Turmeric Milk (Golden Milk)

For those of you who don’t follow me on any of my social media accounts (which you really should be…), I’ve been under the weather the past few days. Today, being the third full day of me being sick, it got me thinking about my health.

Now I’ll admit, I’m not much of a health enthusiast, but there are times where I try my best to put what is best in my body. So that got me thinking a little more. I want to start incorporating healthier food habits into my regular habits. So I decided to make Golden Milk also known as Turmeric Milk.

This drink can be described as a more robust Chai Tea Latte, with the flavor of deeper spices.

So if you like Chai Tea Latte’s, then this is a drink for you!
