My wonderful friend Alnaar taught me all about her families secret to keeping the those nasty bugs away during cold & flu season! Her mom always made her Turmeric Steamed Milk to support her immune system & her feeling healthy & strong! She swears that she remembers feeling better after sipping the warm, soothing drink!
So I decided to make the main ingredients of the Golden Turmeric Latte into a Healing Honey! This way it is that much easier to make a steaming cup of healing goodness anytime you need it! It also makes an absolutely lovely mason jar gift idea that you can whip up in less that 15 mins!
This Turmeric Latte is not only healing & immunity boosting, it is absolutely delicious! You’ll love it as a night cap, a replacement to your 2nd morning coffee or tea, or anytime to help keep those nasty bugs at bay!
ingredients in HEALING HONEY
4 SIMPLE, HEALTHY INGREDIENTS
- HONEY: Honey has anti-fungal, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. It is even listed by the World Health Organization as a demulcent (substance that forms a protective film in your throat to relieve irritation). It’s nature’s cough syrup.
- TURMERIC: Turmeric, the star of this recipe what gives it the Powerful Healing name, is known for its anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. Curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric) is also an antioxidant, and research is pointing toward the ability to prevent brain disease, heart disease and cancer! In fact, curcumin has the potential to ease depression and may even help antidepressants work better! You can discover more of the incredible health benefits of turmeric here.
- CARDAMOM: Cardamom is great for detoxifying your body and aids with digestion.
- SAFFRON: Saffron is also a very powerful anti-oxidant. Alnaar’s mom used it in cooking all her life & used to say “it is worth it’s weight in gold!”

- 1 Small - Medium Mason Jar 250mL jar
- Decorative Ribbon used to tie instructions to jar
- In a small saucepan, combine honey, turmeric & cardamom. Whisk on stove over low-medium heat until well combined. Do not boil.
- Once well mixed & all honey melted, remove from heat & pour into mason jar.
- Allow to cool completely & set (harden) at room temperature.
- Sprinkle with a large pinch of saffron on top of honey.
- Place lid on jar. If gifting, decorate to your liking.
- Print FREE instruction tag & add to jar with ribbon.
- Use this honey to make a lovely, warming & powerfully healing Golden Turmeric Latte. Just add 1-2 tsp of immunity boosting healing honey to 1 cup of milk of your choice. Heat over low-medium heat on a low simmer for 2-3 mins. Strain through a mesh strainer & enjoy warm!
- Eat this honey off the spoon if you're feeling under the weather this cold & flu season. It will taste a little gritty due to the spices. I prefer to drink it melted into warmed milk as a golden latte.
