Golden Milk

In my quest to keep with my regiment and also stay warm, I’ve discovered this yummy hot alternative to cold smoothies.  It takes minutes to whip together, it tastes yummy and helps keep my migraines at bay.  So win-win. (I also refer to this as Turmeric Milk in my upcoming posts) Makes 2 servings 2 cups Silk Coconut Milk 2 tsp. turmeric powder (or fresh grated turmeric root) 1 healthy knob fresh ginger (or 2 tsp. ground ginger) 1 tbsp.

Migraine Blend Chronicles, Week 1:

Migraine Blend Chronicles, Day 1:

Blend: Pineapple, mango, coconut meat, coconut yogurt, 4 oz. of green juice/beet juice, healthy knob of ginger, water. I.WAS.NOT.READY.

When I run out of the coconut yogurt, it will
