5 cool turmeric drinks for good immunity in summer
Spices are at the heart of Indian cuisine, but one spice that has put India on the world map is turmeric (haldi). Turmeric milk has become famous as turmeric latte across the world and we have woken up to the various benefits the spice offers. Turmeric, also known as the “golden spice”, has been touted as one of the most beneficial foods, which not only provides its immunity boosting properties but also adds color and taste to food. The nutty flavor with an underlying earthy touch makes our food taste better. But if you want to continue enjoying the benefits of turmeric drinks in the summer, hot “haldi wala doodh” is not the only option.
You can make refreshing, hydrating and stimulating turmeric drinks yourself that are bursting with flavor. Be as generous with the amount of turmeric as your palate can afford.
