Golden milk is an Ayurvedic, soothing, warm drink. It is perfectly comforting during this cold time of year..!

I like to make this vegan version often, and I enjoy drinking it at different times of the day.

Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory qualities, and some studies suggest it also helps improve your mood (when consumed regularly) – personally, I find it is a magical way to both energetically start my day, as well as unwind in the evening!


Prep time: 5 minutes
Serves 2

Nut free Gluten free

(Nut free optional)



  • 3 cups almond, soy, or oat milk
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • A pinch of ground pepper
  • 2 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (optional)



In a small pot, warm up the milk (make sure not to burn the milk, we just want it to be warm), then add the spices.

Mix well and serve.

Add coconut oil and maple syrup if desired.


I like to vigorously whisk the milk before adding the spices in, to create a lovely foam. Once you add the spices, gently mix them in, so you don’t ‘break’ the foam
