Munchie of the Month – May

We’re back again with our incredible munchie of the month entry, that monthly inspirational post that shares new and delicious ways to enjoy CBD oil with all of you!  This month we’re cheating a little since the entry isn’t one that you technically ‘munch,’ but instead is a fantastic tasting beverage with benefits as bright as its uplifting color.  If you haven’t already guessed, we’re about to share the excellent dairy-free drink that is Golden Milk to you, with a CBD oil twist.

What Is Golden Milk?
If you’ve never heard of this beverage, you’re in for a treat.  This beverage is paleo, vegan, and brings with health benefits that make it an excellent booster for the effects of CBD oil.  It all starts with a base of coconut or almond milk blended with a few spices known for their healing properties, including turmeric’s anti-inflammatory traits.  The spices included in this delicious drink are Ceylon cinnamon, raw honey, fresh ginger, turmeric, black pepper, clove, and nutmeg, all of which bring something unique to the dish in terms of flavor and benefit.

Why Golden Milk?
To start with, it’s utterly delicious, and we can’t drive that point home hard enough.  However, it also may help insomnia, skin health, pain from arthritis, boost liver function, protect against cancer, and even ease eczema.  These are just a few of the possible benefits you may get from this delicious drink if you consume it on the regular, especially when you add CBD Oil to the mix.

So How Do I Make It Already?
We hear you! We’re as excited to share this recipe with you as you are to make it.  There are two great ways to have this drink, but they both start with a slow simmer in a pan for 10 minutes.  Be sure to mix in all the ingredients before you start heating, and then pour it out in a mug for a hot drink, or over ice on hot days.
