Golden Chai Milk
Every night I always like to have something warm before bed; a cup of tea, cacao, or golden chai milk! You can find these new products at Heritage Natural Foods in Moline. I will go over a few options of these drinks I enjoy making, it’s so fun to experiment with “tonics” as I like to call them. (You can find these new products at Heritage Natural Foods in Moline.) I love the golden chai because it contains CBD. It comes in 3 forms in this powder: 10 mg, 20mg, and 40mg. CBD is a huge deal right now! Stay tuned for an article on this topic as well!
Depending on which variation you want to make, there are different health benefits! The CBD golden chai mix milk contains CBD which is knows to reduce inflammation as well as provide a calming affect! If you make your own, depending on the ingredients you use, your body will see benefits aiding in inflammation reduction as well as seeing benefits from the turmeric used!
CBD has been known to help people with inflammation and it also has a calming effect which makes it a great ingredient in this golden chai (especially before bed)! My favorite way to make this recipe is using oat milk & a scoop or two of the golden chai. I warm it up on the stove and blend it to make it frothy! Sometimes I add cacao or honey, it is an easy healthy hot chocolate recipe!
If you prefer not to buy a powder form of golden milk, you can always make your own!
Start with a pan on the stove top (the milk you choose is up to you). To make a thicker consistency you can use canned organic coconut milk. I measure the milk with the mug I’m going to use to drink it, that way I know how much to use! Then you’ll add ground turmeric powder; usually only takes a tablespoon. Next just a pinch of black pepper, a pinch of ginger powder (this can be skipped). Then I like to add Ceylon cinnamon, a tablespoon of vanilla extract, a bit of raw honey or maple syrup & then you can add a scoop of collagen to make your tonic frothy. Turmeric combined with warming spices opens the arteries so that the power of turmeric can get released into your bloodstream. Curcumin which is a compound that comes from turmeric helps with inflammation. This amazing tonic is Ayurveda which is a system of medicine with historical roots in India, using herbs for healing. I encourage you to study Ayurveda as you sip this yummy tonic. Enjoy!
