Golden Milk

Nutritiously rich. Heartwarmingly coloured. Packed with a well-rounded blend of spices. Golden Milk is the drink to enjoy all winter long. Great for boosting your immune system and fighting off nasty colds. I've used regular cows milk in my recipe but you can substitute your milk of choice e.g. goats, almond, soya, rice....
