Turmeric is having a major moment right now. I first was introduced to this it-spice when I gave JRINK’s Clean Me Up II a whirl. Turmeric has a bitter taste but for me when it’s paired with other flavors, it balances out very well. In addition to being the main spice in curry and gave curry its wonderfully vibrant color (like in my curry-in-a-hurry recipe), turmeric is a nutrition rockstar. It contains curcumin, which is packed with antioxidants and is anti-inflammatory. Just what I need after a week-long comfort food fest.
Last summer I tried to cut out caffeine after 3p.m. and put turmeric into a homemade spicy lemonade that I sipped at night instead of reaching for a Diet Coke. Recently though I kept seeing golden milk pop up everywhere and decided to try it out. Guys, golden milk is where it’s at. And iced golden milk is even better. Be prepared to break up with your morning latte.
