I’ve been reading about anti-histamine foods and working to get as many into my diet as possible. This recipe for Golden Milk is a twist on a few I’ve found around the internet. Every ingredient in it is an anti-histamine food and/or supplement derived from food. It’s a sweet and somewhat spicy drink I find quite delicious and so far, it’s one of my favorite ways to take curcumin and quercetin. It’s quickly becoming a daily ritual.
If you don’t already take these supplements, I urge you to read up on them and check with your doctor to ensure there aren’t any contraindications for use with any of your conditions. These are my articles on curcumin and quercetin, but checking more than one source always makes sense when choosing your supplements to ensure you have all the information you need.
You can put a single dose of each of these supplements into the Golden Milk, at whatever dose you normally take. I don’t specify an amount on these ingredients because this is a decision that should be made by you and your healthcare team.
Anti-Histamine Golden Milk
- 8 ounces coconut milk (from the dairy section)
- 1 dose Curcumin powder
- 1 dose Quercetin powder
- Ginger root
- 1 teaspoon sweetener of choice (optional)
Preparation Using a Tea Infuser
Pour coconut milk in a coffee mug. Heat coconut milk in the microwave for 90 seconds. While cooking, grate or mash approximately 1 tablespoon of Ginger Root and set it aside. There’s no need to peel the ginger beforehand. Add the ginger to your tea infuser and set it aside.
Retrieving your coconut milk from the microwave, add powders and mix thoroughly with an immersion blender or whisk (I use the built-in immersion blender on my coffee maker just long enough to blend everything and get a slight froth).
Add the tea infuser and allow ginger to steep 2-3 minutes before removing it. Serve warm in a coffee mug.
Preparation Using a Strainer
