Fashion changes so fast that right when you adapt to a trend, you already have to start getting ready for the next one. Take matcha, for instance: the moment it became mainstream, it saw its leading role get threatened by turmeric. A spice, yes, and a lot more. Thanks to the curcumin it contains, and its anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, turmeric is rightfully considered to be a superfood. We shouldn’t be surprised then, when we see it as an ingredient in all the recipes recommended by wellness lovers, and it also shouldn’t surprise us that the hot drink of the moment is named after the golden color it gets from the turmeric inside it. Golden milk is originally an Ayurvedic drink, so the recipe is nothing newfangled at all, it is actually centuries old – as they say, fashions always come back, over and over. In addition to turmeric, golden milk contains black pepper, vanilla, ashwagandha, cardamom and dates. If you would like to try it, here are some places to find it in our 5 favorite cities.
