This warming, anti-inflammatory tonic is made with dairy-free milk, several warming spices, and a dash of honey or maple syrup.
Autoimmune issues signal underlying inflammation, so turning to foods that reduce that inflammation and support the immune system is crucial. Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and this warming milk is a tasty way to boost your health.
