Anti-Inflammatory Hot Toddy Tea

by Blair Morgan - Director, Cape South

Inflammation is the cause of many chronic illnesses. A majority of these illnesses start within the gut as an autoimmune reaction that develops into systemic inflammation.

Here is a fabulous recipe from Lee Holmes’ book ‘Heal your Gut’. This tea is your drug-free weapon of prevention, laced with creamy cashew milk and perfumed with healing spices.

 

Ingredients:

  • 250 ml (1 cup) Cashew Milk (almond milk is fine too)
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • pinch of vanilla powder (or essence)
  • pinch of freshly cracked black pepper
  • 6 drops of liquid stevia

 

Method:

  • Heat the cashew milk in a small saucepan over medium heat for 2-3 minutes or until just warmed.
  • Add the spices, ginger, vanilla & pepper, then stir to remove any lumps.
  • Remove from the heat & pour through a fine sieve to remove grated ginger.
  • Add the stevia and enjoy warm.

 

Ingredient health tip: Piperine, a key ingredient in black pepper, enhances the bio-availability of turmeric.
