Golden Turmeric Tea

 If you're not adding a little bit of turmeric into your diet, then you're missing out on a whole ton of benefits. Turmeric is a spice commonly found in middle eastern dishes that provides a warm aroma with hints of ginger and orange. It's a powerful anti oxidant, anti inflammatory, and may have anti carcinogenic properties! One warm and very tasty way to get a little into your diet is by enjoying a nice rich cup of "golden tea"! It's perfect for the winter season and takes just a few seconds to make.

 Here's what you'll need ...

- 1/2 cup of coconut milk (full fat)
- 1/4 or 1/2 cup of water (depending on your taste)
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1-2 teaspoons of maple syrup (or stevia drops to taste)

Here's how to put it together ...

- Take all of your ingredients and mix them together in a small sauce pan
- Warm the ingredients on the stove top until they're warm
- Use a hand blender to blend it all together or pour the mixture into a blender and blend for a few seconds
- Pour the mix into your favourite mug and enjoy!
- This makes one small cup, double the recipe for a larger one
