1 cup unsweetened nut or seed milk
½ cup hot water
1 tsp. ground turmeric
1 tbs. sesame seeds (or 1 teaspoon tahini)
1 tsp. raw local honey (or a few drops of stevia, or  black strap molasses if you’re looking for extra iron and like the taste)
A sprinkle of black pepper (or 1 drop doTERRA black pepper oil)
1 drop doTERRA cinnamon essential oil (or 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon)
Sprinkle of cinnamon

Method:

Blend all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.

Place liquid in a small pot and warm over low heat until hot but not boiling.

Pour the liquid into a mug or heat-safe jar and sprinkle with cinnamon to taste. Sip and enjoy!
