Goji Golden Milk

 

What’s better than golden milk? GOJI golden milk! My goodness, there are SO many recipes available now for golden milk. And is it any wonder? This stuff is pretty magical. Turmeric, that is! It’s got such a bounty of health benefits, not the least of which is its amazing anti-inflammatory properties. It is also proven to help with rheumatoid arthritis. Check out my friend, Dr. Greger’s, video on this topic.  Turmeric also helps with sleep, and guess what? So do goji berries, so this is really a kicked up golden milk! 

For a fantastic article that covers, in-depth, the health benefits of goji berries, check out Goji Berry Benefits 101 – Everything You Need to Know.

You can use any plant-based milk you prefer for this golden milk. I used a full fat coconut milk for an extra creamy, dreamy delight. But for a lighter version, simply use rice milk, soy milk or almond milk. Besides all of its health benefits, this drink just TASTES GOOD! And it’s perfect for enjoying during these cold, snowy months, too.

Healthy trails,
