Creamy Turmeric Drink with Honey and Ginger (Anti-Inflammatory)

Turmeric is a spice known as a “superfood” for its long list of nutritive and healthful properties including being a potent anti-inflammatory.  This creamy turmeric drink with honey and ginger is a great way to start or end the day and only takes about 5 minutes to make. Sometimes, I have it for breakfast and sometimes I have it right before bed. I also love it chilled in the summer or on holidays. It is a great eggnog substitute.  What a better time to be drinking a tasty anti-inflammatory drink than during holiday eating!

    Ok. I was skeptical about it being a replacement for eggnog, but I agree! This is a delightful drink.

    How long will this keep? Could I make a batch of it every few days and reheat when I want some?
