With the changing season and big drop in temperature, now is the perfect time to add a delicious warm beverage to your diet. Golden Milk is a traditional Ayurvedic warming drink that helps fight colds and build immunity for overall health and wellness. This bright sunny beverage has a combination of warming spices such as cinnamon, cloves, ginger and turmeric.
Growing up in India, I remember my mom giving me Turmeric Milk when I was either injured or sick. She would simply mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder in ¼ cup of warm milk and hand it to me. It was like a shot or elixir that soothed and comforted me. That is just my experience, in my home, and I am sure there are people who have also enjoyed this delicious blend growing up. I rediscovered this delicious drink a few years ago and it has since been my favourite go to blend. Indian food is so rich in turmeric that in an average day people get enough of the anti-inflammatory properties of this golden root.
Golden Milk is an easy and delicious way to enjoy the many benefits of turmeric. For me it acts as a great drink before bed, it is like a dessert with benefits! Drinking Golden Milk has tons of benefits, I have listed a few below:
- Boosts immunity by improving liver function
