Foamy Golden Milk

The best way to enjoy turmeric is with black pepper, since it increases the spice’s anti-inflammatory compound curcumin. Fat is necessary for better absorption, but you don’t have to go crazy: A cup of coconut, cashew, or almond milk for this latte has more than enough to do the trick.
