I love turmeric for its spicy taste and in this turmeric milkshake recipe it adds a refreshing zing when served in a cool glass on a hot day. Turmeric is one of those ubiquitous spices that is used in lots of dishes, especially in Asian cookery, but is rarely used on its own to flavor foods. The thing you may not already know that its also a great secret weapon against all sorts of illnesses and has been used in Indian cultures in this turmeric milkshake recipe as mother’s go to remedy for its healing properties. It’s great for healing all sorts of aches and pains and is thought to heal some serious diseases too.
It’s made from the roots of a plant that’s similar to ginger and is native to the Indian subcontinent.
Turmeric milk is an ancient recipe but still tastes just as good now. Try this modern take on the recipe with rice or almond milk instead of cow’s milk. If you prefer goat’s milk it is also a delicious and easily digestible option.
4 cups of rice milk
1/2 – 1 teaspoon of turmeric
1/2 inch of ginger
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cardamom seeds
3 teaspoons of honey
1 cup of ice
Whizz all the ingredients together in your blender with the ice going in last if you like it a bit chunkier in the glass, then pour into a glass and that’s it! We’ve added a nice little cinnamon stick to make it look super tasty. Be careful not to stain anything with the turmeric powder!
