This Is How To Make Your Afternoon Golden & Great.
Day 10. Recipe 10.
We all get the afternoon slump. Around 2:00 pm we start to feel drowsy, sleepy and just plain spent. Reaching for a cup of joe seems reasonable or downing a cookie might pick up our blood sugar but what if today we made something different.
A cup of golden milk.
It's full of spices that might give us the kick we need to keep us alert, awake and energized.
Serves 2 - 8oz cups / 20-minute cook & prep time
- 1 (13.5oz) can light coconut milk
- 4 oz water
- 2-1/2 tablespoons ground turmeric
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 3-1/2 inch chunks fresh ginger
- A dash of black pepper
- 2-3 tablespoons real maple syrup
- (optional) 2 tablespoons coconut whip cream
Step 1: In a small to medium saucepan add the coconut milk, water, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and black pepper. Wisk to combine.
Step 2: Place the pan on the stove top and turn the heat to medium. Once the liquid boils, remove from heat add the maple syrup. Let cool for 10 min.
Step 3: Divide the milk into two mugs and top with coconut whip cream and a dash of turmeric.
May your afternoon be golden and your day great.
Until tomorrow friends.
