A traditional ayurvedic drink to support the immune system, help with inflammation such as arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis...
1/4 cup Turmeric
Almond oil or ghee
Milk from cow, almond or coconut
Honey or mapple syrup
Make a turmeric base:
Combine the turmeric with 1/2 cup water in a saucepan.
Bring to a boil, stir as you lower the heat and simmer until the mixture turns into a thick paste. Cool and scoop into a glass jar and store in the fridge if needed .
To make one serving, combine 1/2 to 1 tsp turmeric paste, 1 tsp almond oil or ghee to one cup of warm milk. Add honey or apple syrup if desired.
For Kapha unbalances this a little heavy so to make it lighter use goat milk or almond milk, add cinnamon and a pinch of black pepper and/or cayenne and/or ginger powder. only a little bit of honey should be used and I would commit the ghee.
For Pitta unbalances coconut milk is recommended.
This is a good way to take herbs such as ashwaganda and astragalus.
Feel free to be creative.....
