Turmeric is packed full of antioxidants, and the star benefit of anti-inflammatory properties. The color is gorgeous. Plus, turmeric lemonade is such a crowd pleasing drink.
Creamy Golden Milk Lemonade Recipe
- 4 cups filtered water
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
- 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (one lemon)
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- Pinch of black pepper
- Pinch of sea salt
- Pinch of cinnamon
- Pinch of ground cloves
- Pinch of ground cardamon
- Combine the coconut milk, turmeric, lemon juice, black pepper, salt, maple syrup, and ginger in a small bowl. You can either add in the optional spices to add depth of flavor or simply omit.
- Add some ice to a glass pitcher. Pour in the golden milk mixture over the ice. Fill the pitcher with the filtered water. Stir. Chill and enjoy.
- If you are not used to the taste of turmeric, start out with 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric.
- Adjust the sweetener based on taste preference. Some individuals prefer a sweeter lemonade, so add more honey or maple syrup to your desired liking.
- Be sure to stir again after chilling it. The coconut milk and water tend to separate after sitting for awhile.
- Feel free to strain the fresh ginger out before serving. I prefer to leave it in because of the added benefits that ginger provides the body.
