Have you ever tried a Golden Latte before?
Besides being a beautiful shade of yellow, this latte is delicious and full of superpower spices! It takes its colour from turmeric, and you’ll also add in some cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom to boost the flavour even further.
Turmeric has been shown to have a vast amount of health benefits. For example, it has anti-inflammatory benefits, could decrease cancer risk, and it is supportive of our detoxification system. In addition, it has the potential to help improve our cognitive function, our kidney function, and to help maintain our blood sugar balance.
You don’t need a lot of turmeric to see the health benefits! It’s been reported that as little as half a teaspoon a day can give positive effects.
I like drinking golden lattes in the evening before bed; the spice blend is calming, soothing, and is a great way to transition towards sleep!
