Feeling stressed, busy beyond belief, with no time or motivation to eat properly?
Stop, take a deep breath and drink this. This blended recipe for what Chinese medicine and Ayurveda call “Golden Milk” does the trick to ease stress and it’s associated effects on digestion. I’ve tried tons of recipes floating around the internet and have adapted one that works for me.
Filling, fibrous and fantastic – whole almonds, hemp seed and coconut oil provide fibre, protein and omegas. Dates add even more fibre and some mineral-rich sweetness. Turmeric is a veritable cure all with it’s super anti-inflammatory powers. Ginger stimulates digestion, circulation and calms the nerves. Cinnamon helps balance blood sugar, curb cravings and also settles the nerves.
Now count to 10 and blend your way to zen.
- 1/3 cup raw almonds, soaked
- 1 tsp hemp hearts
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp ginger powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 3 large medjool dates
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 1/2 cups filtered water (or more if needed)
Blend on high for at least a minute. Enjoy at room temperature or steamy.
Note: if you don’t have a powerful blender like a Vitamix or Blendtec, simply use ready-made almond milk in place of blending the almonds whole. You miss out on a little fibre, but that’s cool.
