Golden Milk Recipe

Golden Milk is a great way to get your daily dose of turmeric. Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric, is only really available to the body, and most well-absorbed when it is combined with a fat and a pepper (black or spicy). The peperine compound in the pepper increases the effectiveness of curcumin while fats in the milk helps it support your brain.

Optional: 1/4 tsp vanilla, ground ginger/cardamom/cinnamon (choose your favorite)

1 tsp (or to taste) of sweetener that you enjoy: honey, maple syrup, agave nectar.  Or you can throw in a couple drops of liquid stevia

First things first: I love chocolate. I love kale. And I consume them both regularly, but generally not at the same time (although, ask me about my chocolate, berry & kale smoothie!) I also love helping people find easy ways make their body, mind, and life better while also making eco-friendly choices that support the health of our planet.
