1/4-1/2 Tsp turmeric powder
Thin slice fresh ginger (optional)
1 Whole green cardamom (optional)
1/2 Inch piece cinnamon stick
2-3 Black peppercorns
1 Star anise
1/4 Vanilla bean (scraped) or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 Tsp coconut oil or ghee optional
Sweetener of your choice
1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring all of the ingredients except coconut oil/ghee and sweetener to a simmer.
2. Stir well and lower the heat to a low or low (you want it to simmer but not boil). Cover with the lid ajar and allow the milk to simmer for 5 minutes or more depending on how strong you want the flavour of the spices.
3. Turn off the heat and strain into your cup. Add coconut oil or ghee (if using) as well as your desired sweetener.
