I’m a big fan of turmeric and it’s anti-inflammatory properties, but not a big fan of the taste. I tried the golden milk recipes for a few weeks and just never enjoyed them. Then I switched to turmeric supplements, so I could get them down easier. A bit of a cheat, but at least I was getting my daily turmeric.
Today I found a great site called Paleo Gluten Free Eats with amazing healthy recipes. When I saw the Turmeric Latte recipe and realized I have most of the ingredients, I decided to give it a try. Let’s give the turmeric powder another chance. And WOW, am I glad I did!
Now I have this delicious recipe that I can make every day, and I most likely will. It tastes that good!
Take a look at these healthy ingredients. You’ll have to pinch yourself that you’re doing something good for your body each time you drink it.
