Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric makes a delicious, nurturing latte when mixed with vanilla protein powder and coconut milk. Also called “golden milk,” this healing recipe is perfect whether you’re fighting off a summer cold or the mid-winter blahs.
In addition to the benefits of turmeric, coconut oil and coconut milk both contain lauric acid, which is a natural antibacterial and antifungal. Not only will this gorgeous golden drink make you feel warm and cozy, it will help strengthen your immune system. (For more great news about the health benefits of coconut oil, read this article.)
