A few easy notes on Golden Milk…

  • Use any type of liquid for this. I personally love coconut milk, because it lends a nutty and caramel flavor to the drink. Sometimes, I use just milk and sometimes I do a milk-water mix. Use whichever you prefer and tailor it to your liking.
  • Turmeric is also known for its bright color, which stains! If you’re using a cheesecloth (like I do!) it can be hard to remove the color. In fact, it might permanently stain the cloth. So, use a metal strainer or colander if you’re not wanting to dye your cheesecloth.
  • There’s a variety of different herbs and spices that you can use for this drink, which is why it’s one of my favorites. I feel like the drink is also forgiving, so if I had too much ginger or too much cinnamon, it still has the same cozy flavor.
  • The use of Ayurvedic turmeric has been around for centuries and has lots of associated with history. For a delve into turmeric, this article has lots of interesting facts.
