This turmeric golden latte puts a fun twist on tea time.  The earthy tones of turmeric combined with the bright flavors of cinnamon, ginger and cardamom plus the hint of sweet maple syrup makes this one amazing night cap (without the alcohol of course!) Not to mention, this drink is full of flavor, anti-oxidants and nutrients that help keep inflammation at bay. Served hot or cold for a mid-morning boost or a gentle relaxing and soothing bedtime drink.

Mantra: I am healing my body from the inside out.
