Save the eggnog and hot chocolate for December, turkey day diets deserves a drink that’s going to soothe the food coma most are about to experience. Chef Steph’s specialty restorative Golden Milk is filled with health benefits and will allow you to leave plenty of room for seconds. Enjoy!
1 box of store-bought oat milk
1 tablespoon of freshly grated turmeric (use a microplane)
1 tablespoon of freshly grated ginger (use a microplane)
1 whole cinnamon stick
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp cracked black pepper
1 tsp salt
Sweetener of choice (I prefer maple syrup)
Optional: black tea bags, a shot or two of rum
Add all of the ingredients to a medium saucepan, and allow to come to a simmer. Start with a few splashes of sweetner, and keep adding more, according to your desired level of sweetness.
Whisk the mixture and cover it with a lid, allowing it to steep for at least 5 minutes.
At this point, you can add a few tea bags if you want more of a “chai” tea, or a few shots of rum, if you need a kick.
Pour into mugs, and garnish with a dusting of cinnamon.
