Happy February! This is the month of LOVE, Lurveeee. An opportunity to show your emotions to your loved ones, including friends and family but most importantly it’s a chance to give yourself some LOVE. Self- Love and Care that is. We hear that truly loving yourself means taking care of your mind and body. So sit back relax, cosy up to your sofa with a blanket a good book and a healthy hot drink: The Turmeric Latte.
You have probably been hearing about the benefits of turmeric for a while now and you might have been intrigued to try a cup of turmeric latte, the bonified staple drink of the health conscious. Its recipe is quite simple, actually. Take a batch of cold-pressed turmeric juice and mix it with almond, cashew or coconut milk. Before you switch your morning tea or coffee brew to the golden milk (as it’s also referred) we take a look at the benefits of turmeric.
