Golden milk is easy to make. Mix one cup of almond or coconut milk with a teaspoon of organic coconut oil and 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric paste or powder. Some recipes recommend adding varying amounts of black pepper to help mix the spice into the milk. Others suggest adding some ginger to boost anti-inflammatory properties. Warm it up and add a little honey or cinnamon to improve the flavor, as turmeric is somewhat bitter. This recipe makes a nutritious and delicious bedtime beverage Dallas hourly caregivers can easily prepare to boost their senior loved one’s health.
