Can you use a different milk

Yes, you can use your milk of choice. Almond milk was used in this recipe but you can simply swap for any milk.

Can you make a batch and store in the fridge

Yes, you can create a bigger batch and store it in the fridge. Allow it to cool some before putting it in your jar and placing it in the fridge.

Once you are ready for a coup, take it out and reheat it a cup or two at time. Only batch cook what you can drink within a week.

Notes*
Dried ginger or turmeric powder can be used in place of the fresh roots. In this case, don’t simmer for 30 minutes. Instead, bring milk to a boil and add in all of your herbs and let steep for 5 minutes. Then add in your oil and honey and blend.

*When using fresh roots, you need to simmer for longer to bring out the good for you properties of the roots. When using dried roots in powder form, they are ready for absorption.

No matter if you use fresh or dried ingredients for this recipe be sure to use quality ingredients.
