Golden Milk (aka Turmeric Milk)


Watch the step-by-step video HERE.

I promise this will be my last turmeric post for a while but I just can’t stop using this super root ever since discovering it a few weeks back.

I just love its warm, earthy flavor and the nutritional benefits are amazing (anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-microbial, etc.).

This recipe is thousands of years old!  Not only is soothing and healing but it’s also great way to curb a sweet tooth and/or unwind from the day.
