Golden milk, also called turmeric milk is a delicious, colorful and nourishing treat. Turmeric has an active ingredient (curcumin), which is a great anti-inflammatory agent. Curcumin is not easily absorbed by the body, but when combined with black pepper, its absorption greatly increases, so please don’t forget to add it. Drinking this warm drink in winter will help keep you healthier in the winter. Cheers!
