My first cup of warm milk with honey and turmeric! I was skeptical.. But it's drinkable and actually very yummy. Feeling a migraine coming on pretty strong.. Trying the turmeric remedies and they really work for me. This drink is a great wind-down before bed, too.
Use organic milk.. and the more fat the better.
Why peppercorns? The piperine in pepper works well with the curcumin in turmeric. You can read more about that here.
