Lots of good things going on this week – putting my warm weather free time to good use by supplementing my day with trail runs, learning new yoga poses and getting in some quality time with the kids outdoors. The dog has even been going on walks – she doesn’t know what to think about this new summer schedule!

Turmeric Honey Almond Milk Shooters help reduce inflammation!

All of this moving around has me feeling a little closer to my age! A little ache here, a little pain there – it’s really nothing to complain about since I do ask a lot from my body when it comes to athletic performance.  So, I’ve been sprinkling the spice turmeric onto my eggs, salad dressings and steaks. Releasing a warm and faintly citrusy flavor, this beautifully orange-yellow spice is prized for the anti-inflammatory benefits that come from the chemical compound curcumin. Not only does the curcumin in turmeric help reduce inflammation, thereby lessen tendonitis and muscle pain, the powerful antioxidants have been shown to regulate blood sugar and lessen the risk for certain cancers.

Honey, Turmeric and Almond Milk -- all the fixings for a healing, healthy drink.A great way to optimize these benefits is by pairing turmeric with a healthy fat – so why not make a healing and delicious drink by pairing with almond milk, a beverage robust with healthy fatty acids like Omega 3s?!  Turmeric Honey Almond Milk is so easy to prepare and is a tasty cure for what ails you – I like to have a “shot” when I return home from my runs and workouts.  Another thing my body appreciates about using almond milk is that it contains plenty of B vitamins such as iron and riboflavin, both essential components in muscle growth and healing.  And when you add local honey, you help in the fight against seasonal allergies

I drink several different types of milks, but Almond Breeze Almondmilk Original is always on my shopping list. I typically buy the cartons out of the dairy section, but you can also buy shelf-stable almond milk (typically found on the cereal aisle) and I like to keep that stocked in my pantry for my impromptu healthy indulgences!

A big mug of Turmeric Honey Almond Milk is also delicious served warm as a comforting, natural way to relieve pain.

Recipe Notes

*** Turmeric is better used by the body when paired with black pepper or fats -- so, when drinking my golden milk warm, I will often stir in a teaspoon of coconut oil.

  1. Mm this is a creative way to use almond milk! My grandma used to put turmeric (mixed with water so it’s closer to a gel/liquid) on my bug bit scars, saying that it will make them go away :). Not sure if it worked.

    • How interesting about the scar “cream” — if it worked I’d definitely say turmeric is a magic spice!

  2. I love this! My boyfriend is obsessed with turmeric for great reasons! Any thoughts on how it would be with coconut milk? We prefer and drink more of that at our place. Also, have you considered drinking it at night? See any problems with doing that? I know honey helps people sleep!

    • MAndie- – I bet it is awesome with coconut milk! I have been drinking this at night with no trouble — and sometimes “spicy” spices give me reflux late a night . . . but this is much milder and comforting, no problems

    • You need to, when I first tried it, I assumed it would be spicy because of the color, but it’s not . . . it’s related to ginger and I think much milder
