Looking for a new addition to your nightly chill-out routine? Winding down with a golden milk latte at the end of the day is a great way to de-stress and promote a good night's sleep.
Golden milk, made with the magical herb, turmeric is quickly becoming popular for its ani-inflammatory, anti-viral and antioxidant properties. The secret behind turmeric's superpowers is the compound, curcumin. Among its many claims to fame, curcumin is said to alleviate joint and muscle pain, boost the immune system, aid digestion and promote glowing, healthy skin. If you are spring cleaning your diet, this healthy treat is a great alternative to alcohol, should you be looking for ways to cut down on your vino intake.
See below for the recipe for this healthy concoction. Black pepper and the fat in coconut oil enable the body to absorb all of these magical benefits so make sure not to skimp out on these 2 important ingredients. Cheers!
