SPRINGFIELD, Mo KY3's Paul Adler visits with Pamela Hernandez of Thrive Personal Fitness to get instructions on this latte recipe.
Here's what Pamela told us:
Drink to your good health with this delicious hot beverage
Perhaps you've seen golden milk or a turmeric latte on the menu at your favorite coffee shop. Golden milk is a warm beverage made with turmeric, your choice of milk and a variety of other spices and ingredients. Turmeric is the star, giving the drink its golden color and its superfood status.
Turmeric is a power antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, making it a great addition to your muscle recovery routine. Turmeric has been used in traditional medicines for thousands of years. Traditional healers have used turmeric to treat everything from improved digestion to relieving arthritis pain. Modern medicine is acknowledging the power of turmeric and studying its potential role in treating heart disease, cancer and even depression.
While the research is still ongoing it won't hurt to take a preventative step by adding a little more turmeric to your diet.
Drinking golden milk is an easy and delicious way to take advantage of this superfood.
Here's a recipe from my friends at Amoda to make your own golden milk at home.
