Golden Milk


  • saucepan


  • ¼ c. turmeric powder
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper powder
  • ½ c. water
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric paste
  • 1 c. whole cow's milk or alternative
  • 1 tsp. ghee
  • maple syrup to taste


  • To make the turmeric paste:
  • Combine the turmeric powder and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and allow to cook over low or medium heat until it forms a thick paste (when almost all of the water has been cooked off ). This can be stored in the refrigerator.
  • To make golden milk:
  • For each cup of Golden Milk, blend together in a saucepan the turmeric paste, milk, ghee, and sweetener.
  • Stir continuously over low heat, and bring the milk just to the boiling point (~180°). You may transfer the mixture to a blender to foam the Golden Milk, or you may simply drink it as is.
  • Sprinkle a little cinnamon and/or nutmeg on top for an added kick.
