There are foods and food products I like and then those I love. When I love something there is no limit. Wakaya’s ginger and turmericteas and more recently their coarse sea salt (avocados love this) and dilo cream (natural sunscreen in it) are on my love list. So I’m honored that Wakaya interviewed Carolyn and I and posted our new Double Golden Milk recipe. Check it out for our 5 favorite food trends and more.
And here’s the recipe
Wakaya Double Golden Milk
What you need (and if you don’t have all of these, it’ll be ok)
1/2 tsp. Wakaya turmeric
1/2 tsp. Wakaya ginger
1 cup water
Pinch Wakaya sea salt
Pinch black pepper (pepper increases the effectiveness of turmeric)
1 cup almond milk (homemade or brand with no carrageenan)
1 tbs coconut oil (traditional recipes call for almond oil which I didn’t have)
Few drops almond extract
Few drops Nu Stevia (optional) or Manuka honey
*Add more sea salt or stevia as needed
What to do
1. Put turmeric, ginger, pepper and water into a small saucepan, add water and simmer 8-10 minutes or until this mixture reduces and thickens.
2. Add almond milk and coconut oil (and honey if you are using). Stir until oil is incorporated. Continue until mixture is warm (a few minutes).
3. Add salt, almond extract and stevia (if using) and stir again.
4. Voila- you’re golden!
Have you tried Wakaya? Or Golden Milk? What would you say are food trends you’ve been hearing about? Maybe we’ll do a smoothie version (if it ever stops snowing) but in the meantime….
