    Vegan Golden Milk

    No time to stand in line for your soy vanilla latte? Go one better for your health with a warm cup of golden milk. Golden milk is an Ayurvedic beverage made with turmeric powder. Curcumin, an active compound in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

    Piperine, a component of black pepper, increases curcumin’s availability in the body (so it can do its good work). That’s why there’s a pinch of pepper in this drink.
