Turmeric Milk: For Immune System Support and the Treatment of Inflammation

A recipe for Turmeric Milk :: Treat Inflammation Naturally and Boost the Immune System

Turmeric is one of the world’s most powerful natural healers.

Its’ active ingredient curcumin, has been known for centuries to have extremely potent medicinal properties — and is documented as being effective in treating a variety of conditions.

Most notably, Turmeric is used for immune system support and in the treatment of inflammatory disorders (i.e. arthritis)…but that’s not all!

Top 10 Reasons to Incorporate Turmeric into your Daily Diet

  1. Turmeric is an anti-microbial. That means it will attack both bacterial infections and viral infections and destroy both. It is particularly effective in treating illnesses of the respiratory system (this makes it a superb remedy for the cold and flu season).
  2. It has shown to prevent and stop the growth of prostate, breast, skin, lung and colon cancer
  3. Known to reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes
  4. A natural liver detoxifier.
  5. Research shows it may prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.
  6. As a potent natural anti-inflammatory, turmeric may work just as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs. Furthermore, reducing the risks associated with the side effects of those types of medications.
  7. It’s a natural painkiller.
  8. Aids in fat metabolism (i.e. helps with weight management)
  9. Trusted for many, many years in other cultures as a treatment for depression.
  10. Skin health! It speeds up wound healing and assists in the treatment of acne, eczema, psoriasis, and uneven pigmentation.

So the question becomes…how?

How can we start including this amazing herb into our diets daily?

My solution…

Turmeric Milk
*Modified slightly from a recipe found in Rosemary Gladstar’s Medicinal Herbs: A Beginner’s Guide

Ingredients

-1/4 cup organic Turmeric Root powder
-1 tablespoon organic raw, virgin coconut oil
-1 cup your choice of milk
-sweetener to taste
-1 teaspoon of each: true (sweet) cinnamon, ground ginger, and ashwagandha powder (optional)

Preparation

1. The first step is to make a paste with the Turmeric Root powder (and optional herbal powders, if using). I do this by mixing the powder with just over 1/2 cup of water. Bring the mixture to a boil — stir continuously to prevent burning — then reduce heat immediately and simply simmer until a paste is formed. Transfer Turmeric paste to a glass mason jar and keep stored in the refrigerator for 10-14 days.

2. Combine 1 teaspoon of the Turmeric paste, coconut oil, your choice of milk (Tip: I love making this with my homemade almond milk!), and a sweetener to taste (Tip: I love this with raw honey.)


3. If you’d like it hot, warm the above mixture over low heat in a small pot. If you prefer it cold, add all contents to a blender — with a few cubes of ice — and blend until smooth.

Where to buy Turmeric?

Turmeric root powder can be found in most local grocery stores in the spice aisle.

However, chances are you will over pay for a low quality product!

I buy most of my kitchen spices in bulk through Starwest Botanicals…and doing so proves to be a HUGE savings!

Now it’s your turn! What’s your favorite way to include Turmeric into your family’s diet?

And as always…if you really enjoyed this post I would be so honored if you’d click this link and subscribe to the blog!
To those of you who have been committed readers, I sincerely thank you.

    I just add turmeric to most of my cooking. e.g when making a stir fry, coating vegetarian substitute foods such as quorn. and in lots of other ways like that.
    I also take coconut oil every day.
    I am about to undergo serious surgery so I am going to increase my intake and will try the milk. thank you.

      Hello ScattyCrafter,

      I heard you are going to undertake major surgery, sorry about that. I did too a while ago.
      My recommendation is that you drink 4 glasses of pure aloe water. You can buy it by the gallon at wallmart. Take it as much ahead of the surgery, let’s say 2 weeks before and then after surgery for several weeks or for life. It is the most unbelievable healer! your wounds will close in record time, amazing. It has a slight taste (not disgusting) that if it bothers you may mix with any kind of juice or sodas to cut the taste.
      This I heard from a client who is a plastic surgeon and he wouldn’t touch a patient unless they drank the juice for two weeks prior to surgery. I tested it and recommended it and the results are amazing.
      Good luck!
      Felix

      I want to know what is the benefits and the impact of making a mix of cold cup of milk with honey and a spoon of virgin oil.

  2. Rachel Mullins says:

    It has so many benefits that i will definitely have to try it…but I can’t imagine what it would taste like?! Cinnamon-flavored mustard?? lol Thanks for sharing your information, I’ve been reading for months.

  3. Patricia Gaston says:

    I’ve read it doesn’t get taken up well by the body without pepper. ?

    • I heard that too… Its better absorbed with black pepper.

    • It works fine without pepper, has for centuries. Combined with Pepper has a synergistic effect. That is to say, a dash of pepper increases the healing properties 2000%. No misprint… That’s two thousand! Isn’t mother nature amazing?!

  4. Elaine Pollard says:

    I bought whole turmeric root at an Asian grocery– could I use that?

  5. I am wondering the purpose of making the paste rather than adding turmeric directly to the milk or a green drink which is what i have been adding it to. I noticed benefit to arthritis issues when incorporating turmeric but then grew to not care for the taste of it so now I take it along with piperine in capsule form.

    • What is piperine used for?

      • my understanding is that piperine (the alkaloid in pepper) works with turmeric to increase the absorption in the body.
        Here also is what Melisa posted:

        According to the Linus Pauling institute, black pepper does increase the absorption of curcumin, but not significantly enough or consistently enough that you have to always take the two together. Any is better than none!
        There are some safety issues to keep in mind:: tumeric is a blood thinner, be cautious if taking blood thinners or prior to surgery. Tumeric lowers blood sugar, those taking diabetes or hypoglycemic medications should be cautious. Tumeric increases stomach acid and bile production, and can also increase the absorption of some medications.

    I use turmeric in my “scrambled eggs”. I have been a subscriber for quite awhile, but not all the recipes are vegan. :( Still some seriously good ideas and I can make my own substitutions in most recipes. For “scrambled eggs” I break up firm tofu with all the water squeezed out, marinate in Bragg’s Liquid Aminos and then cook like scrambled eggs with as much turmeric as I can stand. The turmeric also gives it a yellow color…so much so that hungry guests don’t even know the difference at first. (Granted I add in lots of colorful veggies…and I was NEVER a fan of tofu until I tried this recipe!) Thank you for this recipe. I just finished a half marathon and I have some major inflamation going on in my joints at the moment. And Alzheimer’s might not be that far off…anything is better than nothing!

    • Karen, the source of your joint pain may be the soy you are eating! Esp. if it is GMO, which most is, unless you are buying it from a local co-op or some such. Corn and wheat can also cause the issues you describe.

  7. I found a different recipe on other sites but they were very different from this one. I will have to try combining them to see what it is like, I think the coconut oil will greatly improve the benefits. The mix I made up (from the other sites) I toss in the powder mixture into meatloaf, deviled eggs, stir frys (lots of different dishes) people tell me they cannot even tell it is in the foods. I added it to foods because I did not really care for the drink, but I think this may be more to my liking. Thank you.

  8. Very interesting. I will be trying the milk soon. I like catching your articles on Facebook.

  9. I could definitely increase my intake as I only use it currently in curries and the scrambled tofu i make. I make my own milk sometimes and would really like to see how this tastes as I might be able to make sneaky turmeric smoothies too :-)
    I’d really like to know the reason for the paste as I’m a bit of a chuck in person and if I have to do bits to it first I’m less likely to get round to it?
    Thanks for the heads up and I’ll do some of my own research now too.

  10. this sounds AWESOME! i am making some now! have you thought of ever adding fenugreek? another very powerful, beneficial herb..

  11. I suspect the paste is to make it easier to mix the powder with the milk, like slaking cornflour with water before adding it to whatever you’re trying to thicken.

    I often add turmeric to rice, otherwise it tends to be just in curries and dahls- must try and squeeze it in in other foods.

  12. This is SO good… Just made a batch of the paste yesterday, and made some almond milk this morning – Drinking this in replacement of my morning coffee… Excellent! :))

  13. (It tastes like drinking a morning chai – this one ice cold which is nice on these hot summer days – but suppose one could heat it a bit as well in winter)

    • I don’t have a gall bladder (bile ducts). Is it still ok to use turmeric since it increases bile production?

  15. How much turmeric do you put in with the half cup water to make the paste? Thank you for all the great info your site provides!!!

  16. hello,
    just my 2 cents :-)

    I think like everything that God has provided us , we should use things in moderation. No one item is a cure all.. as much as I would like it to be ! If we ate or drank EveryThing we are advised.. we would do Nothin’ else :-)

    I believe in the old ways.. eat a different colored veggie & fruit everyday.:-) eat pickles they contain vinegar ( Turminc) :-) Have a good steak once in a while.. go meatless some nights & indulge in a Lemon Merange Pie most the time :-)
    Get a good nights sleep BECAUSE you worked hard all day & have said your prayers :-)
    Respect your elders, kiss all the babies & Do ALL Work for the Glory of God :-)

  17. I put turmeric in the boiling water for orzo pasta, drain, then mix with sauteed kale and add lemon juice and grated parmesean.

  18. I just purchased some bulk Turmeric to put in capsules. I’ll be taking them as supplements for relief of arthritis symptoms.

  19. My favorite way to use turmeric is in a yogurt sauce, which we use with all sort of veggies & other dip-ables. I think it is an indian recipe that I have modified.
    1 T. Turmeric, 1/2 T Crushed Garlic, 1/4 C. Water –Mix together & bring to a boil. Let cool & mix into 1 C. Yogurt with a dash of salt & pepper to taste. Allow flavors to marry for @ least 15 minutes.
    This is delicious as a salad dressing & can also be used for pasta salad or brushed on meat before grilling.

  20. Just made it and loved it. I mixed it with warm milk and raw honey. Hopefully it will help get rid of this nasty cough I’ve had for 6 weeks!

    • My son cannot shake to cough from the whooping cough he got in May. Good idea.

      • Hi, depending on how old your son is, I came across a great cough syrup from rosemarys herbal website. You take organic white onion, cut in half then half moon slices, few cloves garlic, then put in sauce pan, and cover with just enough raw pure honey to cover onions, heat on low until onions and garlic are cooked down, stirring occasionally. No need to strain, onion and garlic are soft. Give teaspoon of syrup throughout day. The honey is good for coughs and onion and garlic are great cold fighters.

  21. This is good information and I would like to try the turmeric for my fibromyalgia. Is capsulizing it and taking one or two a day safe or is that too much at once? Any thoughts? By the way lisalynn I totally loved and agree with your comment :)

    • Hi Windy! I too have fibro-going on 14+ years. Turmeric is supposed to help with the joint pain though this recipe will be the first time I have tried using it in large quantity, usually I just add it to my cooking here and there. More importantly, I recently found a naturopathic doctor whose specialty is chronic fatigue and fibro! If you are interested their website is http://www.healing.org. I feel like I am finally getting the help I need and have found people who understand what I am going through, probably even better than I do considering they have been treating patients for over 40 years! Long before doctors even recognized Fibro as a disorder. Dr. Posenecker(founder of the Clymer Healing Center) also wrote a great book, “Chronic Fatigue unmasked.” A total life changer for me. Windy, I wish you the best in dealing with your Fibro!
      Blessings!

      • LOOK UP ON LINE THE JUICE LADY… SHE HEALED HERSELF IN 3 MONTHS WITH JUICING FROM FIBRO AND CHRONIC FATIQUE..GREAT TESTIMONY AND INSIGHTS

      • You might also try going gluten free for the fibro pain. I was resistant to it, did not want to give up my bread, but I went on a 21 day cleanse with no meat, no grains, no sweetners except small amounts of raw honey, and limited dairy. I noticed after just a few days I no longer had pain that kept me awake at night. When the cleanse was over and I began to slowly add things back I noticed that when I added grains the pain began to return. There are good gluten free breads, and the trade off is so worth it.

  22. Made some of this on a late August chilly morning. Thank you. Delicious with Raw Honey!
    Making the paste first really helped it combine nicely and blend with the milk.
    3 ??? please:
    Is the 1 Tablespoon Coconut oil in recipe added in when cooking the paste or just in the final drink with the milk?
    Any concerns for this staining your teeth. I was thinking to drink it with a straw. Can then also stir it up during drinking, to mix in some of the sediment on the bottom?
    Is there a reason for storing the paste in only glass container? Probably stain the plastic?

  23. Marilee Reyes, Eugene, Oregon says:

    I love all of your posts, so helpful. I have been making a blend of turmeric, cinnamon, fresh ginger, cayenne and honey to add to my lemon water. Hopefully I can do the same with this concoction. Thank you again for all the information you share with us.

  24. I love this idea—you are always so clever! :-) My special son’s syndrome struggles with weight gain and an excessive food drive. I am very interested in trying this. Blessings~Kim

  25. Lisalynn…you wrote a great message!

  26. I would like to know if it help fibromyalgia.

    • I found out by accident that when I cut grains out of my diet my pain went away. I’ve gone gluten free and completely got rid of my fibro pain. Use gluten free breads and sprouted, or ancient grain breads and pastas, there are some really good ones available.That is my recommendation for fibromyalgia.

  27. How do you make almond milk? Thanks

    • You go to the grocery store and buy it–it comes in cardboard containers near canned milk.

    • Here is a recipe I found for Almond Milk:
      1 cup Raw Almonds That Have Been Soaked In Cold Water For 8-48 Hours And Drained
      4 cups Cold, Filtered Water
      1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste Or Pure Vanilla Extract
      1 teaspoon Agave Nectar Or Honey (or More To Taste)
      1 pinch Salt
      In a blender, place drained soaked almonds and the cold water; blitz for 60-90 seconds. Strain mixture in a seive lined with several layers of cheesecloth, squeezing every bit of liquid you can out of the cheesecloth.
      To the liquid, stir in the vanilla bean paste, agave nectar, and a tiny pinch of salt. Use right away or refrigerate for up to 5 days.
      Note: You can add the strained almond bits to baked goods, or toast them to sprinkle on cereal, yogurt, and ice cream.

  28. Francesca says:

    I put turmeric in everything…Seriously. It is very mild so it doesn’t change the flavor that much. I put it in my rice when cooking, in my tomato sauce, in eggs, in potato salad, in tuna salad, etc…Love your info. I think this is the best blog I read. Kudos to you :)

  29. Anna Atkins says:

    I use turmeric in our all purpose seasoning blend-we use it for cooking meat, veggies, marinades, dry rubs, dressings, etc. The mix is 1part sea salt, 1 part black pepper, 2 parts turmeric powder and a few pinches each of cumin, cinnamon and coriander powders. It’s subtle spice flavor compliments so many dishes without overpowering them or making everything taste the same. The key is to incorporate pretty small amounts of the cumin, cinnamon and coriander. I love the turmeric milk idea! I think I’ll try adding the spice paste to my morning smoothies…

  30. I use turmeric quite a bit, but my family doesn’t know! If they think it should have butter in something, I add turmeric for the color. I sprinkle some on popcorn, which is probably the best sneak in.

  31. I love this blog. I just hopped on my computer to email my sons teacher to tell her he was still sick and not coming to school again today. The blog email flashed up and all I saw was immune support. I’ve been using fresh tumeric in juices and don’t mind it in small amounts. Will head down the shops this morning to get the rest of the ingredients to make this milk. We’ve had a bad winter down here in Melbourne, Australia. So many nasty bugs that most of us are going down with. Can’t wait to try it on the whole family.

  32. Sandra Behn says:

    Thanks so much, I love your blog, you have such great recipes. Keep up the good work!

  33. Andrea- made this last night and to my pleasant suprise I loved the way it tasted….LOL (I wasnt too sure how I would like the tumeric!!) It actually is very “chai-ish” in taste and was great hot- the perfect wind down to a long day. Of course its gonna be the start of my day this morning!! The other great thing I love is that my husband is after me all the time to drink milk – haha, wont be a problem with this! Thanks for sharing once again!!

  34. Is tumeric okay to use when you are pregnant? Thanks

    • Of course check with your physician, I used it when I was pregnant and while I breast fed. I imagine it’s like most things…all in moderation.

  35. I still need to know if tumeric and, or piperine are helpful for fibromylagia?

    • I would think it would be good for fibro. I would certainly try it and see if it helps.

    • Yes, it is! You can refer to an earlier comment by Windy that I just replied to. Turmeric is great for many reasons, the anti-inflammoatury aspects help with the joint pain for Fibro patients. I have had Fibro for 14+ years and have found a naturopath that specializes in treating it. I am beyond happy! I mentioned the website in my earlier comment in case you are interested. Good Luck to you!

  36. You gave a wonderful site!

  37. This was surprisingly delicious and quite timely. Thank you for sharing!

  38. I am a newbie to all of this but came across this recipe via Facebook. Thanks soo much for sharing, I have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis so I am taking these posts to heart and will definitely add Tumeric to my grocery list.

  39. Does the paste HAVE to stay in the fridge for 10-14 days or is that just how long it can stay in? Thanks :D

  40. Please tell me where to buy piperine or is it peperine. Thank you Judith

  41. I was recently turned onto ashwaghanda milk, I wonder what the two mixed would taste like :-) or if they should be mixed?

  42. My daughter & I just started taking turmeric capsules & probiotics along with ditching dairy in hopes to clear up our pesky mild acne. I’ve read in some cultures they used to apply turmeric directly to the skin too. This recipe looks perfect! Thank you.

  43. We just made this and this is WAY too much oil to drink straight up. Is the tablespoon of oil supposed to be added to the paste? I’m a little confused, anyone know? Other than that the taste is fantastic and I’m really excited about the health benefits!

  44. Great recipe!

  45. Well I’ve just made this and have it sitting in my Frig! Can’t wait to try. You said you make it with your homemade almond milk. I will be looking on how to make that next too.

  46. I was wondering how often one should drink the Turmeric Milk (I’ve read that large doses can cause problems, the least of which is upset stomach, diarrhoea and such). Also, can children drink it on a regular basis safely? Thanks very much.

  47. I use 1-2 Tbsp of Turmeric in one 8 oz mug of very warm (drinkable, not too hot) fat free milk for coughs that produce phlegm. It helps open the air ways and reduce coughing. Sip throughout the day, making another cup as needed. I use fat free milk because fat in milk causes phlegm, but the FF doesn’t. (for me anyway) I recommended this to a friend with bronchitis, because she couldn’t afford antibiotics and she was healed within a few days.

  48. I must try this. I have many of the ailments described and I love hot milk.

  49. This drink was wonderful. I made the paste of 1/4 cup turmeric, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, and 1/2 cup water as directed. Into a blender I put 8oz homemade kefir, 1 tablespoonful coconut oil, and 1 tsp of the paste. I sweetened with stevia and drank it warm (room temperature).

  50. I don’t have my gallbladder and I have fat liver. could be dangerous if I take turmeric? I’m afraid of the acid in the stomach or the excess of bile. But I want to try it.

  51. The 1/4 of cup turmeric, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, and 1/2 cup water already is paste-like for me. How can I bring to a boil and simmer what already seems to be a paste?

  52. Amazing! I’ve been looking for a way to enjoy Turmeric as I’ve been suffering with a bad bout of asthma and bronchitus. I’ve got a hot cup of turmeric milk (almond milk) sitting next to me right now, waiting for it to cool a bit. Can’t wait to get the first good night’s sleep I’ll have had in about two months!
    The paste cooked up very easily for me. Used the recipe above and cooked it over low heat for about 10 minutes or until it lost the glossy look from the water. I’m not sure but I’m pretty certain the reason for cooking or making the paste is to rehydrate the spices and bloom the flavor. In most Indian cooking that I do the recipe calls for “frying” the spices in oil before adding other ingredients to bloom the flavor. Not sure but sounds good to me. Also, yes, this will stain plastic so either keep it in glass or keep one container just for this.

  53. i heard that a paste of turmeric and olive oil can be used to treat planter warts if you apply it often

  54. I made this today for the 2nd time, with better results this go ’round. I warmed the paste and oil in goat’s milk with a touch of honey for a soothing hot drink. Delish. Giving the family a nice immune boost. Thanks

  55. dont use pepper. Pepperine is a carcinogen. Not all phytochemicals are friendly. Many are. Turmeric is. Pepper is not.

  56. Turmeric has great medicinal properties. However, when used as long term medicine and in quantities that are far larger when used in cooking it is important to know that it has a drying affect on the organs and systems of the body and should be used in conjunction with other balancing spices.

    For example, turmeric powder mixed with coriander powder and fennel seed powder in a ratio of 1:4. That is one part turmeric powder, four parts coriander powder and four parts fennel seed powder. Mix well and use as needed for medicinal purposes in your milk, homemade deeps and cooking. However, you must always remember ALL THINGS IN MODERATION.

  57. I made this yesterday, and I love it! I had another cup today with yesterday’s paste, and I noticed that for about 1 1/2 hours I felt warm all over. Definitely opens the blood vessels, it does! I will share this link with readers on my blog. Thank you!

  58. I bought Turmeric a few weeks ago to use for a cleanse recipe that I haven’t actually started because I couldn’t remember where I found it, haha! I just read about the blood thinning possibility. I am having minor surgery next week, my foot, should I not start using the Turmeric now, for the healing benefit?

  59. Okisteve says:

    The idea of the boiling and paste is to make it easy to dissolve in the milk, and it really does, compared to just stirring in the turmeric powder. Like the person said about slaking cornstarch (hey – I must try that!).

    It is a very popular tea and especially a hangover remedy in Japan.

    And it does not stain teeth or ceramics although it does stain almost everything else including toothbrush bristles, Corian countertops, plastic cups, and wooden spoons. But the stain mostly comes out with detergent (except for carpets and don’t ask me how I know). Great stuff and I feel I have lots of energy that was missing before.

  60. Turmeric milk is Very good healthy drink for those who suffering from wheezing, asthma. Not only that it prevent as well as cure many disease because it is rich in anti-oxidants thus improve the immunity in our body. It has got plenty of healing properties.

  61. All this is so interesting and eye opener!! I’m extremely new at this, and would like to know if its safe to drink turmeric milk and using turmeric in general, during pregnancy?
    Thanks guys :)

    Just made this. It tastes delicious. I used coconut milk. Thank you so much. :-) xxx

    One table spoon in milk .Boil. Add sugar .This is the best treatment for internall injuries

  67. MY INTEREST IN TURMERIC and OTHER NATURAL MEDICINES
    I am here for the first time. After reading some posts, I found it to be very interesting. I believe in natural medicine as a way to healing although I am not much experienced in that area. I am seeking some advise.

    HOW I GOT HERE
    I was referred to this site be a friend whose daughter is a natural medicine doctor. He sent this to me knowing my interest in natural cures. I am East Indian by birth. When I was growing up to be a teenager I remember on a daily basis that turmeric powder (we called it HALDI) was the common day to day cooking ingredient item well known, seen and talked about around the house and kitchen by my elders. I remember as an example, they use it along with other spices when marinating fish to get rid of the fishy smell much prior to cooking it. And then turmeric paste is also smeared almost entirely on a bride’s body a day or so before the wedding day to make her complexion appear beautiful for the wedding day. Therefore not new to turmeric and its common Indian uses, it makes me even more interested to know if I can use it for my medicinal purposes.

    MY AILMENT AND WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR IN TREATMENT
    I am suffering from severe arthritis in my neck area. I wonder if besides orally consuming turmeric as suggested, if anyone is aware of any other known and effective turmeric medication for external treatment.

    A TURMERIC RELATED SMALL STORY FROM THE PAST
    Historically speaking, I recall a long time ago back home when I was 10-12 years of age, I used to daily accompany my mother to a far away country-side location for a good while, where she used to get her whole arm treated, pasted and bandaged with some mixture of turmeric and other herbal medicines by a local homeopathic doctor. The medication had a strong odour with turmeric included and accented high. At that age, I was a bit uncomfortable having to tolerate the odour on a daily basis. Out of respect, courtesy and feelings for my mother and having no other choice, I continued the daily routine trip with her dutifully assisting and helping her to the daily journey to and return home.

  68. every morning sometimes twice a day usually before or after meals I drink apple cider vinegar teaspoon of turmeric cayenne pepper aloe vera juice answer the Serato cheese sauce I drink that are those pictures okay to drink together everyone saying turmeric and milk but the benefits of all those things can’t hurt to mix together can they? I’ve had broke my back in 2000 and with that I have a broken pens sometimes I have back pain but not often and I’m 43. Any input on any of that would be much appreciated thank you

  69. Turmeric works best when black pepper is mixed with it.
