Chai-onara! Tea you later! Kiss your chamomile goodbye and embrace a new nightcap. Turmeric is the superstar spice of the moment that wards off inflation, fights pain and arthritis, detoxes the blood, cleanses the liver, and provides a great immunity boost. And one of the most popular ways to enjoy these benefits is by the glassful. A drink called “golden milk” is rocking the Whole Foods world.
Simple to make and with an earthy, sweet and spicy taste like that of chai, golden milk is the ideal evening elixir you can feel good about drinking.
Here’s how to make it:
Simply combine 1 cup almond or coconut milk with 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, 1/4 teaspoon cardamom, a pinch of black pepper, and a teaspoon of honey. Whisk, strain, heat, and enjoy! Some recipes also recommend simmering the mixture pre-strain to lessen the bitter bite. You can also add a dash of cinnamon, use a frother to mimic a latte-like taste, or serve it cold over ice.
A metal-worthy winner!
