turmeric-drink

Turmeric is a yellow-orange plant root with several health benefits, from easing inflammation to helping increase circulation to protect the heart and brain. This is one of my favorite warm drinks to have in the evening before bed, or even to replace a cup of coffee in the morning.

1 cup of Silk Soy (I like vanilla but original is good too)
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 TBL ground ginger
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Maple syrup to taste (1 TBL works for me)

Add all of the ingredients in a small saucepan over medium to high heat and whisk continuously until combined and mixture is warm to your liking. Never allow to boil. This process is just a few minutes to get to a desirable warm drinking temp. Pour into a mug and enjoy (pour over sink to avoid counter-top spills)!

I do like to top off my drink with dairy-free whipped topping. Soya Too makes a good one in a can.
