Golden Milk Recipe

Golden Milk Spices

This warm and frothy golden milk is such a perfect recipe for healing. Turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon are warm spices that have incredible benefits. Not only are they anti-inflammatory but they are also shown to prevent many diseases, may improve brain function, and have antiviral properties.

Pepper is included in this recipe, in case you haven’t noticed. Pepper may seem like an odd ingredient, but it helps the body absorb the curcumin found in turmeric, ensuring you get all the health benefits. Another thing that is good to eat with turmeric is healthy fat. Curcumin is better absorbed when consumed with fat, such as full-fat coconut milk. I like to make this golden milk with either full-fat coconut milk, or a combination of coconut milk and almond milk. Another way to add fat into this beverage is to add MCT (medium-chain triglyceride) oil, which is big in the keto community.

Anti-inflammatory Golden Milk

I like to enjoy golden milk on a cold day, or when I’m feeling a little down. I also make a cup when I’m not feeling great or when my MS symptoms get the best of me. Being anti-inflammatory, this recipe is great for someone with MS or other chronic illness. The spices help reduce inflammation, and the warm milk and flavors make me feel comforted.

In this recipe I use a milk frother to ensure all the spices and nut milks get blended together evenly. I use this tool a lot in the kitchen!
