Golden Milk



2 cups nut milk or milk of choice (Coconut milk is often used) 

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

1 inch turmeric root (if you don’t have fresh you can increase powder up to ½-2 tsp to taste) 

½ tsp cinnamon powder 

2-3 black peppercorns 

1 clove 

1 whole cardamom, slightly broken 

2 Tbsp coconut oil or ghee 

1 Tbsp raw honey (or sweetener of choice) 

1 Tbsp ginger juice or ½ inch fresh ginger 

½ tsp pumpkin spice: OPTIONAL (not needed. I love the taste:-) or nutmeg & star anise are also fun ingredients to add)  


  • Double, triple or quadruple the recipe so you have enough to sip on for a few days.
  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring all of the ingredients except coconut oil or ghee and sweetener to a low simmer.
  • Stir well and lower the heat to a low-medium, cover and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes, depending on how strong you want the flavor of the spices.
  • The longer you simmer, the stronger the taste. 
  • Turn off the heat and add coconut oil or ghee (if using) as well as your sweetener.Strain into your cup.
  • Now you can savor every sip! Store extra in airtight container in refrigerator.
