  • I bought this ginger citrus and honey tea from Costco. It is delicious. I just add turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and cardamom. No almond milk though. Coconut oil and Himalayan pink salt. Yummy.

  • I have really bad chronic nerve pain. I wake up crying every morning because I cannot move. I used to keep a pain killer next to my bed so I can wake up take it and lay there for 20 mins then get up. I take this drink every night now and wake up with only 50% of my pain. I take no pain meds in the mornings anymore. Now I cry from being so grateful to be able to move like a (semi) normal person.

  • is it necessary to cook it with milk? or what about sprinkling a pinch of turmeric into your cold yoghurt breakfast granola cereal?

  • Thank you, very much appreciated,my friend bought me Castor oil and put tumeric and clove oil in it for the pain in my knees, I can’t believe how it took the pain away.

  • Before you post a video you should do your research how to use and combine ingredients together so you won’t give out wrong information to people

  • Very interesting! Thank you so much for the advice. We have tried three simple Italian recipes with turmeric: @
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask us in the comments, we will answer you personally!

  • Thanks Robin, This is like a great recipe taught by our older generation and always works. Really nice recipe. Inspired on this video I have created my version of turmeric milk. Here is the link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcuw1kOSSA8

  • I am absolutely going to try these:) but I’d also like to make a small addition: if you want to boost the bioavailabilty of the curcumin in the turmeric (the antiinflammatory part of the turmeric) you should add a bit of black pepper:) some studies about this are also linked here: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/boosting-the-bioavailability-of-curcumin/

  • What’s the purpose for the butter? Dr. Gupta shared this recipe on Dr. Oz a few years ago he never mentioned butter.
    My friends & I have enjoyed the mixture as a tea as well; ne or with butter!����

  • Tbs Powdered Tumeric, little Pepper, Tbs Honey, Tsp Ginger, Tbs Coconut Oil Heat, Stir & Drink. You’ll feel wonderful. Guaranteed. But also know it takes a month of doing this every day before you really begin to notice the benefits. Some people notice sooner. Depends on age!!!

  • I saw title and I seriously thought this had to taste gross. I use turmeric in my cooking but never thought of it in a drink. I was pleasantly surprised with the milk and can’t wait to try the other two recipes. Thx, your channel has quickly become my favorite.

  • I make a double or triple batch of this and refrigerate the extra with the ginger included. Then you don’t have to make from scratch every day.

  • This taste very good, I did mine with Soy Milk and it tastes great, it had a tiny bit of spice cause of the black pepper but other than that. It tastes great. Thanks

  • Hi, has anybody observed after making this drink,when i added cinnamon powder it becomes too slimy mouthfeel when drink….anybody has any solution for this?

  • We Indians gave the world the gems of superfood. But white people never regard that. We taught the world a better way to live. Be it yoga, immunity boosters, meditation etc etc. Be thankful that u all have free access to indian ayurveda and it’s secret. ����

  • Alyssa, thank you for sharing all of the health benefits of Turmeric! Your recipes look fantastic, motivating anyone and everyone to want to eat the best they can! Thank you for sharing!

  • Hello I’m from the Philippines I use turmeric all the time also. Now I want to try your recipe, is it OK to use pure coconut milk instead of almond milk?

  • no need to add any form of oil or butter. it tastes good just like that. whats the point in adding grease to your milk? butter or any oil is grease. MILK, BOIL, ADD CRUSHED CARDOMON AND A PINCH OF CINNAMON, ADD CRUSHED GINGER AND A PINCH OF TURMERIC AND A PINCH OF PEPPER.

  • Came across this video by chance. She seems very nice, so it’s not a comment on her. However, turmeric, pepper and cinnamon are all considered heat producing ingredients. Though these have medicinal values, they should be used in moderation. Too much of all these together can cause heat rash and gastric issues. Just be careful.

  • Hello Greetings from Mumbai India!
    I like your videos, very simple explanation, I do take every day termeric milk, Golden tea, I do use honey �� is it OK for dibatic, I am vegetarian 100% not even, in Indian all dishes and food, we use termeric, in addition to our everyday lunch and dinner use termeric, also night time termeric will it be any adverse effect, I mean will it be excess dose of termeric.
    Please respond and take care of yourself and your family stay home safely and fit is mantra.
    Have a great day!
    PS:You are from which country! ��

  • Great recipes and nice sound track. Who does your beats? Also, not sure if you’ve done one already but need some ideas for raw organic cacao. It’s not very sweet/tasty but really good for you.

  • This is great! I’m going to try it. Questions: (1) Can you heat it to boiling point? (2) Should honey/maple syrup be added only when it’s warm? No butter for us (on plant-based diet).

  • Elegabt ladies n guys��FASTING OK.. If only you have the islamic intentiin too whike fasting, you’ll be so rewarded n blessed here and in iternity too

  • Check out what the Book of Mormon in Alma 46:40 on page 325 says about roots and plants being beneficial to health. This scripture references the qualities of roots and plants (curcumin and other compounds). The scripture also says that the roots/plants REMOVED the CAUSE of disease.

    If modern day research is correct in that inflammation is the CAUSE of disease and that roots (turmeric/ginger) REMOVE inflammation (which is the CAUSE of disease) then this scripture in the Book of Mormon is significant.

  • Thank you, Robin, for putting this together. It’s also really good to calm you down before bedtime. I highly recommend you do this about an hour before bed as you don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night because you have to use the restroom (SMILE)!!! Awesome video!

  • i just made this drink after watching your video and it was absolutely delicious. Thank you so much. The only difference i made was replacing the butter with coconut oil because i eat vegan, and i didn’t add honey, but it was AMAZING. Thank you!!!!!!!

  • What sweeter should I use if I cant use coconut, I am allergic to coconut, it give me a rash if I use coconut soap and I drink coconut water I get a stomach ache!!

  • All good up until the Huffpo reference… Such an angry, hateful place to link when you can find so much more unbiased references to link. Huffpo is part of the Beast System..Great work other than that.

  • All of this was great info! Except for the face mask she recommended. People please listen to me, homemade face masks are NOT where it’s at. They do more harm than good. We are not professional chemists, we don’t know how some foods or supplements can affect the barrier of our skin. Plus it’s just messy and can even be more pricey if u don’t even have the ingredients on deck. Just pls pls pls stick to a good face mask made by professionals, many dermatologists also strongly suggest this!

  • Thank you! I’m an old lady at 64 but, strive to stay healthier. I will try the tumiric in a smoothie as I like making smoothies I add flaxseed banana frozen fruits and plain yogurt.

  • I started watching videos of how to use turmeric… then I saw this…
    and now I’m afraid to try!

  • I started watching videos of how to use turmeric… then I saw this…
    and now I’m afraid to try!

  • I started watching videos of how to use turmeric… then I saw this…
    and now I’m afraid to try!

  • Subscribed just now! I’ve been making moonmilk for a few years now. I adore your recipe..�� How will I know what type of turmeric is most beneficial? Some say grind my our root.. what’s the best version of turmeric for max benefits? I appreciate you and this uplifting channel.��

  • Always add a pinch of black pepper when using turmeric…it actually helps the body absorb the tumeric increasing all its benefits.. Hope you are feeling better!!

  • Thanks for this recipe Ryan! Turmeric, ginger and cinnamon is really a wining combination in cooking. Did you try to add cloves, which also have antiseptic properties?

  • great video, learned a lot. will try it. BUT it stains everything, its so annoying, how do you remove from clothing, tabletops, etc.

  • IVe never heard of you before. I was looking for recipes because I have a family member who’s diabetes is way too out of control and I wanted to give them something they could enjoy. I’ll try this out. They look great. The video for seeing you for the first time was cool. Loved how you edited the actual footage. The presentation of the dishes were amazing as well. It make me want to eat it. I’ll try the oatmeal one first since I eat that often. ��

  • I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to mine because I like cinnamon and coconut oil in oatmeal and it pairs well with turmeric. Yummy!! Thank you so much for this recipe!!

  • Another great source for antioxidants is choclate. But not the one you can normally buy in stores because the higher the cocoa content, the more antioxidants. So try to make your own choclate by using cocoa butter and some cocoa powder/protein powder in a ratio of 60% to 40%

  • Hello! Love your videos! Just subscribed! Quick question, I’ve heard this a lot…need to consume turmeric with black pepper in order to absorb it. Is this true??

  • I Love these 3 ways videos. I am missing yogurt/pudding and am hoping to find some vegan recipes that I can use for new breakfasts. Any ideas?

  • You do not really have to add the black pepper if you are adding some kind of fat, and the coconut oil will suit that purpose. Most Indians use ghee in their recipes.
    Adding black pepper will however make it taste a bit better (in my opinion)!
    Keep well and keep making these super-informative videos!

  • I have Turmeric Golden Milk when I experience the first symptoms of a cold/flu. I also eat curries and vegan chilli with chillies.

  • Hey, you neglected to include black pepper into your turmeric recipes… this is an important ingredient for the absorption of turmeric!

  • Thanks good video. I also appreciate the other commenter who noted that we need to add a dash of black pepper, which I did not know.

  • here’s several suggestions relieving pain at home
    take Glucosamine
    research some simple exercises online
    (I read these and why they work from Mackyns Nature Guard website )

  • What does it taste like? Just wondering what costs of all the different ingredients would be and where would you get them? thanks

  • I put the turmeric in my coffee and sometimes green tea for pain but I didnt know it was anti inflammatory thank you for sharing this.

  • it’s not healthy if you’re using breast milk. and coconut oil or butter, both are unhealthy. saturated fat clogging arteries. the reason it “relaxes” you, is because the saturated fat is sludge-ing the blood, slowing blood flow, hence, the body isn’t removing carbon dioxide quickly enough, leading to feeling tired. Cow Milk IS NOT HEALTHY, EVER. Nor is coconut oil. So much evidence for that now.

  • And thank you for letting me know that so you can just add a little sprinkle to anything that you eat okay thank you I didn’t know that

  • I haven’t saw your face mask honey turmeric video yet and I don’t want to lose weight I like to gain weight so I hope you don’t lose that much weight if I start two using it tumeric

  • I can I use silky coconut cream milk with coconut flakes with my oatmeal that I make please get back and let me know thank you now I’m going to finish watching the video

  • Okay I never saw coconut sugar do they have coconut sugar and the health food store but if I can’t find it can I just use coconut flakes please get back thank you

  • Hi I just thank you so much for putting the gredients in the box below I think that’s much better and that’s helps more cuz you can see the agreement is more helpful to me thank you so much I like that you put it down in the subscribe Thank you so much I can’t wait to make this and tell you how it came out

  • just subbed. I can’t wait to watch all your videos. I love quinoa so much but want to expand my recipes and dishes with it. I also want to explore using healthy but as of yet unfamiliar foods and spices like chia and turmeric and such. thanks for putting this out there!

  • I’m looking for the best way to use New Zealand Manuka Honey as I just purchased a small and rather expensive ingredient. I would like to know the best ways to make the most of this highly regarded honey. Thank you for all your help and knowledge! Be well����

  • This looks very good.:-) However, I am a little worried about the amount of cinnamon used. Cinnamon contains coumarin, which can damage your liver. The average daily intake of cinnamon should not exceed 1.4 g (appx 1/4 ts).

  • How long should I heat my Golden Milk up? Should I leave it just until it gets warm or hot or should I let it stay hot for 5 or 7 minutes?

  • does turmeric taste at all similar to ginger? ive never tasted turmeric but im not a big fan of ginger and i often see them used together.

  • I been having stomach problems and went to several hospitals for treatment and once all medicine are gone the problem is back. A lady who own a clinic told me to try traditional medicine «  turmeric + honey » and it’s amazing! My stomach is fine and I can eat normal again. Thanks Mother Nature

  • Okay I’m sold. I have Lupus and I have been looking for a more natural anti-inflammatory and I think I’ve just found it. I cannot wait for your video on Macha. I love it!

  • I love the video and the recipe ideas, and read a lot of comments suggesting black pepper to enhance absorption, however, black pepper when cooked is actually mildly toxic, so after further research, I now only use the turmeric root. Purchased this way is much more cost efficient, but must be kept cool. Kept in your crisper in your refrigerator in a rolled up brown paper bag or burlap bag. A little goes a long way #simplyquinoa

  • Awesome video as always:) just wanted to point out that turmeric stains really easily and really harshly so I wouldn’t recommend putting it in face masks lol

  • I just found your channel a little over a week ago and it has inspired my cooking tremendously. I love how you showcase the versatility of clean ingredients. I haven’t tried turmeric outside of eating eat with chicken so I’m excited to try these recipes!

  • I will start with the milk for sure! Looks great! Sorry for you and hopefully you’ll get very well soon. I had one question, what brand do you recommend for the vanilla powder? And does it make a difference if I use the liquid instead??

    I wanted to ask you this for the other recipes as well. I use the “alcohol free vanilla flavor” for now.

  • I’ve never tried turmeric before. Is it spicy like curry? Is it similar to ginger or cinnamon? Or is it a unique flavor of its own?

  • Thanks, Good video.

    My cooker is broke at the minute. I suppose I could snort the powder and crunch on the black pepper balls in the meantime.

  • Love this video! Going to try the milk tomorrow! Where do you buy vanilla powder? I have extract but am curious about the powder.:)

  • I am from India. We drink this golf milk when we have. Cough. Since I am here i am going to start. Again.i used give to. My kids when they were sick.now they do Not want.young. generation. Thank you.

  • I made some, minus the soy:)
    (I’m allergic, plus too many estrogen imitators in soy)
    Tastes great in coffee!

    I added some kelp powder too!


  • Doesn´t antiinflammatory food (like turmenic milk) affect gains after workouts? Certain amount of inflammation is crucial for muscles to grow. However, I like the taste very much a enjoy it almost daily (not with soy milk though). Good work, love your channel.

  • Telling people to avoid dairy of health risk and use soy is rather one sided to say the least. Soy has risks as well, you make it sound like it’s better in every regard. It’s not.

  • Thankful for this video! I will add turmeric to my oatmeal breakfast. I buy it in its root form, so maybe I will boil it with my oatmeal or just chop it up real fine and add it to my oatmeal or something. If you have any ideas it would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

  • Anti inflammatory effects likely inhibit muscle gain, so if you’re training for size, using something like this to improve recovery is counter-productive.

  • You only need pepper if the turmeric is EXTRACT…. Please do some home work before dispensing wrong information… I’m a clinical nutritionist, I know!

  • I make up a hot morning drink
    Hot water, turmeric, cinnamon, sprinkle of pepper, Apple cider vinegar, and a little bit of honey
    Mix and drink

  • Right on brother.
    The effect of your deliberate presenting is inspiring in itself. It’s clear you are offering these videos from a depth of levels and angles, and the value of advice that is anti-inflammatory in itself is head and shoulders above much of the internet!
    Thanks and God bless.

  • Robin
    Just wanted to let you know YT will NOT ALLOW me to ring the bell for notifications.
    Your such a badass!!
    Got the YT scared.

  • Oh wow. I actually just bought some tumeric just before I got this video! I am new, but I like your channel. The beginner workouts have been helping. I do have a question. I use goat milk because I am lactose intolerant, plus I grew up on it. Goat milk is close genetically to breast milk. You say dont use dairy, but would you know how this would affect the nutrient levels? Thanks for the vid!!!

  • Just subbed, about to check out some of your other videos. You deserve more views. Did you ever think of using smzeus. c o m?? If I was you I’d use it to help grow your channel!
