Haus of Ojas Turmeric Latte

Turmeric lattes, also called “golden milk,” are the quintessential Ayurvedic drink. There are many versions of this beverage and I encourage to modify per your tastes.

For these reasons, vata doshas (or those with a vata imbalance) may find this drink particularly supportive.
