Have you heard of “Golden Milk”? It is a delicious blend of turmeric and saffron. This drink is soothing and packed of vitamins and minerals.
Turmeric is what is going to give this drink the vibrant golden yellow color. Turmeric is said to have health benefits such as weight loss, joint pain, and teeth whitening. Not only packed with health benefits but it has a unique flavor. With an earthy and bitter bite, it is a good balance to the Saffron.
Saffron has a sweet flavor, similar to honey, but a bitter bite at the same time. Saffron is also full of health benefits, like boosting your antioxidants. To help boost your mood and help you feel better it’s no wonder why so many make this tasty drink!
This drink is great for any time of day, I prefer at the end of a long day to help me relax. Powering my body with vitamins and nutritions benefits while my body recovers from any daily task.
