Thirsty Thursday: Golden Milk

This new drink on our menu is a fun healthy way to enjoy a glass of milk. We are always trying to think of ways to sneak in more super foods, herbs and spices into our diets and this drink does the trick. 

The rockstar in this drink is the turmeric. Turmeric is full of amazing health benefits and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Health Benefits include the reduction of joint pain, digestive aid, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial, cancer killing, anti-depressent, liver detox, wound healing, and blood sugar balance.

The next health boosting herb in this milk is ginger.  Ginger is great for stomach discomfort, reduces inflammation, improves asthma, increases blood circulation, and boosts the immune system. It also relieves stress, helps prevent and reduce cough and cold, and helps aid in weight loss. 

Cinnamon is a great spice to add in to your daily diet. Cinnamon can lower cholesterol, help balance blood sugar levels, protect against heart disease, help reduce pain and inflammation, and increase immunity.

Who new drinking a nice cup of warm milk could have so many health benefits... Enjoy!

1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs grade B maple syrup

Place all ingredients in a pot and heat to desired temperature stirring constantly.

Yours in Health & Happiness,

Lisa and Nichole
