I have made up my own turmeric milk after a discussion with and friend from India and added cardamom and ginger off the top of my head but no black pepper. Something fun, funky and fresh for everyone. He has always been a bad egg. Thank you do much for the inspiration. Can I discount nutjobs like you who deny physiology and evolutionary fact?

We use it for all. A nice post to remember our heritage. My mom would give me turmeric milk to smoothen the voice texture singers drink it often. For the record, I don't sing: I drink it almost every winter night even when I am well: I want that stock farm bottle..
Tanvi, don't put ideas in my head or else I have to ask you to courier props to me from Delhi! So glad to see your comment. I love turmeric and use way too much in curries. I'm am definitely trying this milk. I swear by an avocado, pear, garlic and ginger smoothie - but this is my new cure-it-all drink. I turn red and super-itchy! I've never tried turmeric milk as a home remedy Simply flavorful and colorful milk.
I experimented with turmeric-pumpkin milk this fall but haven't used this combination of spices. Can't wait to try it! At the same time, i miss the cook in me who used to experiment with flavors and colours for the husband: Thanks for the tip Annie!
I have not found the need to store turmeric honestly but I think it would be a great thing to keep handy all through out winter. Well it looks like I came across this post at the perfect time. I may have to give this a shot I came across here from your pinterest. Turmeric is a great remedy and is able to keep our food to have a longer shelf life without any preservation. But turmeric milk is new to me. Thank you for introducing this to me.
Lovely pics as always! I always like the flavor of this hot drink. I always wondered if this remedy only worked for South Asians especially Indians. Any non-South Asians tried this remedy and did it work for you.
The contents are really good… mumbaiflowerplaza. Hi Kulsum, I'm going to try this! I usually have a traditional turmeric, honey and tamarind drink which has been used for generations for internal cleansing. Adore the fantastic photos on your blog: I am all in.
I remember as a child getting borstrel sp and honey for a cough, and I am pretty sure it had turmeric. It was thick, black gooey but certainly tastes similar.
The japanese drink cold turmeric tea for a healthy lifestyle. I am going away on vacation and I have my periods the same week Hi, This is not a medicine and I'm no medical expert.
It is a simple home remedy that cures many of the basic day to day ailments but nothing more than that. Or at least that's all I know. I just made this. I didn't have cardamom but it tasted delightful with honey. I am feeling a tad better already. Just a hint, don't heat in a microwave blows up!
Hopefully both my congestion and cramps stay away for awhile! Kulsum, I have laryngitis and have no voice. My other half has just flown in from a long business trip from warmer pastures and is in danger of catching a cold. I made this tonight sweetened with honey.
I had to put powdered ginger as I didn't have fresh. We both loved it. But I sympathise with you about the raw milk. I grew up in Pakistan and my grandmother would warm it and tell me age had strained it but it was so not true as the skin would catch and make me gag.
The things we were put through as sub continental children!! Turmeric paste has actually cured my friends dog of cancer. She rubbed it on to the cancer and gave it to her dog in her food and golden milk to drink. Within 6 weeks the cancer has disappeared. I'm from the south part of India Chennai and this recipe is way too complicated. With the convenience of a microwave, these days I simply warm things up for about a minute and you're good to go.
The sweetness of natural milk masks any bitterness from the turmeric. I won't call adding few extra spices which take seconds easily available specially in an Indian household complicated: But each to its own! I discovered this amazing drink when staying with some friends in Mauritius. Not only does it keep your imune system and digestion in check, but it sure helps you sleep too. Thank you for sharing your recipe and pictures. Sounds delicious, looks delicious, tastes delicious!
I tried your recipe out of my love of turmeric and non-caffeinated warm drinks. I noticed some confusion in the comments here about what turmeric does. While there is preliminary research on turmeric and curcumin, they are unproven treatments. I'm particularly concerned by the poster who is promoting turmeric as a complementary cancer treatment.
Please see the site "What's the Harm? I don't do sugars or dairy, so I made this with almond milk, a pinch of cinnamon and stevia to sweeten and it's actually very tasty. Whether it fixes my sore throat only time will tell Thank you for the recipe!
I made this on Friday night and added some honey. Do you get the same benefits mixing cold milk and tumeric powder rather than heating the milk and tumeric. Well since it is a cold remedy I don't see it as something I would have cold.
No you will not get the benefits without heating the milk and mixing turmeric. An Indian friend told me about tumeric and milk today at the office. I had what I thought was the flu and was just about over it, but still had sort of a lingering cough.
I made the tumeric and warm milk, drank it and it worked within a short period of time!!! I have not coughed since and I could tell that the source of the cough was eradicated!!! Can I ask how many times a day should I make this if symptoms are still lingering?
Hi Kulsum, I am new to your site, however, I find it very interesting and informative. Voice care product for vocal professionals. Hello Kulsum I am also new here. Can I use it fresh? Thanks for the info. This brought back memories It was compulsory to drink haladi-doodh twice a day everyday when I would have cold, cough or fever. I would hate the taste, still do but I know gargles in the morning and haladi-doodh are the best remedies.. I also remember those days when if you get a cut or a scratch while playing, first thing to do would be put turmeric powder on the wound..
We also make pickles with fresh turmeric roots, garlic cloves, chopped carrot and many other things! Your recipe is mild compared to what I grew up with. You can imagine how bitter that was. And to top it off my mom would make us swirl the cup when we nearing the bottom so that any settled powder would not be wasted.
I love Ayurvedic remedies! I will look forward to this a mid-day break! Thank you for sharing and beautiful photos. This comment has been removed by the author. I am a 52 year old Caucasian Canadian woman who is venturing out of her comfort zone and I am right now, at this very minute, enjoying a warm cup of this milk after making it using your recipe!
I made mine with unsweetened almond milk, ground turmeric, ground cardamom, ground ginger and pepper with a bit of honey. Your blog is absolutely beautiful and a learning experience for me. I hope to visit it often. Almond milk is probably better because dairy produce cause more mucus when your sick. I have been using turmeric powder in milk without boiling it.
Is it fine or do I have to boil it to gain benefit from it? If I was to use ground cardamom, how much would i need? Just a pinch per serving. Cardamom can be overwhelming otherwise. Hi, does anyone have an alternative for this remedy without anything milk or milky like? Hello Kulsum can I use this foe 3 month old baby in their formula milk or is there anything u recommend. Good post Im goin downstairs to make a milk now because i cant sleep due a cold and jus found this. I remember my mom giving us this even when we fell down as turmeric helps with healing.
Hated it at the time: She would also make an omelet with salt, pepper and added turmeric just so we would eat it. I've never used it but your post just made me try some.
I'm so happy to see this It's my first time seeing this off of pinterest, my? Hi Sharonda, I'm no expert but I see no reason why you can't! I have just read your post by happenstance.
I have made up my own turmeric milk after a discussion with and friend from India and added cardamom and ginger off the top of my head but no black pepper. I shall enjoy making this more often as I have hopes it will ease some joint pain as well.
My husband was having lot of cough this early start of winter. I started giving him haldi milk since a few days and he's so much better now I also started to have it, have to start next with the kids I read thru the posts quickly, but didn't see anything where anyone asked about the milk.
Do you have to use fresh whole milk? When I think of that I think of the milk you get as soon as you milk a cow or goat. Can it be the milk you purchase in the grocery store. I live in an area that does not let people drink raw milk, they are worried people will get sick!
I think most of us get sick eating all the stuff that is processed! Thank so much -. I love turmeric, always add it to veggies, soups, etc. But now, I'll also drink it, both with milk I use soy or almond milk or in tea. What a powerful drink! Thank you for this easy, healthful recipe. Just repinned on Pinterest, that's how I found it. I've used a similar turmeric milk recipe for years for aches and pains.
I call it Golden Milk, and it is a simplified version where I make a decoction of the powdered herb by boiling a couple tsp in a cup of water until it reduces to half, then add honey and milk. I find it works great for joint inflammations especially when combined with a turmeric compress powdered turmeric sandwiched in a cloth soaked in hot water over the affected area. This method targets the inflammation from the inside and out! Need bubble waffle and bubble tea in your area?
Always happy to join in London family and contact us! The service was fairly quick, from the time of ordering to the time of receiving the drinks was fast!!!! I would definitely recommend this especially if you are a milk tea lover.
And adding the bubble in it was definitely an enhancer to the drink. My personal favourite is the Matcha milk tea and regular milk tea. Always add bubbles of course! The bubbles are the right mix of chewy and soft. Also, I love the popping bubbles.
Special thanks to Monica and Sanji for patiently introducing each beverage, great job! After tasting the bubble tea, my deepest emotions are aroused because their tea helps me to recall the feeling when I drank "the same" bubble tea in Taiwan. Shoreditch High street station.

In private homes or parties, non-alcoholic eggnog may be served to guests, but with one or more bottles of spirits rum, whiskey, etc. This way designated drivers and people who do not drink alcohol can enjoy the drink alcohol-free, but other guests can add the type and amount of alcohol to suit their tastes.
When eggnog is served in a punchbowl, in some cases a "virgin" recipe alcohol free and an alcohol-spiked recipe will be served in two separate bowls, labelled so that guests can choose which one. The distinctive spices that give eggnog its characteristic taste, including cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla, are used to create eggnog-flavoured foods and beverages.
Eggnog-flavoured foods include eggnog ice cream, pie, cupcakes, rum cake, cookies, biscotti, pancake syrup, bread pudding, French toast and waffles. Eggnog-flavoured beverages include eggnog lattes developed by Starbucks in the mids , eggnog-flavoured coffee and tea, some craft beers e. Most homemade eggnog recipes have historically included raw eggs.
While the alcohol added to many homemade eggnogs is a bactericide , eggnog freshly made from raw eggs that are infected with salmonella and not heated can cause food poisoning.
A very small percentage of raw eggs are infected with salmonella. In most of the residents and staff of a nursing home in the U. The cause was almost certainly an eggnog made on the spur of the moment, with some cases caused in a secondary outbreak caused by food being handled later by people with contaminated hands.
Food and Drug Administration FDA stated that the alcohol in eggnog is not sufficient to sterilize contaminated eggs. However, aged alcoholic eggnog becomes sterilized even if made with contaminated eggs.
Aging alcoholic eggnog—sometimes for as long as a year—has been said to improve its flavor significantly, and also destroys pathogens.
The Rockefeller University Laboratory of Bacterial Pathogenesis and Immunology carried out an experiment in where salmonella was added to a strong eggnog which was refrigerated and stored; the beverage still had dangerous levels of salmonella a week later, but it was all gone within three weeks.
For concerns about the safety of selling products made from raw eggs and milk, the U. FDA has changed or altered the definition of eggnog a number of times towards artificial replacements for the large number of eggs traditionally used. TIME magazine states that individuals should be aware of the alcohol content of eggnog, from a responsible drinking perspective.
When people make homemade alcoholic eggnog, or when they add spirits to commercially prepared eggnog, in some cases, the drink has a very high alcohol content; one columnist states that in his family Christmas tradition, "it's not eggnog unless you can set fire to it", due to high alcohol percentage. There is a long history of heavily alcohol-spiked eggnog.
An book by a North Carolina traveler describes using "half gallon of brandy for an eggnog". In , controversy arose over a Bloomingdales advertisement which referred to adding alcohol to eggnog. Alcohol possession at the academy was prohibited, along with drunkenness and intoxication , both of which could lead to expulsion.
This led to " Windows, furniture, and crockery were smashed; banisters were torn from walls, fights broke out. One eggnog-addled cadet tried, but failed, to shoot his commanding officer. Neither the young Jefferson Davis nor Robert E. Lee , who were in attendance, was found guilty of any offences or expelled. The pre-packaged stuff is mostly made from high-fructose corn syrup, dairy fat, and a bunch of unlovable additives" and it recommends a "two-drink maximum" for health reasons.
Eggnog has a polarized reception from food critics, chefs and consumers; Esquire states that "there doesn't seem to be a middle ground on eggnog. You either love it or hate it". The CBC states that the "ancient drink can be quite divisive. The smell is like an omelette and the consistency defies belief. It lurches around the glass like partially-sentient sludge. Canadian chef Heidi Fink, from Victoria, praises homemade nog but criticizes the "slimy" "glop you can buy in supermarkets".
The drink is more popular in the United States in the s than the United Kingdom, despite the fact that it was developed in Britain and then transplanted to the American colonies in the s. As of , Canadians are drinking less store-bought eggnog. Eggnog is described in the novel Cold Comfort Farm chapter 21 as a "Hell's Angel", made with an egg, two ounces of brandy, a teaspoonful of cream, and some chips of ice, where it is served as breakfast.
Tom and Jerry drinks are mentioned in the film The Apartment. In the film National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation film, the fictional characters Clark Griswold and Cousin Eddie are depicted drinking egg nog out of Wally World mugs, an inside joke which makes reference to the fictional theme park featured in an earlier National Lampoon movie.
In the movie Die Hard , John McClane wishes he could have a normal Christmas with eggnog rather than crawling through a ventilation duct. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Eggnog disambiguation. Food portal Drink portal North America portal.
