Anti-Inflammatory Iced Golden Milk Latte Recipe
When summer hits full throttle, the heat can easily make us swap our standard lattes for iced or blended versions.
If you’re a fan of golden milk lattes (or perhaps have yet to try one, but don’t want to whip up something hot this time of year) we have a refreshing treat for you.
Golden milk lattes originated from Ayurveda, the ancient medicine system of India. They have been concocted for thousands of years for their ingredients’ ability to help reduce inflammation, and even fight bacteria.
This version is filled with all of the anti-inflammatory spices you’ve heard about, including turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and more, with an added decadent twist of vanilla and almond extracts.
If this is your first time trying a golden milk latte, don’t worry about the black pepper - it’s virtually tasteless in this recipe, and is a necessary addition to help the other spices absorb fully into your system.
In this instance, “a latte a day keeps the doctor (and the heat) away,” could possibly be your new summer jam.
