The golden milk is best consumed while it’s still warm. You can always spice it up more by adding a dash of freshly ground black pepper or cardamom when you are warming up the milk. For a bit of decadence, mix in a 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of virgin coconut oil right before drinking. I used maple syrup to sweeten the golden milk, but feel free to use whatever sweetener you prefer.

Instructions

  1. Add the almond milk, turmeric, cinnamon and ginger slices into a saucepan. Stir to combine the ingredients. Heat the milk on low and bring to a low simmer. This will take about 5 minutes.
  2. Once the milk bubbles in the center, continue to let it simmer for another 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from heat.
  3. Using a mesh sieve, strain out the solids over a measuring cup with a spout. This will make it easier for you to pour the golden milk into cups.
  4. Pour the golden milk into 2 cups. Drink while the milk is still warm. Read the notes above for spice variations.
