What is a Golden Latte (Turmeric Milk)?
If you have never had a golden latte before, you need to try it! I have been treating myself to it every single night for the past couple of weeks and I love it.
A Golden Latte (Turmeric Milk) is basically milk that is simmered with turmeric, which gives the drink its characteristic gold color. Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, which makes it a very beneficial spice to consume.
Other warm aromatic spices, such as cinnamon, ginger and black pepper (which improves absorption of curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric) are added for flavor and for even more health benefits. I also like to add a bit of honey for a touch of sweetness.
