Golden Milk

This is a hot, soothing, aromatic, delicious, winter drink flavored with turmeric. The recipe is based on one from the Minimalist Baker, a terrific website that specializes in delicious, uncomplicated recipes.


  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or half almond milk and half light coconut milk.
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp ground turmeric or a one-inch piece of turmeric, unpeeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger, or ½-inch piece of gingerroot, unpeeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick or 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper or 1 tsp whole black peppercorns
  • 1-3 tsp honey or maple syrup (optional)


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan.
  2. Whisk to combine and heat over medium heat until hot but not boiling – about 4 minutes – whisking frequently.
  3. Strain into mugs or bowls.
  4. Curl up on your couch and enjoy


If you find the golden milk to be too rich or thick for you, add a little hot water and stir.
