DIY: Anti-Inflammatory Turmeric-Almond Milk

BY   TRICIA HUFFMAN 

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one out there on a turmeric kick. It's just so good for you! A super high powered anti-inflammatory that does the trick to soothe my achy joints, it's also a great source of both iron and manganese, as well as vitamin B6, fiber, and potassium.
My current favorite way to get my dose of turmeric is this recipe!
Shopping tip: Look for fresh turmeric root at your local Asian market. They often have it freshest and cheapest, but it can also be found at many health food stores.
Ingredients
  • 4 cups homemade almond milk
  • 1 1/4 cup freshly juiced turmeric (will be about 2 1/2 cups of the root)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 15 drops of clear stevia
  • 3 tsp. honey
Directions
Add all ingredients to your blender.
Blend, and ta-da! Enjoy this soothing treat morning through evening.
Of course you can make it more or less sweet as you like.
Note: Turmeric stains easily, so make sure to clean up any spills quickly.
