Ingredients

GOLDEN MILK MIX

  • 4 Tbsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp ground ginger (plus more to taste)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon (plus more to taste)
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper (plus more to taste)

ADD-INS (optional)

  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground clove

TO MAKE GOLDEN MILK

  • 1 heaped tsp Golden Milk Mix (recipe above)
  • 1-2 tsp sweetener of choice (we prefer maple syrup // or stevia to taste)
  • 2 tsp hot water
  • 1 cup dairy-free milk (we find light coconut milk to work best here)

Instructions

  1. To make mix, add all spices (add-ins optional) to a small jar and shake or stir thoroughly to combine. Will keep at room temperature up to 3 months. Or you can store it in the refrigerator if you prefer. Double the recipe if you intend to use it daily (it goes fast!).

  2. To make HOT golden milk, add 1 heaped tsp Golden Milk Mix, 1-2 tsp sweetener of choice (more or less to taste), and 2 tsp water to a small saucepan. Use a spoon to mix into a loose paste (you want as few clumps as possible). Then add dairy-free milk of choice and whisk to combine. Heat over medium heat until just hot/warm (not boiling). 

  3. To make ICED* golden milk, add 1 heaped tsp Golden Milk Mix, 1-2 tsp sweetener of choice (more or less to taste), and 2 tsp water to a serving glass. Use a spoon to mix into a loose paste (you want as few clumps as possible). Then add several big ice cubes and top with dairy-free milk of choice. Stir to combine.

  4. In addition to being used to make golden milk, we also think it makes a delicious spice mix for vegetables, soups, smoothies, and more!

Notes
