Cup of Sunshine

How could something taste so good?

Rich and smooth.
Delicious and satiating.
How I love finding new tastes that tickles my palate.

The recipe for this powerful anti-inflammatory drink was inspired
 by the recipe page of Dr. Cowan's Garden Powders (affiliate link) for turmeric powder.

Makes 1 Servings

Ingredients:
Please use organic!

  • 1/2 lemon, squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp Dr. Cowan's Garden Turmeric Powder
  • 1/4 cup full-fat coconut milk (bpa free can)
  • 1/2 tsp raw honey
  • 1 small pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 1 pinch (1/8 tsp) of fresh ground pepper
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups of warm water

Optional Toppings:

  • sprinkle of cinnamon or...
  • sprinkle of Dr. Cowan's Garden Turmeric Powder

Directions

  1. Squeeze a half a lemon into a glass or mug. Stir in ½ tsp Dr. Cowan’s Garden Turmeric Powder, ¼ cup full-fat coconut milk, pinch of salt, pinch of pepper, and ½ tsp raw honey.

  2. Add 1 or 1 ½ cups warm water to your glass or mug. You can do one of two things at this point. 1) stir the contents well by hand, or 2) pour the contents into a blender* (I use my bullet blender) and blend for 30 seconds. Once emulsified, return to your glass or mug.

  3. Sprinkle with either a pinch of cinnamon or the turmeric powder.

  4. Enjoy!

*Note: I found that blending the ingredients helps keep them from separating. If you stir by hand you will need to stir as you drink to keep the turmeric from sinking to bottom.
