and immunity) this is a recipe for YOU!
• 1 cup (250 mls) dairy-free milk ie. almond, rice or oat based
• 1 tsp fresh grated turmeric root
• 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
• Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
• Pinch cinnamon
• 1 tsp coconut oil
• 1/2 tsp honey (optional)
Method: Blitz all ingredients bar the honey in a blender before heating, then heat gently in a pan on a low-medium heat until just hot enough (but not boiling). Taste and add honey if desired. Pour into your favourite mug and enjoy.
*If you don’t have a blender, or there are still “bits” in the finished drink, simply strain through a sieve before drinking.
