Recipe Notes

It's best to use the fresh root when it comes to ginger root and turmeric root. But dried ginger or turmeric powder can be used in place of the fresh roots if necessary. If you use the dried powder you don't have to simmer for 30 minutes. Instead, bring the milk to a boil and add in all of your herbs. Let the moon milk tea mixture steep for only 5 minutes. Then add in your coconut oil and honey, and blend. When using the fresh roots, you need to freshly grate or cut small and simmer for longer. The simmering process helps to bring out the 'good for you' properties of the roots, which make the golden moon milk tea the most beneficial. When you use the dried roots in powder form, they are already ready for absorption.
