Golden Milk | Cold Remedy

One of my favourite natural ways to cope with cold is drinking turmeric milk, also known as Golden Milk. This is a lovely drink made out of various spices and packed with nutrients and vitamins.

This drink is very easy to make and adjust to your taste preferences, but this time I decided to try out the new pre-made golden milk spice mix that I got from Wholefoods Market in London. This is much faster and easier to make than the one from scratch, and I love the spice combination of Nature’s Harvest Turmeric Latte Mix.

It contains only 7 ingredients – turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, chilli, vanilla and black pepper, – all being wonderful spices that help your body boost its healing process during a cold. Turmeric is better consumed with added spices, as it turns out that turmeric has a very low bio-availability when consumed by itself, meaning that our bodies have a hard time absorbing its wonderful health benefits. This Turmeric Latte Mix has a perfect combination of spices, which all contribute to a good absorption of turmeric itself, and add an extra boost with the benefits of each spice on its own.

You can use any kind of milk of your choice to make your own Golden Milk. I prefer using coconut milk. Just warm 1 cup of milk on the stove (or in the microwave), add half a teaspoon of Turmeric Latte mix and a teaspoon of honey. Don’t let the drink boil!

And that’s it! This is a great cold remedy and a wonderful drink to enjoy at any other time!
