GOLDEN MIRACLE MILK


You might not think this humble spice is all that exciting but turmeric - and in particular, turmeric milk - is an amazing, anti-inflammatory detox drink with a world of health benefits!

Turmeric milk is often used to ward off the winter flu and has even been called a ‘natural aspirin’ due to its amazing ability to relieve the pain and swelling caused by headaches or injuries.

It's even said that turmeric milk helps to fight free radicals that damage the skin and make it lose its elasticity.  Hooray!

Now that winter’s here, you need to try at least one of these recipes!  There’s nothing better than snuggling up on the couch with a blanket, your fave tv series and little mug of this miracle milk. The perfect drink before falling into a deep, restful sleep!
