Is anyone else struggling with the turmeric milk or is it just me? I've been substituting with vanilla chai but I feel like I'm not sticking to the plan. Any suggestions on alternatives or a different take on the turmeric? Almond instead of rice milk maybe? Any ideas? โ“๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ˜

Hello! Yes you can substitute the milk to your taste buds so by using almond or coconut milk. Alternatively you can just have a lemon and honey if you don't like the taste of turmeric ๐Ÿ˜˜

Really not a fan of the turmeric milk either.

I haven't tried it yet. while I like the ingredients, together they don't sound appealing. I've been meaning to ask Madeleine what the benefits are. I know tumeric is great but is there a reason for it in the milk?

I am used to turmeric in drinks so not so much an issue - when we were kids my mother used to give us hot milk with dry roasted ajwain and turmeric as a cold remedy. Perhaps you could try my mother's other homemade remedy for sore throats - turmeric, honey and ginger juice lozenges followed by some hot water or dissolved in hot water.

I use unsweetened homemade almond or cashew milk! cashew milk makes it really thick and smooth, i do struggle a bit with the ginger bits so i think i may strain it next time or use ground ginger! my son and sister didn't like even when sweetened! i don't sweeten it, though! I think Madeleine said somewhere that she drinks either turmeric milk or water with lemon in the morning so maybe you could try that!

Sisforsophie I was told off by the dentist yesterday for drinking lemon water. Apparently it softens the enamel. She said if I must drink it then don't sip just drink it in one go....

I don't like it either so have missed it out. I just have porridge.

I had it once, wasn't too keen and don't like faffing with making it first thing... However, I made a batch for 3 drinks, drained it and having one now and it is much better.

I don't, I really don't like it. I like most things but can't stomach that!! ๐Ÿ˜–

Don't worry, unfortunately you're not alone. ๐Ÿ™ˆI really didn't like it after the first taste (though I like and regularly use all the ingredients, just not put together) I think it was the ginger bits I found tricky to drink so I'll try the strainer idea - thanks guys. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
I haven't altered the recipe as I thought maybe it was best to just skip it altogether, so I've just been having my usual water and lemon each morning. ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŒŸ Does any one else not have the turmeric milk?

I haven't tried it and don't feel bad for missing it. The thought of it turns my stomach!

I use coconut milk and strain the ginger using a tea strainer, have started to really like it, nice and warming.

I've been using flaxseed milk and it's been pretty tasty! I substituted with ground dried ginger a couple of times and that seemed to mix better together.

I can't take it either - it's the texture! My daughter (without meaning to be gross) said it looked like snot.... Don't think that's helped! ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I have not been having it cos I don't like it , you will still get loads of nutrients from the plan, it's not going to hurt you not having it. X
