Teeccino Turmeric Golden 'Milk' from Nirvana

This may be the most delicious drink I’ve ever made.  I really didn’t expect pungent spices like turmeric and ginger simmered in almond milk with coconut cream and dates to turn into such a creamy, frothy beverage that is completely divine. Move over any dessert– this cup will hit the spot and leave you completely transported to nirvana.
