‘Golden milk’ is a spiced tea that is made by infusing turmeric in almond or coconut milk. Turmeric has been consumed for medicinal purposes for thousands of years, and is recognized for its immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties. However, the beneficial compound curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body, so needs to be taken in conjunction with black pepper to increase bioavailability. This results in a savoury, earthy-tasting drink, that is similar to chai latte. Some people prefer to sweeten this infusion with honey, but personally I don’t find this necessary.
