Spiced Up Turmeric Milk #FromOurDinnerTable

It is cold and definitely, we need something to keep us warm and in good health. So, our theme From Our Dinner Table group for this week is Drinks to Warm You Up. Turmeric milk is the one that came to my mind immediately. In addition to the numerous health benefits, it also provides comfort for the cold season. A hot cup of turmeric milk for the cold winter - I would say as matchless to anything. A drink of this at night also gives a goodnight's sleep. Whether having a cold, or I am in good health, I drank turmeric milk during most of my childhood days. Instead of having a chocolate drink, we had the option to drink plain or turmeric. I  have already posted the Turmeric Latte, which used to be my everyday drink. 

The spiced-up version of turmeric milk started as the pandemic began and lockdowns started. We started having this as some of the spices added here boost immunity and they are also added in our herbal teas and herbal remedies. The flavor of the spiced up version is lifted up by cinnamon, fennel, and star anise. The notes of star anise and its taste were very obvious and we love that. So why wait, just try this simple spiced up turmeric milk which could be done in 15 minutes.

Makes 2-4 serving

Milk - 2 cups
Turmeric - 2/3 tsp
Star anise - 1
Cinnamon - 1 -in  piece

  1. What a marvelous blend of spices. I have never tried turmeric milk, but I have heard great things about it.

  2. Love all the spices along with the tumeric in this milk!

  3. Love the health value--and the pretty yellow color too!

  4. I bet I'd like this! I've tried turmeric milk and I found I'm not a huge turmeric fan. With all the other flavors, I can imagine this would be something I'd love.
