You can’t open a magazine, walk through a store, or scroll Instagram these days without seeing something about turmeric. It truly has come out of nowhere and now is the most obsessed over spice in the history of spices. Okay maybe not, but you know what I mean.
The obsession over turmeric is for good reason though. It’s basically like a superhero spice for all things anti-inflammatory. Plus it’s relatively cheap, easily attainable (anyone in need of turmeric should just go to your local Marshall’s or TJMaxx – they have TONS there in huge bags/containers), and it’s pretty tasty. I am a big fan of ginger and since they fall in the same family, ginger and turmeric both share an earthy, slightly spicy taste.
My body is constantly in motion – or at least it feels like that some days – between running and momming. So I’ve been trying to increase my turmeric intake to help keep inflammation and stiffness at bay. One way I’ve been enjoying turmeric is by making Golden Milk Lattes!
A delicious, frothy, soothing treat I love making a GML right after I get L&H down for nap. It’s warm and cozy, tastes great, and ultimately gives me a perk of energy from the slight spicy flavor!
I make large batches of a GML mix and store it in an airtight container. Then whenever I want to have one – I mix two tablespoons with some milk (or water) and froth away. My frother is from Amazon. I’m still perfecting my frothing technique. I can’t wait until the day when my cup is overflowing with beautiful, golden colored, fluffy foam. But perfect foam or not, I still enjoy my GML!
Note: I haven’t tried these iced yet – but am curious to! If anyone does before me, please comment below and let me know what you think!
