Turmeric Milk (aka) Golden Milk Recipe

Here's your simple recipe for Turmeric Milk, often referred to as "Golden Milk," which is a soothing and healthful drink:


  • 2 cups of milk (can use cow's milk or a plant-based alternative like almond, soy, or coconut milk)
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • A pinch of black pepper (to enhance absorption of turmeric)
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger, grated (or 1/2 tsp ginger powder)
  • Honey or maple syrup, to taste


  1. Combine Ingredients: In a pot, combine the milk, turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, and grated ginger. If you're using ginger powder, add it along with the other spices.

  2. Heat Mixture: Place the pot over low to medium heat. Warm the mixture for about 3-5 minutes. Be sure to stir occasionally. Do not let it come to a boil.

  3. Simmer: Once the milk is hot (but not boiling), reduce the heat and let it simmer for a couple of minutes. This allows the flavors to meld together.

  4. Strain and Sweeten: Strain the milk into a cup to remove the ginger and any large spice particles. Add honey or maple syrup to taste. Stir well.

  5. Serve Warm: Enjoy your Turmeric Milk while it's warm. It's especially comforting in the evening, before bed.

Optional Additions:

  • A pinch of cardamom or nutmeg can add a nice depth of flavor.
  • Adding a teaspoon of coconut oil or ghee can make it richer and also aids in the absorption of turmeric.


  • Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
  • This drink can be soothing during colds or flu and is also enjoyed for its calming effects before bedtime.

Enjoy your homemade Turmeric Milk!
