By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

If you haven’t heard of golden milk, it’s about time to add it to your vocabulary.  The benefits of golden milk is in the powerful spice properties that this drinks possesses, particularly the turmeric and ginger. This drink recipe is heated with a small amount of healthy fat combined with black pepper which all supports the best bioavailability of the curcumin and its benefits. The blend contains many spices to enhance the antioxidant benefits as well as the taste, these of course are all optional and it works well with just ginger and turmeric for its healing and health properties. Enjoy this as a warming drink, as a cooled golden milk with ice or even used as a smoothie base with fruit such as a banana.  Enjoy!
