Golden milk, with its warm hue and soothing aroma, is a beloved Ayurvedic beverage celebrated for both its flavor and health benefits. The star ingredient, turmeric, renowned for its anti-inflammatory properties, lends a subtle earthiness to the concoction, while ginger adds a gentle kick and aids digestion.

Warming, comforting, and full of nutritional merit!

I love to drink lots of this stuff on cold days or when I'm feeling under the weather. Sipped slowly, golden milk embodies wellness in every sip, inviting you to savor both its flavor and its healing properties. It really warms the body from the inside out!



Substitutions?

I do not have turmeric! Can I substitute it? Unfortunately this is the most crucial ingredient and cannot be substituted.


I do not have cardamom! Can I substitute it? If you don't have cardamom on hand you can leave it out entirely, but it will be missing a little depth. You could also add a pinch of nutmeg to balance things.


I do not have cinnamon! Can I substitute it? If you don't have cinnamon on hand you can leave it out entirely, but it will be missing a little depth. You could also add a pinch of nutmeg to balance things.


I do not have ground ginger! Can I substitute it? You can substitute it with 4 or 5 thin slices of fresh ginger, if you have it. You can also leave it out, but then you'll be missing the warming light spiciness in the final product.


Can I use some other kind of sweetener? Absolutely. You could also use date syrup, agave syrup, or even straight sugar if you prefer, although plain sugar has less depth.

Turn heat to medium and bring the mixture to a light simmer for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to marry. Stir occasionally being sure to scrape the bottom of the pan so the milk doesn't burn.
