Golden Milk

Golden Milk

Golden milk (aka turmeric milk) is at the top of the list when it comes to healthy beverages.
A mix of turmeric and dairy-free milk along with cinnamon, maple syrup, and a pinch of black pepper. Naturally sweetened, incredibly healthy, and so very delicious. Ready in just 5 minutes.
In addition to soothing me to sleep, golden milk has also helped me appease my nightly sweet cravings before.
Lately, I’ve been replacing my evening sweet treat (usually a piece of dark chocolate with sea salt) with a steaming cup of Golden Milk and find myself feeling completely satisfied.

Golden Milk

Golden milk owes its name to the bright yellow colour of curcumin, the bioactive compound in turmeric that has also a reputation as a silver bullet for a wide range of health issues.
In traditional medicine turmeric has been used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties.
To be honest golden milk is so delicious you'll forget it's so healthy.
With the freezing temperatures outside, there’s nothing better than a healthy, healing cup of Golden Milk to start your day or right before bed.
Thank me later!
