Anti-inflammatory Recipes: Golden Milk

Recipes for good health, from one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals.

The anti-inflammatory diet is a fiber- and nutrient-rich eating pattern that focuses on whole foods and reduces or eliminates foods known to contribute to chronic inflammation. Potential benefits of the diet include maintenance of health and wellness and prevention of chronic diseases associated with inflammation, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some forms of cancer. This recipe was developed by a team of doctors and nutrition experts at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Drexel University.

1 teaspoon ground turmeric
ยผ teaspoon ground cardamom

Recipes were developed in collaboration with Alexandra Zeitz and the Drexel Food Lab and shot at the Center for Food and Hospitality Management at Drexel University. The videos were created with generous support from the Snider Foundation.

  1. is there a version based on science? without the other ingredients that inflame and with curcumins? or does the cinnamon have those?

  2. I thought black pepper was used to aid in digesting the Turmeric as it is hard for some people body to digest it. Look it up.

  3. There are several variations of this recipe. My suggestion: avoid cow's milk and use an almond or soy milk. Another is to try 100% maple syrup in place of honey if that is all you have around.

  4. Is the Cardamom Green or Black, or white? Everyone says to use fleshly ground pepper, for best absorption?

  5. I donโ€™t cook it for 10 mins, i just simmer it then pour it in a cup with coconut oil ans honey, in that way the temp for coconut oil and honey is just right

  6. Just an fyi for anyone trying to relieve any fungal infection. Do not use any products containing sugar. As the yeast in your body feeds of of this ingredient. Do not use milk unless it is milk kefer (look it up) which is safe to drink and amazing for the immune system. Do not use honey as it contains sugar. You can simply use water instead of milk. No sweetener! Drink hot. Or warm. Do NOT drink cold.

  7. It works , it's in hadis of Prophet Muhammad ( SAW ) . Plus if u put black seed oil it would be better .
