What is Golden Milk?

It is an Ayurvedic drink that combines Turmeric with other warming herbs like Ginger, Cinnamon and Black Pepper. It is incredibly nutritive and balancing, great for digestion and immunity. Here’s some useful info on these herbs.

đź’›Turmeric (Curcuma longa)

is a powerful root. It’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and a digestive friend.* A fun fact is that if you add black pepper, it can increase the bio-availability of the curcumin (active compound in Turmeric) up to 2000%.

🧡Ginger (Zingiber officinale)

moves energy in the body. It supports digestive flow, is antispasmodic, anti-nausea herb, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial. It can be nice in salves and after a big meal. It may be too hot for people who have overactive motility in their guts.*

🤎Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum)

while it tastes sweet and is soothing, this herb can stabilize sugar levels and is a blood circulatory. May help with female flow at that time of the moon.*

Golden Milk ingredients

Here’s the Recipe

This delightful drink is great before bedtime, supporting your body's strength and providing relaxing, calming properties.*


  • 4 tbs of powdered Turmeric or 1 inch of fresh, ground Turmeric

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 5 tbs filtered water 

  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

 Golden Milk Powder Golden Milk Paste


    Mix dry ingredients. Melt coconut oil on very low heat and quickly add in water + dry ingredients until evenly stirred and becomes a paste. Put into glass jar to cool, then refrigerate.

    Golden Milk

    • 1 cup milk (non-dairy or dairy)

    • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

    • 1/4 teaspoon Golden Milk paste

    • Honey, to taste


    Put all ingredients in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. When it is fully blended and hot but not boiling, remove from heat and pour it into a cup. Add honey to taste (as desired). Sip and enjoy!

    We like to add this paste into other dishes too, as it’s great to apply to soups, eggs or with roasted veggies. This morning we added it into an egg breakfast with roasted beets, kale and mushrooms.
