My Cuppa: The Terrific Turmeric Tisane!

A few posts back, I wrote about the wonders of turmeric. Though it’s mainly used in Indian cuisine, it also make a great beverage. Here’s how you do it:


  • 2 cups coconut milk
  • 1 ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 ½ tbsp maple syrup
  • Pinch of black pepper


  • Heat the coconut oil in a sauce pan until melted.
  • Add the coconut milk and give it a whisk.
  • Add all the remaining ingredients and whisk until it gets a little foamy.
  • Pour contents into a cup and enjoy!

All together now!

There are many variations to make turmeric tisane. In fact, this beverage may also be enjoyed as a cold drink over ice. Play around with some of the spices you have in your pantry. Check out the options below to create a yummy version yourself!

Golden glory!


  • Try other milk substitutes such almond, soy, or just go with plain regular milk.
  • Instead of maple syrup, try some honey. Perhaps even stevia or coconut sugar.
  • Experiment with other spices such nutmeg, allspice, cloves, or ginger. The list goes on.
