Golden Milk For Dogs- An Anti-inflammatory Powerhouse
40 CommentsMonday, 1 August 2016 | Kate
Golden milk is a comforting, delicious drink with all the powerful antioxidant properties of turmeric, minus the bitter taste. Turmeric is without doubt one of the world’s super spices with well documented, powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
It will help with:
• Reducing inflammation
Make it with goat’s milk as dogs don’t tolerate the lactose in cow’s milk. Add raw coconut oil as turmeric is fat soluble, meaning it dissolves in fat and oil, rather than water to make it more bioavailable.
All you do is make a turmeric paste, store it in the fridge for up to 30 days or freeze it in small amounts. Then you can make golden milk any time you like or the need arises.
• 240 ml goats milk
Heat the milk and stir in the turmeric paste until dissolved, add the honey, coconut oil and black pepper. Stir and drink.
