All I ask for at night when I close my eyes for bed is to have a peaceful, painless sleep. What do I get instead? A 3 year old and 7 year old sneaking in the bed with my hubby and me. King size bed yes, but for 4 people, NO! Well last night they got me good!! Not sure if it was too many pillows, the tiny foot I found on my neck around 3 a.m., or me partially hanging off the bed due to that tiny (but obviously powerful) foot on my neck . Whatever the cause, I woke up with my neck in pain😣!
Enter: Vitamix stage left!
Easily one of my most prized possessions, I decided to test my Vitamix out to make my natural pain reliving, anti-inflammatory ‘Golden Milk Tea’. And the star ingredient, yep you guessed it, Turmeric!! This earthy, creamy, sweet soothing concoction is perfect right before bed to help sip the pain away.
Golden Milk Tea
– 1 cup vanilla almond milk
– 2 tbsp organic/ local honey
– 4 -1″ size fresh turmeric root OR 1 tbsp ground turmeric
– 1 knob fresh ginger OR 1 teaspoon ground ginger
– 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Blend well on variable 10 for your Vitamix for approximate 5 minutes until warm and golden-smooth.
*No Vitamix? No problem. Blend mixture on high in a regular blender and heat to your desired temperature on the stove in a sauce pan or pop in the microwave.
