If you haven’t already heard the buzz about Golden Milk, also known as a Turmeric Latte, then let me fill you in… There’s nothing like a warm drink by the fire, and this one will keep your immune system strong and gut healthy too! Golden Milk is an anti-inflammatory drink with ancient roots. In Okinawa, Japan, this drink is a tradition enjoyed daily! Turmeric also supports healthy brain and joint function too! Adding black pepper and ginger to your Golden Milk adds to the flavour but also helps make the beneficial elements of turmeric more bio-available. It can be made with any type of milk but coconut milk is especially tasty:
