Pumpkin Chai Tea with Turmeric

Turmeric has been getting a lot of press for it’s health benefits lately. Every time I jump on Facebook I find new articles on the powers of turmeric, so I figured it was time to try it myself and created this Pumpkin Chai Tea with Turmeric recipe.   It’s been purported as cancer fighting, anti-inflammatory, and having anti-depressant properties, and that just scratches the surface of all the amazing things this golden powder can do for you.

I have been using turmeric to help reduce medications in my own life. I have had asthma since the 1980’s and have become addicted to Advair. I’ve tried to get off the purple discus inhaler for 10 years, but never with any success. Since I’ve started drinking this tea I’ve kicked the expensive medication and been off it for over a month now. In the past trying to get off the medication has landed me in the ER with severe asthma attacks, but not this time… hurray!

I’ve also been treating my extraordinarily painful nerve disease known as CRPS / RSD, this turmeric tea has helped reduce pain and swelling. Along with my nerve pain diet this Turmeric Chai Tea with Pumpkin Pie Spice has become a delicious healer, and at only 60 calories I can feel good about enjoying a cup or two each day.

    Fat free, oat milk, soy milk all work. Or remove the milk and use 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt and water together.

  2. I love your site!! I have RA and take turmeric/curcumin twice a day (for the past year) and it has greatly reduced my need for other pain meds. I couldn’t go without it. I love Chai tea and keep it around so I am going to just open up one of my curcumin gel caps into the tea. Have been using unsweet almond milk for 3 years now and love it! Thanks for this amazing idea! Also, although I do make lemon/cucumber water, I’ve been encouraged to “shake it up” and today I’m having apple cinnamon water 🙂 Keep up the good work!

  3. Sounds great, but to really up the power, sprinkle a bit of black pepper. Black pepper helps the body to use the turmeric properly.

  4. Hey Audrey, I’m going to start your program ASAP! I feel like things are snowballing with my weight and not in the right direction:) Thank you for all of the wonderful info you share. Question…I would like my family to drink this also, as well as some of the smoothies. So many recipes call for almond milk, or almonds…and my teenage daughter is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts and soy. Any suggestions for a substitution? What would fat free milk do to this recipe?
