All you’ll need to prepare this delicious beverage is cashew milk (almond milk can also be used if you prefer), turmeric, cinnamon, nutmeg, agave nectar (or maple syrup) and an optional pinch of black pepper. To make the turmeric milk, simply combine and whisk these ingredients and then heat in the microwave or on top of the stove. One serving has only 45 calories and 5 grams of sugar, making it a great alternative to highly processed treats when you’re craving something sweet (As much as we love frothy coffee shop beverages, many of them have calorie-dense, artificially flavored syrups and other ingredients we’d rather not consume).
Drinking turmeric milk, on the other hand, is actually healthy for you! There are so many health benefits of turmeric, including its high antioxidant count, potential to lower cholesterol, anti-inflammatory properties, and digestive support.
