“Spices such as cayenne, turmeric, black pepper, cinnamon and ginger can help us feel warmer at this time of year, as they improve circulation. You can use these spices in your everyday cooking, but a golden latte is a delicious way to get your daily dose.Here’s my preferred recipe – coconut milk and various nut milks also taste good, but please note that rice milk is too thin for this recipe.”GOLDEN LATTE
