How to Make the Delicious and Healing Golden Milk

What I love about Golden Milk is how incredibly comforting it is, while still being so healthy. The mix of spices only makes it more delicious and even better for you, so I make a big enough batch of it that I can enjoy it for a few days every week. As it’s still cold this time of the year , it’s perfect to cozy up to this delicious concoction of various spices and a plant-based milk of your choice.

I tried Golden Milk for the first time when I was on a yoga retreat in Kaua’i and I immediately loved it. Though we only used a combination of turmeric and almond milk while we were on the retreat, I enjoy adding even more healthy spices whenever I make it at home.

Turmeric, the key ingredient in this drink, is a very healthy spice that’s been proven to have incredibly anti-inflammatory effects on the body. I sprinkle it on tofu scrambles, vegetables, rice, and I use a heaping tablespoon of it to make this drink. If you’ve never tried turmeric before, now’s the time to add it to your meals (and drinks!). It can be spicy, so a little bit typically goes a long way. But thanks to its long list of health benefits, your body will thank you for having it. Turmeric is particularly helpful if you have any aches or pains, or are currently trying to heal from an auto-immune disorder.

I really do love how soothing and healing golden milk is, especially when it’s cold outside or when you feel like you need some extra love and comfort. I recommend using a plant-based milk, but other than that, feel free to adjust the recipe to your liking. Enjoy!
