Golden Milk

img_6511Golden milk actually uses milk, no it’s not another item claiming to be the life-giving elixir that is milk, as in from a mammal. (This is coming from a wife of a dairy farmer). Golden milk has been used for 100s of years as nourishing drink that reduces inflammation in the body and boosts your immune response. It uses milk, turmeric (raw or a paste), cinnamon, ginger and black pepper. I added a pinch of cardamom and sweetener to make this a treat even my kiddos would love. The warm hue of the milk is comforting, and you really can’t taste turmeric, so think of this as a spicy and sweet warmed up milk. Perfect on this rainy day or as healthy and satisfying after dinner drink.
