Servings 1 serving


  • 1 1 1/2 inch piece fresh turmeric root, peeled and grated (or 1 teaspoon ground turmeric)
  • 1 1 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger root, peeled and grated (or ¼ teaspoon ground ginger)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 pinch ground turmeric (optional)
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon (optional)


  • Combine turmeric root or powder, ginger root, and honey together in a bowl, crushing the turmeric and ginger as much as possible.
  • Heat almond milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once small bubbles begin to form around the edges, reduce heat to low. Transfer about 2 tablespoon milk to turmeric mixture to allow mixture to soften and honey to melt into a paste-like mixture.
  • Mix the turmeric paste into milk in the saucepan; raise temperature to medium-low and cook, stirring continuously, until fully combined. Blend with an immersion blender for a smooth texture.
  • Pour turmeric tea into a mug and top with ground turmeric and cinnamon.
