How To Make Golden Milk
The milk is best consumed while it's still warm preferably at before bed.
There's no restriction on playing around with the basic recipe. You can add a bit of honey to sweeten it or spice it up more by adding a dash of freshly ground black pepper or cardamom when you are warming up the milk.
The basic recipe, according to Wellness Mama, is simple and takes less than 5 minutes.
2 cups of milk of choice (coconut works best but you can replace it with almost, pecan or dairy)
1 teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon raw honey or maple syrup or to taste (optional)
Pinch of black pepper (increases absorption)
Tiny piece of fresh, peeled ginger root or 1/4 tsp ginger powder
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
First, blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth.
Pour into a small sauce pan and heat for 3-5 minutes over medium heat until hot but not boiling.
