Best-Ever Golden Milk
This recipe is one that I adapted from several different sources to create my favourite cold-weather drink. This thing is amazing, and gets you feeling so cozy. I often make large batches, refrigerate it, and then heat it up as needed (although it also tastes really good cold).
This nourishing drink has anti-inflammatory properties, can may be able to help alleviate the effects of dysmenorrhoea due to its warming and stimulating properties. Because it is a very warming drink, it is advised to drink it in moderation if you have been told to avoid warming foods; it is best to drink it during Cycle Days 1-4, and is also helpful during Cycle Days 15-M!
- 2 cups coconut or almond milk
- 3 tsps black tea

Bring all ingredients (with the exception of the brown sugar or maple syrup) to a low, rolling boil, and promptly turn off the stove.
