With cold and flu season upon us, and living through a pandemic, I decided to make this week’s blog post about my new favourite home remedy! My friend Alnaar told me stories about when she was little, whenever she felt sick her wonderful mom would make her “Hurder Varo Dood” (a delicious turmeric flavoured steam milk).  She truly believes that it helped her get back on her feet much faster than she would have without it. So I decided that Powerful Healing Turmeric Steamed Milk was a MUST to be on the blog!

If you are in need of a pick me up or are looking for a healthy and yummy hot drink, you have to try this recipe.

Why 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.

Spices in Powerful Healing Turmeric Steamed Milk

Honey – Nature’s Healing Agent

Instead of sweetening the milk with sugar, I use honey and here is why.  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).  Its nature’s cough syrup.

More Healing Spices!

Add some cardamom (which is great for detoxifying your body and aids with digestion) and saffron (also a strong antioxidant) and you have a delicious, healthy, comforting warm drink to help you get through whatever it is that is bringing you down.  Trust me, its a matter of time before Starbucks picks up on this and adds Turmeric Steamed Milk to its menu!

Making Powerful Healing Turmeric Steamed Milk

How to make Powerful Healing Turmeric Steamed Milk

Not only is turmeric steamed milk healthy and tasty, but it is also very easy to make!  Add all of the ingredients (except the saffron) to the milk, bring to a boil, strain, sprinkle with saffron and serve! Quick, easy, healthy and delicious!

Can I make Powerful Healing Turmeric Steamed Milk Dairy Free?

If you’re dairy and nut free, try with Oat Milk. It’s equally delicious! If you are celiac though be careful as oats may contain gluten. I always wondered about this and why? Oats are often planted in fields where there is wheat near by. The wheat can at times get mixed into the field and when it is harvested, the oats will therefore be contaminated with wheat. So, if you have been diagnosed with Celiac disease, just make sure the oats or oat milk you buy are gluten free. I love One Degree Organic Foods Brand of gluten free oats. You can make your own oat milk at home too! I’ll put a post with instructions for that soon!

ENJOY!

I sure do hope this recipe finds you healthy and well. If you’re feeling under the weather, we wish you health and hope that this recipe brings you some relief and a speedy recovery.

    Thank you for this recipe! I love it! It is a light drink that tastes delicious. I plan to drink it before bed to help with sleep. I made this today in my Instant Pot. 4 minutes on high, then natural pressure release. I used 2 whole cardomom pods. I did not have saffron but tastes great anyway. This is a good way to get the health benefits of turmeric.
