So why not skip that early morning coffee and try this hot golden milk instead!

I love turmeric, it has a beautiful aroma and colour that can bring so many dishes to life. What is turmeric good for?

Turmeric is believed to have a whole range of health benefits because of its anti inflammatory effects.

And if there is a spice that is going to help with anything from joint pain to high cholesterol it’s worth a shot (or few) right?

Turmeric Golden Milk

Turmeric alone has a bitter taste which is why I have added vanilla and maple syrup to this recipe.

Cinnamon is always a good addition to milky hot drinks (hello Christmas) and works really nicely in this turmeric golden milk.

I like it sweet but you may not need to add the whole tbsp of maple syrup, just taste and add accordingly!

I wish I had taken some side on pictures of these mugs as they are so beautiful.

My friend gave them to me (she knows me so well) and they are from Habitat. This is them, if you’re interested!

They have some really beautiful tableware and ceramics and are a food photographers dream! I think I might do a blog post on my props and where I got them from. Let me know in the comments if you’d like that!
