Golden latte (sometimes called golden milk) is a milk tea brewed with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, licorice root, and black pepper. It tastes like a spicy chai and has a signature golden color. Some drink it for the health benefits, but I just like the flavor. My golden latte popsicles are simply frozen golden latte with a little more sugar than I would normally add to the drink. They are incredibly refreshing and a simple, healthful, summertime snack.
Every year at Mother’s Day, I work with Fair Trade USA to share the story of Fair Trade moms and what Fair Trade is doing to empower women around the world. This year, they shared the wonderful infographic below with me and I wanted to pass it on to you. The statistic about women and land ownership is very disturbing.
Fair Trade certification is an important mechanism for protecting and empowering women in agricultural communities around the world. In addition to freedom from harassment and other social requirements, Fair Trade certification ensures that women have a voice, a vote, and a leadership role in their communities. You can visit Fair Trade’s site to learn more about the women of Fair Trade.
In making my golden latte popsicles, I used the following Fair Trade Products:
