Golden Milk LatteSubmit a Recipe
If I’m going to make a drink at home, it has to be delicious, serve a few purposes, and it has to be easy. This recipe for a golden milk latte has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory qualities from the turmeric and ginger, creaminess from coconut milk, natural sweetness, and healthy fats. Black pepper adds a kick and increases the bioavailability of the healthful properties in turmeric. It’s a hearty drink for in between meals, a warm start to a day and a sweet caffeine-free treat at night. Basically, it checks all the boxes.
The best part of this recipe? You’re using all of the tea! Instead of simply composting the leftover steeped tea, this recipe uses a blender to thicken the drink and intensify the flavors. Hello, it’s me, your new favorite drink.
