Golden Milk: Sara Bigatti's turmeric-almond milk recipe

Golden Milk; a healthy and tasteful ‘medicine’

A cup of Golden Milk is often the start of my day. It’s healty and yummy.

The first time I saw Golden Milk was on a picture on pinterest. It was a beautiful picture, so out of curiosity I looked up the main ingretient, turmeric, and found out it was anti-inflamatory and very healthy. After reading the story I forget about it again. Up until a day I was shopping on a kind of farmers market in Playa, Mexico. A girl was selling Indian inspired food. Among it was a little jar with a yellow paste inside. I asked her what it was and she told me it was the paste to make Golden Milk. I took it home, added some almond milk and prepared it. It was disguisting. I just added the paste to the milk; without adding anything else. To make it taste better, I started adding things, like agave syrup to make it taste more sweet. Slowly I started to like it and drink it first thing in the morning.

Overtime I’ve been experimenting with the recipe. Adding ginger and anis. By now I think I have a recipe that is not only healthy, but tastes great as well.

Ingredients Golden Milk

  • Curcuma/turmeric
  • Cinnamon
  • Almond or rice milk
  • Dried anis flowers
  • Gingerroot
  • Honey
  • Coconut oil

How to make Golden Milk

  • Peel the ginger and slice it in small pieces
  • Put the milk in a pan and bring to boil
  • Add the turmeric, cinnamon,  ginger and stir
  • When the milk is boiling, lower the fire and simmer for a few minutes
  • Pour the milk in a cup. Add a tea spoon of coconut oil and honey to taste

    Hi Bren! Thanks for your comment 😉
    Sometimes if we keep on trying and doing experiments, we can eventually discover something nice!
