Golden Milk

Golden Milk with Cinnamon Stick

Golden milk is a nourishing, delicious, and anti-inflammatory Ayurvedic recipe that helps boost the immune system.

For each 2 cups of organic milk (almond, coconut, hemp, rice, full fat cow, or goat) – add the following:


½-1 tsp of organic turmeric powder
½-1 tsp of organic ginger powder
½ tsp of organic cinnamon powder {or use 1 half a stick}
⅛ tsp organic cardamom powder
1 tbsp of coconut oil or ghee {I alternate or sometimes add both}
1-2 tbsp dark local honey
A twist of cracked pepper

You can use all fresh ingredients if you wish – I just find it easier and cheaper to buy Organic Powders and whisk them together in the warm milk.


  1. Warm up milk on stove top in a sauce pain over medium heat for 10 minutes, but do not bring to a boil. Whisk every 1-2 mins.
  2. Add all of the powders and continue whisking. Strain the liquid into your cup, then add honey and coconut oil or ghee, and black pepper.
