If you’ve been trying to ditch caffeine, this golden milk recipe is a great alternative. It makes starting off your day easy and yummy!
Golden Milk is all the rage right now – and for good reason! It’s bursting with health benefits, and is great for fighting inflammation! For an extra boost of gut repairing properties, I even added collagen into the mix!
The turmeric in this recipe not only gives the milk its golden color, but it’s active chemical, curcumin, is a potent antioxidant praised for it’s ability to reduce the inflammation and pain of autoimmunity or chronic inflammation! It is absorbed best when consumed with some fat (found in the coconut oil) and black pepper. By consuming it in a beverage like golden milk, you get local effects in the gut resulting in even more gut healing than just curcumin supplements alone!
The added collagen can help prevent leaky gut, keep hair, nails and skin healthy, and support bones and joints!
Depending on where you are in your healing, feel free to add a little sweetener as tolerated.
