Spice up your memory

I drink a concoction of spices which is quite good that I first saw on Dr Oz.  Dr Sanjay Gupta drinks this every evening for calming.  Now that there is more in the news about the cognitive benefits of turmeric on Alzheimer patients and the anti-inflamatory effects of ginger and cinnamon I thought I’d share.

1 cup almond milk – either vanilla or chocolate

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp ginger

1 tsp honey to drizzle over top

Heat the almond milk in microwave. Stir in spices.  Drizzle honey on top. (You can add a packet of Stevia to the mix if you like your drinks sweet)  I like the dark chocolate almond milk and don’t add honey or stevia.

I buy bulk turmeric, cinnamon and ginger in the market and mix up a batch to have on hand.   I add  1-3/4 tsp of mixed spices to one cup of almond milk.
