How to make Golden Milk

I guees i'd better write this aritcle in English because it's not only easy for English readers but also for my Thai friends. 
As a Thai, i love eating curry and almost all kinds of fresh and dried herbs. I was living in a small villlage in Thailand when i was jong where there were no medicines (like we use these days). Whenever i got sick, my mother gave me a kind of drink which was made from herbs, roots of some plants and water. She always kept those herbs rapped in a white cloth.  I had no idea which kinds of herb they were but they seemed to work. When i grew up and moved to a bigger town where the medicines were available, i had to take medicines when i got sick. Now i got two beautiful kids and a lot of times i wonder if those medicines were really neccessary. My oldest son is now almost 6 years old and the only medicine he has used is Suppositoruim (paracetamol for kids). 

I love puur and fresh food and i always spend time to prepare food. I believe that everyone would like to live healthy but it's just not that easy to do these days when there are a lot of "food seductions". Maybe this is one of good and healthy kinds of drink that you might enjoy making it at home, like i do. 
Try this Golden Milk made from Turmeric and milk because it's easy and worth trying. Plenty of health advantages which i can't even remember (in this case Google is a place to find out). Turmeric is easy to find and it costs almost nothing but it gives back unbelievable good health. 
How to make Turmeric paste for Golden Milk:
- 5 tbsp. of  turmeric, cook with water with low heat about 3-4 minutes. Stir slowly. 
- If it's too thick, add some more water. 
- Add some fresh grounded black pepers (about 1tsp.) 
- leave it to cool down and keep this paste in a pot in the fridge, it will last 2-3 weeks. 
How to drink it? 
- Heat the milk (or soy milk/ almond milk/ goat milk) in a cup. You can use a pan or a  microwave.
- Add 1 tsp. of turmaric paste
- Add 1 tsp. of coconut oil. This is very important because it works wonderful with fat. You can also use another kind of oil/ fat but i recommend coconut oil because it's natural.
- Add black pepers. This is a must! without black pepers, this drink will not work well.
* if you are not used to this drink this golden milk,  you may add some honey or sugar. Kids love it and do i!

I recommend one or two glasses a day. One in the morning and another one before you go to bed. 

Healthy and above all ...delicious!
