How to make milk tea? Easy golden milk recipe

The best part is that making golden milk is super easy, especially if you make a ‘golden paste’ ahead of time and keep it on hand for whenever you’re craving some. This recipe is not only tremendously good for you, it’s also deliciously creamy and fantastic. The original recipe uses whole milk, but you can opt for coconut milk. And it may seem strange that the recipe calls for black pepper, but don’t skip this ingredient. Pepper is the secret to unlocking turmeric’s wide healthy benefits as it enhances curcumin’s bio-availability by a factor of 20! Curcumin is a naturally occurring chemical compound that is found in turmeric. The two words are sometimes used interchangeably, but technically the difference between the two is that curcumin is a chemical contained within turmeric.
