If you are looking for a golden milk recipe you are in the right place. Here we tell you the ingredients that golden milk needs and how to prepare it.
I’ve been obsessed with golden milk lately so I thought it was time to share my secret recipe with you.
If you haven’t tried (or haven’t heard) of golden milk yet, wow you’re missing out on something amazing. It is a super creamy warm drink that is loaded with nutrients and health benefits. It really is the perfect addition to a fall or winter afternoon.
I never really imagined that something so yummy could be healthy at the same time.
What is golden milk?
I do not want to expand on this point because I have a post in which I tell you EVERYTHING about what golden milk is, but basically it is a traditional drink from India that has its main connections with Ayurveda.
It is a mixture of warm milk, usually coconut milk with ground turmeric. Some add ginger to it and others modify coconut milk for traditional milk and a little coconut oil.
Golden milk ingredients
Well, we know that golden milk is loaded with benefits so now is the time to prepare it. For that you need the following ingredients:
- Coconut milk
- Ground turmeric
- Coconut oil
- Optional: Honey, coconut sugar, maple or agave syrup
In its most basic state, golden milk only needs coconut milk and turmeric but I like to add some extra ingredients and make the more complete version when I have time.
Coconut oil makes it so much creamier. Pepper allows the benefits of turmeric to be absorbed much better (it is really a pinch), ginger and cinnamon not only add a little flavor but also provide their wonderful benefits and the sweetener is totally optional but helps make it that much more enjoyable.
Why make golden milk
- Because it is creamy
- Perfectly balanced
It has antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, and really is perfect for when you want a drink that fills your heart and makes you feel on top of the world.
