This deliciously creamy, warming beverage is an excellent pick-me-up, ideal if you’re feeling under the weather, need a soothing nightcap or just want something that’s supremely satisfying. Turmeric gives this intriguing drink a pretty golden hue. Watch our video on turmeric.

Method: 
Stir together coconut oil, honey, turmeric, cardamom, pepper, salt and other spices (if using) in a small saucepan. Place over medium heat and stir until coconut oil melts. Whisk in almondmilk and cook, stirring occasionally, until bubbles form around the edges of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, cover and let steep 5 minutes. Pour into 2 mugs and add more honey, if desired.

Alternatively, you can double or triple the quantities of coconut oil, honey and spices and cook them just a minute or two, then refrigerate for up to 1 month. To serve, spoon 1 tablespoon of the mixture into a mug with 1 cup milk and reheat. (The oil will solidify on the top, so spoon from the bottom to get an even mix.)
