minty lemongrass milk is a soothing drink for your throat. Learn how to make lemongrass ginger turmeric milk.

 

To make minty lemongrass milk, combine 2 cups of water, lemongrass stalks, mint leaves and sugar, mix well and boil. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes till the aroma is released and the water is reduced to half. Add the ginger and chai masala, mix well and boil on a slow flame for 1 minute. Add the milk, bring to a boil and simmer on a slow flame for 4 to 5 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Add the turmeric powder, mix well and boil on a slow flame for 1 minute. Remove from the flame and strain using a strainer. Pour into 2 individual glasses and serve hot.

A hot glass of lemongrass milk with mint can be very comforting indeed, especially when it is pepped up with aromatic spices. Here is a hot cuppa that will soothe your senses and rejuvenate you when a bad cold saps your energy.

All the ingredients in this recipe are wisely chosen. While some prefer lemongrass tea without milk, some find a hot glass of lemongrass milk for cold more soothing and satiating. Lemongrass and mint leaves add vitamin C to this pleasing beverage, helping to relieve cold and cough by improving immunity levels.


Turmeric powder added to this lemongrass ginger turmeric milk also works wonders by protecting your body from infections. It exhibits its antibacterial and antiseptic properties. 

Ginger has a unique sharp flavour and its bioactive compound ‘gingerol’ also has antimicrobial properties. We have strained the ginger in this lemongrass milk for cold, but if you like the mouthfeel and flavour you can avoid the straining and chew on it. 

Tips for minty lemongrass milk. 1. You can also finely chop the mint leaves and avoid straining and enjoy chewing them. 2. The sugar in the recipe has been used in minimal quantity and also mentioned as optional. It is best avoided, since it is a source of food for microorganisms.
