Golden Milk

For iced coffee lovers, consider this a healthier cousin. Dairy-free and loaded with antioxidants from turmeric, there's not much golden milk can't do. You can enjoy this hot (if so, add a tablespoon of coconut oil per serving for added health benefits) or cold, it's up to you. Since it's summer, we prefer this cold. Once you fall in love with golden milk, take the next step and whip up some turmeric paste and add it to smoothies, curries, rice and, of course, to make golden milk.
Servings 2


  • 2 cups homemade coconut or almond milk if possible
  • 1 3-inch cinnamon stick
  • 1 1-inch piece ginger, unpeeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons honey
  • 8 black peppercorns
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • Optional garnish ground cinnamon


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat the nut milk of choice and add the cinnamon stick, sliced ginger, honey, peppercorns and turmeric and stir well to combine.
  2. Let the ingredients steep and simmer for 5-7 minutes. Do not let it come to a boil. Remove from the heat, let cool a bit and then, using a fine-mesh sieve strain the solids from the golden milk.
  3. Pour the golden milk into a glass container and place in the refrigerator to chill thoroughly.
  4. When ready to serve, pour golden milk in a glass (ice is optional), sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon, if desired, and sip your stress away. Repeat often, share with friends and enjoy.
