Spiced Golden Milk

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. 
Prep Time5 mins

Total Time15 mins


  • 2 1/2 cups (600ml) unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • a few slices of ginger
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons maple syrup, depending on your taste


  • 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.
  • Once the milk bubbles in the center, continue to let it simmer for another 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the saucepan from heat.
  • 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.
  • Pour the golden milk into 2 cups. Drink while the milk is still warm. Read the notes above for spice variations.
