24 ounces of water - I prefer distilled water
1 tsp. Sea Salt - Celtic, Himalayan, Dead Sea, etc.
Lemon or Lime Juice - To taste, but I like to use my squeezer and use a whole fruit
Stevia - This is dependent on your taste. You can use the liquid drops at about 10-20 drops or another stevia product. Other sweeteners that are ok are erythritol and xylitol.
Add all ingredients to your container and shake well. You can also use a blender if you like.
DIRECTIONS & PREPARATIONS
With six potent ingredients, this powerful smoothie packs an antioxidant blend of turmeric, ginger, coconut milk and chia seeds.
Preparation & Directions
1. Combine. Combine ice, coconut milk, turmeric, coconut oil, honey and ginger in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth and icy.
2. Finish and enjoy. Pour into a glass and stir in chia seeds. Wait a few minutes before drinking to allow chia seeds to bloom slightly.
This is an outstanding tea that can be enjoyed warm or cool. I like to make more than I need and put the rest in the refrigerator for later. This is great to serve a lot of people. Experiment with other interesting ingredients like Cayenne, Clove, Cumin, Coriander, Vanilla, and Lemon Peel to add other interesting and healthy flavors to your tea.
Preparation & Directions
1. Make Your Base. Bring the water to a boil. Add Turmeric and Black Peppercorns. Stir and reduce to simmer for 10 minutes.
2. Strain. Strain your tea through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth.
3. Complete your tea! Add Honey and stir to dissolve. Squeeze in Lemon (this is really neat because it will change color due to the acids) you can use more lemon if you like. Add in Coconut Milk, stir and enjoy.
If you do not want to add Coconut Milk, add Coconut Oil and stir to dissolve. It is very important to get one of those in your tea to help the Turmeric get absorbed and work it's healing magic.
Mix up the ratio and ingredient amounts to your taste. Add other interesting flavors and experiment.
Preparations & Directions
1. Make a Paste. Use a small bowl and combine Water and Turmeric to form a paste. I like the paste thick so when it dissolves it has a very intense turmeric flavor. What you don't use keep in a sealed jar for another time.
2. Heat & Combine. Heat some Coconut Milk in a sauce pan until warm. Add in the Cinnamon, Coconut Oil, Turmeric Paste (about 1 tsp.), Ginger, and Peppercorns. Stir to combine, increase heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
3. Strain, Top & Enjoy. Strain your tea through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth to get the particles out. Top with some cinnamon or fresh grated nutmeg. Enjoy!
