"A great home remedy beverage for cough, congestion, colds and skin problems. This winter replace your usual hot cocoa with an invigorating cup of wellness. Bonus points for jammies and slippers. Turmeric can stain clothing and counter tops, so wear an apron; proceed with caution."

I am so glad you all have enjoyed this hot comforting beverage. Like so many of you have mentioned this recipe is not only good but good for you! I was hesitant about submitting the recipe but...

Great taste! This is a very relaxing soy milk drink! I will be drinking more of this!

loved it. I did not think I would even like it, but the spices work together perfectly! am going to try it in hot chocolate.

Very delicious drink!!! I am not a huge fan of tumeric flavor by itself, but this particular blend of spices reminds me of chai tea! I am actually using this to treat a cold and it really seems ...

Very soothing. My new night drink.

I liked the flavours and the concept but found that the black pepper overwhelmed everything else. Maybe my black pepper is especially potent?! I'll try with 1/16th tsp of pepper next time.

This is a very interesting drink. Reminds me of a drink I have tried in Indian restaurant. I didn`t strain the spices too. Next time I will try this drink with coconut milk.

Love the flavors in this. I do not have a cold today but will use this soothing drink next time I do. Just the right amount of Sweetness for me. A real keeper.
