Have you jumped on the golden milk trend yet? If not, this is the perfect — and aruguably, most delicious — way to do so.

For the unfamiliar, golden milk is a milk-based beverage enhanced with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, honey, and just a pinch of black pepper. It’s traditionally served warm, as a tea, but lately it’s been reinvented in practically every way you can imagine, from ice cream to hot cocoa to overnight oats. So why not a milkshake?

When you blend vanilla ice cream into the mix, this cool and extra-creamy take on golden milk is definitely a treat, but a treat that feels a little more virtuous, thanks to antioxidant-rich turmeric. Which means, of course, you can enjoy it as a mid-afternoon sip — but we wouldn’t judge you if you blended it up for breakfast instead.
