I first saw this recipe on Dr. Mark Hyman’s website, www.drhyman.com. But I revised it to make it simpler. It called for grated ginger and turmeric, which I think is unnecessary, and ground cinnamon and pepper, which can be a bit gritty. His recipe calls for almond milk, which is fine, but coconut milk is also delicious and more filling if you are looking for a snack drink. I also added vanilla extract, a pinch of sea salt, and local honey.
Anti-Inflammatory Hot Vanilla
3 cups coconut or almond milk
1 inch piece of fresh ginger, sliced
1 inch piece of fresh turmeric, peeled and sliced
1 cinnamon stick, broken
pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp. local raw honey
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp whole black peppercorns
Place ingredients into a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cook at a simmer for 10-15 minutes. strain into mugs or cups and enjoy!
