Golden milk, AKA amazingness in a mug. But really, what is it? It, my friends, is made up of the powerful spice turmeric, dates and herbs. It's an ancient tonic used in Ayurvedic practices and considered the holly grail when it comes to internal health. It's one of my favorite drinks to make at home, usually in the evenings.
If you're wondering how this simple ingredient drink could be so good for you, let me explain in one word, TURMERIC. Turmeric is a potent anti- -inflammatory that exhibits over 150 potentially therapeutic activities, including antimicrobial activity as well as potent anti-cancer properties.
