Turmeric and Ginger– Essential Ingredients in Delicious Sore Throat Remedy

turmeric tea I woke up with a sore throat. Not so good. But, not so bad — after a cup of this ancient Ayurvedic remedy that tastes delicious and makes me feel better instantly!

INGREDIENTS, per 1 cup

3 tablespoons half & half (from grass-fed cows)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh (peeled) ginger
1/4 teaspoon (dried ground) turmeric
1 teaspoon honey, preferably local


Put all of the ingredients into a cup or mug.
Add boiling water.
Stir, sip and enjoy!

When you’re finished drinking, you will see that there’s ginger and turmeric left in your cup. If you pour boiling water into your cup, you’ll get a flavorful ginger drink!



On my Pinterest board, Turmeric in Recipes, you can find hundreds of recipes that include turmeric:

Enjoy and be healthy!

    1. Hi Patty! Thanks for your comment and question. About having this every day: That would be nice, but since I stick with lower carbs, I don’t have this drink except when I’m sick or as a dessert instead of a piece of cake, pie or ice cream. The protein, fat, and fiber in the meal slow the body’s uptake of the sugar — and that’s a good thing. BTW, almost every day, though, I have hot water with fresh ginger, first thing in the morning and/or throughout the day. The ginger is eminently re-usable!
