Turmeric, a plant stem that looks a bit like ginger, has gotten a bit of a reputation as a super spice. Research shows that small amounts of this vibrant-colored orange-yellow spice may help alleviate aches and pains associated with arthritis, among other benefits. Try this delicious “shot” to get your daily Rx. Bottoms up! 

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 16 shots (1 ounce each)
  • 2 cups milk (any preferred type)
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch black pepper
  • Optional ground ginger

Whisk together all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer for about 5 minutes. Let cool slightly—and enjoy a 1-ounce shot! Serve warm, room temperature or cold.

Pour leftovers into 1-ounce ice cube tray and freeze. Once they’re frozen, you can pop them into a zip-top bag for easier storage in the freezer. Defrost 1 at a time and enjoy as a daily Rx.
