The Perfect Golden Turmeric Milk

Prepared with love by our friends Willow & Stephanie...

Feel free to make the recipe as simple or complex as you want re: the spices you use. You can just do turmeric and black pepper, if that's all you have on hand!

Makes 2 servings
1 1/2 teaspoons powdered turmeric
1/8 teaspoon each: nutmeg, coriander, cardamom, fennel, ginger, cinnamon, Chinese 5-spice, black pepper
Pinch each: cloves, sea salt
1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1 cup water
2 cups milk (any kind!)

In a sauce pan, over low heat, heat 1 cup water with all spices. Once mixture is steaming hot, cover and let sit for 5 minutes or longer (even overnight, if you want a very potent flavor).

After the mixture sits, whisk in milk, vanilla, honey, and coconut oil and heat to steaming hot again. Pour into two glasses and enjoy!
