It’s fall, that time of year when I always want a warm drink in hand! Unfortunately, so many of the yummy pumpkin spice drinks are full of sugar and not what I want to be putting into my body on a regular basis. Enter Golden Milk. It’s creamy, it’s great warm or cold, and it’s full of spices that do a whole lot of good for your body.
Turmeric gives this drink the glowing, golden color and is a powerful anti-inflammatory spice.
Ginger adds a little spice and is great for supporting digestion.
Cinnamon is a powerhouse spice–it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, helps balance blood sugar and may decrease cholesterol.
Cardamom is an antioxidant and may also help your body detox.
I love drinking this in the afternoon when my energy tends to drag and I crave a little sweetness. So this fall, when you are tempted to reach for a sugary drink, try golden milk instead!
