Living my Life Golden...

Golden Milk is one of my favorite evening soothing beverages. This traditional Indian drink has amazing healthy benefits. Curcumin found in tumeric has anti-inflammatory properties. Along with the additional anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial benefits from the ginger and cinnamon. This is my personal recipe that can certainly be altered to suit your taste buds.

  • 1 1/2 cups light coconut milk (canned is best, but carton works too)

  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk (DIY or store-bought)

  • 1 1/2 tsp ground turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger (see notes for fresh*)

  • 1 whole cinnamon stick (or 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon // I prefer the stick!)

  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil (see notes for oil-free)

  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

  • Sweetener of choice (i.e. maple syrup, coconut sugar, or stevia to taste)


  • To a small saucepan, add coconut milk, almond milk, ground turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon stick, coconut oil, black pepper, and sweetener of choice (I usually add 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup // amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size).

  • Whisk to combine and warm over medium heat. Heat until hot to the touch but not boiling – about 4 minutes – whisking frequently.

  • Turn off heat and taste to adjust flavor. Add more sweetener to taste or more turmeric or ginger for intense spice + flavor.
