The Lazy Tulip Golden Milk Latte
Steamed Coconut Milk with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, pepper, coconut oil and maple syrup. Have it “Dirty” with a double shot of Planet Bean’s Stellar espresso!
I have been reading about the benefits of Golden Milk so today we decided to give one of these a try. Not only is it super healthy but it’s super delicious! Golden Milk is a great, tasty and incredibly healthy drink and the benefits are outstanding!
The main ingredient in this recipe is turmeric. It contains curcumin, polyphenols identified as the main active ingredient that is present in more than 150 potential therapeutic activities, and includes antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. Combined with pepper, the benefits of curcumin significantly increase.
With the addition of black pepper in dishes seasoned with turmeric the bioavailability of curcumin increases by about 1000 times, and it is credited to the peppers. This means that by mixing turmeric and pepper together, the body absorption of the turmeric increases up to 2000 percent.
When turmeric and ginger are mixed with coconut oil, they become more readily absorbed by the body (one of the important features of healthy saturated fats).
We at the Lazy Tulip have decided to try it Dirty by adding a double shot of espresso to it resulting in an unbelievably delightful beverage sure to give you that boost of energy to help you get through this Barrie winter!
