I am a HUGE coffee guy. I worked as a barista on and off for the last few years and can get down with a delicious espresso drink. However, I DO NOT metabolize caffeine well. Any amount of caffeine, whether it be from decaf coffee or black tea sends me into cold sweats. This is really unfortunate, as I truly do enjoy the taste and aroma of coffee.
So Im forced to be creative and find alternative beverages. My favorite, without a doubt, is Golden Milk. It sounds weird, I know, but Golden Milk is a delicious drink, originating in India that combines anti-inflammatory spices with creamy milk and just a touch of sweetness, without the harsh caffeine. Perfect for any time of day, this recipe for iced golden milk latte is sure to become a summer favorite.
