Golden Milk


  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut, rice, or almond milk

  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon turmeric paste (or just add powder OR, if possible, freshly peeled and grated turmeric)

  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

  • Few shakes of freshly ground pepper

  • Generous dash of vanilla

  • Raw local honey or maple syrup to taste

  • Sprinkle of cinnamon to taste

Golden Milk is flavored by black pepper, which enhances the absorption and the anti-inflammatory effects of the turmeric.  Plus, black pepper contains a number of essential nutrients, including manganese, vitamin K, and iron; it is often used to calm digestive issues.  The coconut oil helps your body actually absorb the nutrients from the other ingredients; plus it tastes great!
