Every once in a while I'm hit with a wave of sneezing, nose blowing and sinus inflammation, and it is extremely frustrating, especially when the neti pot doesn't help. When I last found myself in this miserable state I whipped up a beverage with some anti-inflammatory ingredients in hopes it would soothe my sinuses; and low and behold it did!

This sweet and spicy beverage can help reduce inflammation in many parts of the body, and can be enjoyed warm or cold.

Servings: 1

Ingredients (use organic whenever possible):

  • Turmeric - powder (1/2 Tbsp) or root (1 inch piece)
  • Ginger root - 1 inch piece (or to taste)
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/2 Tbsp (or to taste)
  • Stevia - powder or drops, to taste*
  • Water - 1 cup

* I used 4 drops of Omica vanilla stevia drops. If you don't like the taste of stevia, feel free to use a low glycemic sweetener, like coconut sugar, or none at all.


Directions:

  1. Blend together. 
    • A high speed blender is not necessary but if you do not use one you will have to grate the turmeric and ginger roots before blending.
