Look out, green juice: Golden milk is becoming the healthy drink du jour. Made with fresh turmeric, a root that's now more widely available in supermarkets, the creamy sip has an earthy-sweet flavor and anti-inflammatory benefits. This recipe comes from Emanne Desouky, co-owner of Super Juiced in Oakland. We've gone for store-bought almond milk as the base, but if you want to make your own, as Desouky does, omit the dates, vanilla, and salt here. She prefers to use organic ingredients. You can also serve the golden milk hot, with a little coconut oil on top.
