  • Saucepan
  • Stovetop
  • Whisk


  • 3 cups Organic natural milk of choice, such as oat milk, almond milk, coconut milk, hemp milk, or cows milk
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom (optional)
  • a pinch of black pepper
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (skip if you use a full-fat coconut cream or milk)
  • maple syrup, agave syrup, or honey while brewing on the stove. Sweeten to taste - we usually use about 2 tbsp per 3 cups of milk.
  • other optional ingredients: vanilla extract or vanilla powder


  • Gently heat your milk of choice in a pot on the stovetop over medium heat.
  • Once the milk is warm, add the called-for spices, oil, and sweetener.
  • Use a whisk to thoroughly combine all of the ingredients.
  • Continue to heat for about 5 minutes, whisking occasionally.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy warm.
  • Golden milk is also delicious cold over ice, though I wouldn't recommend using oil in the recipe in that case.
  • Store any leftovers in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for up to 3 days.
  • I recommend re-heating leftovers on the stovetop (rather than in a microwave) to preserve maximum nutritional value.
