If you haven’t tried golden milk, it’s time to add it to your list of nourishing drinks. It's the drink you make if you're feeling exhausted, poorly, low or just in need of a hug in a mug. It contains many powerful spices, particularly turmeric and ginger, and is guaranteed to warm you up and make you feel cared for. Play around with the quantites to get the taste profile you like (e.g. more or less sweetener, vanilla etc). Enjoy warm, cooled over ice or even as the base for a banana smoothie.

1 heaped tsp ginger
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
Big spoonful of honey or maple syrup (to taste)
Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan.

Pour into your favourite teacup of mug.
