How to Make Golden Milk
Golden milk is easy to make at home. For a single serving of golden milk or about one cup, simply follow this recipe:
1 cup of an unsweetened milk of your choice
1-2 tsp of turmeric powder or fresh grated
1 small piece of grated fresh ginger or 1/2 tsp of ginger powder
1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder
1 pinch of ground black pepper
1 tsp of honey, stevia, or maple syrup (optional)
To make the golden milk, simply mix all ingredients in a small saucepan or pot and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until fragrant and flavorful. Strain the drink through a fine strainer into mugs and top with a pinch of cinnamon.
Golden milk can also be made in advance and stored in your refrigerator for up to five days. Simply reheat it before drinking. Aside from the fact that it has a wonderful taste, there are other reasons to drink Turmeric Milk.
