Turmeric vanilla coffee
Usually Indian women use turmeric as a facial cleanser and exfoliant. My mom used to prepare turmeric milk when we had cold. Winter calls for a cold so wanted to try turmeric milk and hubby loves coffee so thought of adding a bit of ground coffee in the same milk and tried to convert this to a hot coffee drink, which would be perfect for the weather.
About the taste it tasted like caramel coffee bit salty and flavor of turmeric taste in vanilla coffee and after sipping this I could feel ease in breathing with my blocked nose.
