We spend a lot of time talking about our delicious cold-pressed juices… but what about our hot drinks? While summer is definitely on its way, there are still a few months standing between us and those hot, smoothie sipping days. So how do you keep warm and healthy between now and then? Two words: golden milk.
What is golden milk? Traditionally it is a beverage originating in India made with turmeric, coconut milk/ oil, and ginger. In our golden milk we also add a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, maple syrup, and your choice of almond or coconut milk- making it a tasty caffeine-free drink.
- The benefits of golden milk start with the turmeric. This distinctive orange root has been used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial benefits. This makes turmeric a very effective tool against flu and cold symptoms, headaches, and even fight cancer. Turmeric has also been linked to a quickening of the metabolism, helping with weight loss
- The combination of ginger and turmeric is a powerful kickstart for your digestive system. The turmeric fights bloating and indigestion while ginger fights nausea and stomachaches.
- Raw coconut oil not only gives this milk a filling, creamy texture, but also fills your body with healthy fats- helping you stay fuller longer. It also helps fight tooth decay and improves heart health by raising good cholesterol.
So next time you are looking for a tasty warm drink, ditch the coffee and opt for our delicious golden milk. You’ll be surprised by the benefits you feel, from relief from aches and pains to elimination of bloating. <3
