For years, we’ve been hearing that milk “does a body good,” and there’s no denying that. Between aiding in our bone, heart and mental health, milk alone possesses a long list of benefits for our well-being and betterment. But there’s a fresh, new trend taking over that we’re totally behind because it blends our love for milk with the amazing super spice, turmeric.

Golden Milk, also known as turmeric milk or “haldi ka doodh,” has been earning its spot among health-conscious drinks because of its incredible benefits — and golden yellow color, worthy of Instagram.

As an effective South Asian remedy with a sundry of natural anti-inflammatory properties, it’s been said golden milk helps in digestion, controls blood sugars and supports healthy cholesterol levels. Not to mention, thanks to the miraculous blend of milk and turmeric, it has the power to relax the nervous system and detoxify the liver to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Traditionally it’s served as a hot drink and with whole milk, but with foodies catching on to its magic and benefits, there are a slew of innovative recipes utilizing the milk mix with fresh ingredients that are as good as gold.
