Warm up with this healthy low carb golden milk recipe. Turmeric and cashew milk make a wonderful dairy-free combination!
It’s truly amazing, all the natural health benefits that are lurking in your spice cupboard. I personally know very little about these things but I am always intrigued when I read that yet another spice or herb has some beneficial, protective qualities that can aid and abet your well being. I tend to like foods that are heavy on the spices as it is, so I am sure I’ve been ingesting some good stuff without even knowing it. But it certainly doesn’t hurt to make a more concerted effort to make some of these spices a part of your daily, or at least weekly, routine.
One spice that’s been getting a lot of press lately is turmeric, and apparently with good reason. That deep golden spice is reported to have a whole host of healthy attributes, including anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant, among others. There are even some studies (well designed, peer-reviewed medical studies) that suggest that curcumin, the main active component in turmeric, can help inhibit the growth of cancer cells. How much turmeric you’d actually have to consume to reap these benefits is probably extremely high, but getting a little more into your diet certainly can’t hurt.
And one tasty way to do that is with “golden milk” or “turmeric milk”. I remember first hearing of it last winter and wanting to try it, but never quite finding the time. However, when I got a chance to try out the new Silk Cashewmilk®, it just seemed like a perfect match. The unsweetened cashew milk form Silk is deliciously creamy and comes in at 1 carb per cup, making it a shoo-in for healthy, low carb recipes. It’s wonderful in all sorts of hot drink recipes and is now my go-to for sugar-free hot chocolate. So using it to make a healthy and delicious turmeric milk was just the next obvious step.
Golden Cashew Milk really is something you need to add to your hot drink repertoire this winter. It’s a great way to warm up and feel healthy all in one go. You can also jazz it up with a little whipped cream or whipped coconut cream for a healthy indulgence.
