1 inch turmeric root, peeled and grated or ½ teaspoon ground turmeric

¾-inch ginger root, peeled and grated


2 cups milk (I like unsweetened almond, but any is fine)

2 pinches of ground cardamom (optional)

1½ to 2 tablespoons honey (or to taste)

Place the milk, turmeric, ginger, cardamom (if using) and honey into a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer then turn the heat off. Leave to infuse for a couple of minutes, stir, then pour the milk through a fine sieve or mesh strainer into two mugs. Squeezing out the last of the gingery turmeric juice with the back of a spoon. Stir and check for sweetness, adding more honey if needed. Drink right away or refrigerate; it will keep for couple of days. Stir before serving. Makes two servings.
