We all have our go-to-remedies and one of my favourites is turmeric! This immune-boosting remedy is one of the world’s most powerful natural healers. Its active ingredient - curcumin, has been known for centuries to have extremely potent medicinal properties.
This Turmeric Chai Tea is an easy and nourishing morning beverage. The tea gently wakes you up, turmeric coats your body in protective cloak and the ritual of drinking a slowly and purposefully made drink is a perfect morning elixir bringing mindfulness to the day.
Allowing yourself to slowly drink the tea while setting your intent for the day feels amazing. Maybe you can even squeez in a little bit of yoga?
Cashew Butter Turmeric Chai
- 1 cup of hot water (let it cool a little bit before you put it into your nutribullet)
- 1 tea bag of your favourite chai tea
- 1 tbsp cashew butter
- 1/2 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Sometimes I add a couple of black peppercorns but not always
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- I don’t like it sweet but if you find it too blunt then I suggest 1/2 tsp of agave syrup or a banana
Place your chai tea in a mug with hot water and let it brew for 3-5 minutes. Add all ingredients to nutribullet and blend max 2 minutes. It will quickly turn smooth and frothy.
Enjoy with a smile.
**Version with non-dairy milk
Heat your favourite non-dairy milk (mine is almond) in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to steam. Remove from the heat, add in the teabags and cover with a lid. Let steep for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea bags and place the milk into your nutribullet with the other ingredients. Mix for 1min and voila!
