Golden Milk

  • 2 cups of milk (or substitute coconut milk)
  • 1 teaspoon dried turmeric (or one-half inch fresh turmeric thinly sliced or diced)
  • 1 teaspoon dried ginger (or one-half inch fresh ginger thinly sliced or diced)
  • A sprinkle of black pepper
  • Honey to taste

  • Place milk in a saucepan over medium heat
  • Add turmeric, ginger, and pepper
  • Stir well if you are using the dried spices
  • Let the milk begin to simmer — small bubbles will form on the sides of the saucepan. Stir
  • Allow to heat for another minute or two being careful not to let the milk overheat. Continue to stir at this point to get better heat distribution
  • Turn off heat, cover, and allow the mixture to sit for ten minutes or so to improve the infusion
  • Strain the milk through a strainer if you have used fresh ingredients
  • Serve warm
  • Enjoy!
