Golden milk is one of my favorite morning pick-me-ups (since I gave up coffee for Lent this year!), and adding a quality collagen gives me the beauty boost that I need to keep ‘glowing’ all day long. Follow this easy recipe for the tastiest golden milk you’ve ever had, with beauty benefits to boot!

The ultimate immunity elixir- with a big-time beauty boost! 🌟

Turmeric is a brightly-colored golden spice that has been used for thousands of years in India.

Highly regarded for its medicinal properties, turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory that can boost immunity, ward off disease, and even boost your energy & mood.1

The secret is turmeric’s naturally-occurring ‘curcuminoids’, which block a molecule called NF-kB and dramatically reduce inflammation.

Some turmeric studies even show that turmeric can reduce inflammation as effectively as prescription-grade anti-inflammatory drugs!2

That being the case, and given how important immunity is these days, (don’t forget to eat plenty of those healthy green vegetables!) a turmeric boost is the perfect way to supercharge your day without taking multiple stops to the coffee machine…

In addition to the immunity and inflammation-fighting benefits, turmeric also provides a pleasant, jitter-free natural energy boost.

There is definitely ‘twenty four karat magic in the air’ whenever I start my morning with this Aquarius-powered turmeric latte.

Without further ado, here is our recipe for how to make a turmeric latte:

Golden Milk Latte Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk (almond, oat, coconut, or dairy)
  • 1 tbsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 scoop Aquarius Collagen Beauty Booster (unfavored)
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1-2 tbsp. maple syrup to sweeten (stevia or monkfruit for a lower-calorie option)
  • 2-3 grinds fresh black pepper
  • dash vanilla extract (I used ‘Madagascar Vanilla’ – aka my latest obession)
  • cinnamon stick to garnish

Directions:

Combine ingredients in a pot over stove-top (medium heat) for 6-10 minutes until near boiling.

Let cool for 2-3 minutes before serving.

Top with sprinkle of cinnamon and black pepper, and enjoy!

Did You Know: Black pepper may seem like an odd inclusion in a cafe-style beverage, but it adds depth of flavor to this golden milk latte recipe while serving a functional purpose of increasing the absorption of the valuable nutrients in your elixir.

And lastly- if you are serious about reducing inflammation, you may want to seriously consider starting with combatting gut inflammation.

Our newest Libra Probiotic for Women contains a new class of gut health boosters called flavobiotics – a citrus-derived compound that has been clinically-proven to reduce gut inflammation3. (More on flavobiotics here.)
