Thankful Thursday: Turmeric latte | Golden Milk recipe – Recipe 52

Hello everyone! Welcome to another edition of Thankful Thursday, in which I highlight a post from one of my wonderful and dedicated followers.

This post comes to us from Miriam Sodawater of the blog Recipe 52. According to her about page, this blog originates from Karachi, Pakistan. Recipe 52 is a food based blog which has dozens of wonderful  and authentic Pakistani recipes. Here is a bit about the blog, in her own words:

“Sources of recipes on blog are various like family and friend recipes. Many recipes are developed and others are improved by testing and retesting. All recipes are researched and tested before posting. “

Mariam says she has been cooking since she was 12 years old. She first learned to cook from her Grandmother. After her Grandmother died when she was 14 years old, she continued to learn from her mother. Having kept a diary for many years, she says that blogging came naturally to her. I encourage you to head over to Recipe 52 and check out one of her many, wonderful recipes.

Here is the basic recipe for Golden Milk: (you can see the benefits of turmeric by reading Miriam’s article.)

“1 cups milk (250 ml) (almond, coconut or dairy)1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, 1/2 tbs fresh turmeric, grated1/4 tsp ginger powder1/4 tsp teaspoon cinnamon powder, 1 inch stick cinnamona pinch of black pepper1 tsp sugar or any other sweetener Method:Combine all ingredient in a pot.

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
