My Verdict On The Popular Iced Golden Milk Turmeric Latte People Are Raving About

iced golden milk turmeric latte

So I'm definitely late on the iced golden milk latte trend, but I'm here now and ready to give you my thoughts. When I embarked on this little journey, I wanted to find a recipe that was super simple, but still had all the key ingredients. Luckily, I stumbled across this recipe by Davida at The Healthy Maven

Her recipe is really easy to follow along with and uses 6 ingredients (I didn't include water), most of which, you probably have in your cabinet. Before I go into my verdict, below I'll quickly run through some of the benefits from drinking golden milk. 

Benefits From Drinking Golden Milk

Turmeric
Turmeric, the key ingredient, provides anti-inflammatory effects from the substance, Curcumin and is also an antioxidant. This drink would be great to try for those with joint pain to supplement treatments. 

Ginger
Ginger has been used to treat nausea and many claim it's effective at treating morning sickness and motion sickness. Like turmeric, ginger is commonly used to relieve muscle and joint pain. My mom makes a nice cup of tea with ginger to help her joint pain during the winter time. 

Black Pepper
Black pepper has so many benefits you may not be aware of including improving digestion and relieving coughs. All you need is pinch of black pepper to make this golden milk latte, but it's a must for this recipe. Curcumin alone has a difficult time absorbing into the bloodstream, but when black pepper is added, absorption increases as well as the health benefits.  


My Verdict
I was super hesitant to taste it, but as I was mixing the ingredients together, it had a nice warm smell. I was pleasantly surprised that it tastes like a chai latte without all the sugar and caffeine! This is perfect since I'm trying to cut down on coffee for the third time (hopefully third time is a charm)! I wish it was a tad bit sweeter to no one's surprise since I have a major sweet tooth. I've made this lovely recipe several times now and soon I'll try to make a hot version.
