Turmeric lattes are definitely popping up on menus everywhere, so I decide to try and make one at home! This latte is perfect to drink at night when you’re all cozy at home on the couch. Reminds me of a delicious chai latte, and it doesn’t have caffeine.
Golden Milk is a common drink in India that has been around for thousands of years. Turmeric is popular for many reasons but especially for its known anti-inflammatory properties. I remember a few years ago my mother started drinking golden milk every day to aid in her arthritis. She swore she noticed a difference in her joints, especially her hands. I’m always trying to eat more anti-inflammatory foods, because I know we are constantly consuming INflammatory foods, like sugar and dairy for example. Anti-inflammatory foods are great for gut health and your immune system. Remember food is medicine, and yes food can effect your health, your mood, your energy, and your entire day! Check out this recipe below to try it yourself!

1 Tablespoon honey
