- pinch of black pepper
- 1 tbsp ghee or butter (leave out for a vegan option)
- 1 tsp almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp maple syrup (or less for a slightly less sweet version)
- pinch of sea salt
- 16 oz boiling water
Heat coconut oil in a small sauce pan over medium heat.
Add ground turmeric, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper and freshly grated ginger and stir, cooking spices until very fragrant, about 1 minute.
Scrape coconut oil and cooked spices into a high speed blender and add 1 tbsp ghee or butter, 1 tsp almond butter, vanilla extract and pinch of sea salt and water.
Blend on high until pale yellow and emulsified!
Enjoy immediately and say hello to a restful nights sleep!
Wash out your blender immediately after blending to avoid staining! Even with washing it out immediately you may have some yellow tint left behind. It will fade after some time, but if you want to avoid staining your blender another option is to use an immersion blender.
- If you want to plan for future batches, double or even triple the coconut oil and spice mixture and save the extra in the refrigerator until ready to use.
