Golden milk

This ayurvedic beverage is touted for its healing, anti-inflammatory properties thanks to curcumin found in turmeric.

Turmeric has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Coconut oil makes the turmeric more available for our bodies to absorb because it is fat-soluble. 

Black pepper also helps the absorption of curcumin by our body.

Prep time




  • 1 cup (250 ml) of almond milk

  • 1 tsp turmeric powder

  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder

  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil

  • A sprinkle of black pepper

  • Maple syrup to taste


  • Place all spices in a saucepan with a little bit of almond milk on medium heat. Mix with a spoon and add the rest of the almond milk when the spices are starting to combine with the almond milk.
  • Let the mixture simmer for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the coconut oil.
  • Turn off heat, and allow the mixture to cool to a warm drinkable temperature.
  • Add maple syrup to taste. And « voilà »! Serve warm.


  • Warning ⚠️ : turmeric stains a lot (on clothes and also on cookware, cups…) so you probably shouldn’t be wearing your favorite clothes while making your golden milk nor should you use your best white China.
