What are the benefits of Turmeric Chamomile Moon Milk?
- Turmeric: A traditional drink in Indian culture is known as haldi doodh and it’s made with milk and turmeric and served to children and other family members as a soothing remedy for mild health complaints. Turmeric lattes became popular in the west over the last decade as we sought out the anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric. Turmeric contains curcumin, a chemical that is thought to help reduce inflammation in the body.
- Chamomile: Similarly, chamomile is often used as a home remedy in the form of a tea. Chamomile is often used in various sleepy-time tea blends and other herbal blends because of its soothing and calming properties.
- Plant milk: If you don’t do dairy, this drink is perfect for you! Use your favorite plant milk or go for cow’s milk if that’s what you’re into. Creamier is better as far as I’m concerned, so I recommend soy or oat milk for this tea latte. Choose a fortified option if you want to get some extra vitamins and minerals in your diet, or make your own homemade blend if you’re feeling adventurous!
- Maple syrup: This is one of my favorite natural sweeteners due to its flavor mainly. Maple syrup contains minerals like calcium, magnesium, and manganeses. While all sugars may react the same in the body, I like to use maple syrup as opposed to refined sugar in recipes like this.
- Black Pepper: This ingredient is essential to activate the curcumin in the turmeric. It also adds a pleasant hint of heat and depth of flavor to this sweet and creamy moon milk.
