#TeaPorn: Turmeric Tea

IMG_1176

 

Happy almost weekend!  Yesterday I made my own tea and it was AMAZING!  I have been reading a lot about the health benefits of turmeric but I have been in NOO mood to cook–especially not pot of curry—-I mean it is ten thousand degrees out!   So instead I made my own turmeric tea!  This recipe is literally sooo good.  If you aren’t craving hot tea- make a big batch of it and put it in the fridge for some iced-tea!   psssst….This turmeric tea with a splash of full-fat coconut milk—amazeballlls.

So why turmeric? Here are a few of it’s benefits:

It fights inflammation and swelling…like big time, in fact turmeric in comparable to Advil

Turmeric contains the compound curcumin which is a major antioxidant

Fights depressions  (in fact, a study showed it may be as affective as Prozac)

Lowers blood cholesterol levels

Great for our skin due to it’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties
