Sleepytime Golden Turmeric Milk
Golden Turmeric Milk
Cashew nuts are a great source of magnesium so this is a perfect drink to have in the evening. Turmeric is renowned for being anti-inflammatory, and something we should incorporate into our diet as often as possible. Ginger is perfect for aiding digestion and cinnamon balances blood sugar. Bee pollen is a great way to add a little sweetness without adding a sweetener as well as providing a great source of vitamins and minerals and can help to support a good immune system. If desired you can add in a medjool date to the blending for a sweeter option (perfect in the evening after dinner, before bed, or anytime!) This one is great for the immune system too.
