Are you ready to jump on the “Golden Milk” latte bandwagon? Turmeric is an orange root that looks like a bit like a potato bug. It doesn’t taste great on its own but if you combine it with other spices, not only can you reap the health benefits, but it actually tastes amazing! Its active ingredient is Curcumin, which is a phytochemical responsible for keeping the immune system from glitching. By modifying the immune response or the functioning of the immune system to either stimulate antibody formation or inhibit the activity of white blood cells, turmeric helps the body protect itself against autoimmune issues – often caused by stress. Ready to try it in a warm, latte?
If you are NOT using fresh ingredients: Heat up the milk first on high heat and wait until it is hot but do not let it boil. Remove from the heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir it up - taste it and adjust according to your preference!
If you are using FRESH tumeric and ginger: Add all the ingredients including milk into a blender or food-processor and blend until smooth. Heat up in a small pot but don’t boil. Strain out any bits of ginger or tumeric with a fine mesh strainer.
