Easy Golden Milk Recipe – Almond Milk with Turmeric

easy golden milk

Turmeric has so many benefits that it would be difficult to cover all in just one post. It can help to relieve joint pain and increase your memory. But I like to use it for it’s anti-inflamitory benefits as well and boosting the immune system. This Golden Milk Recipe is a delicious and easy way to get the benefits of turmeric. You have to try it to see how it helps you!

Personally, I like to use it when the people around me start getting sick! Golden Milk along with other natural cold remedies have helped me stay healthy over the years.

Earlier this year both kids got the flu. As you can predict, they were coughing in my face and rubbing their germs all over me! I was taking vitamin C and drinking lots of green tea and orange juice. But I also incorporated Golden Milk in to my mornings and miraculously, I didn’t get sick. At that point I was sold on Golden Milk.

The standard recipe isn’t sweet at all and it has a very strong turmeric flavor. It was hard to drink since I wasn’t used to turmeric. I started adding (a lot) of honey and it was delicious! It has actually become a replacement for a latte. In fact, it would probably be delicious with a little coffee mixed in… hm…

Tips for Making Golden Milk

Golden Milk has a similar consistency to a latte. Therefore the first time I tried it, I expected it to be sweet. I was disappointing when it wasn’t sweet at all! If this is your first time drinking it, I would recommend adding a lot of honey. At least 2 Tbsp. Another alternative (my favorite way!) is to used sweetened Soy or Almond milk. I keep this to a minimum since it is added sugar, but I tell myself that the health benefits of Turmeric offset the sugar! Shhhh…

I wonder if you could also add cinnamon. Cinnamon would help with sugar as well. Looks delicious!

Cinnamon sounds delicious, I think it would be perfect in this drink!

I’ve heard so many good things about tumeric, but never ever tasted it! This recipe for golden milk is so easy I’m tempted to do it, but if you don’t mind I have questions (you might find silly, sorry) Do you drink this hot, warm or cold? And also, is this Tumeric easily found in grocer shops? what does tumeric look like, is it a powder?, I’m sorry of my silly questions, but I’ve never seen it before!

NaturalDeets June 9, 2018 - 6:14 pm

Those are not silly questions! 🙂 Tumeric is a powder that can be found in the spice section of the grocery store. I get mine from Trader Joes. It comes in the same type of container as other spices. They also sell fresh turmeric but it is seasonal and has a much stronger flavor than the powder. You will want to drink this hot or warm. Let me know if you try it!

NAti June 10, 2018 - 12:16 pm

I’ve checked my grocery store and didn’t have any (live in a small town in Switzerland) they told me to check a specialized store in imported goods, but it is closed on Sundays. I’m determined to try it because I am also determined to improve my health by the quality of my eating and drinking!

NaturalDeets June 10, 2018 - 7:42 pm

That’s too bad! I hope you have better luck at the imported goods store, I really think you will enjoy it!

I’ve heard there are so many health benefits to this! I can’t wait to try your recipe this weekend!

NaturalDeets June 9, 2018 - 6:17 pm

I’d love to hear how you like it!

I would think that you could not add the vanilla by using Vanilla flavored Almond Milk instead. I am a bit wary about using Tumeric, but I know a lot of people who swear by it.

NaturalDeets June 9, 2018 - 6:02 pm

That’s a great idea! I know vanilla flavored almond milk is easy to come by these days.

Sue Tanya Mchorgh June 9, 2018 - 10:20 pm

I have been hearing about all these health benefits of Tumeric. It’s pretty cool that I found this post. I would love to try this golden milk recipe once I have all the ingredients

True, turmeric has manifold benefits. Now I just have to sell this wonderful drink to my family- everybody is down with a cold!

NaturalDeets June 10, 2018 - 7:41 pm

Just add a lot of honey or use the sweetened almond milk and they’ll be on board 😉

I’ve read a lot about the benefits of turmeric, I’ve even given some to my dog! I’ve never tried it myself, but the health benefits sound too good to miss out on!

NaturalDeets June 19, 2018 - 12:31 am

I’ve never thought to give it to the dog. I’ll have to look into that!

Ashley June 13, 2018 - 12:15 am

I’ve never heard of this before but I’m going to try it as I hate getting sick! How many times a week do you take this? I’d be interested to know if others have tried and what their results were. Thanks for sharing!!

NaturalDeets June 19, 2018 - 12:30 am

I only drink it when the kids are sick and I only have one a day at the most. I could drink it all the time but I only think of it when everyone is coughing around me!

Kusum June 15, 2018 - 3:32 pm

Golden milk is my absolute favorite and best remedy for cough and cold. Being drinking it since childhood.

I like the recipe a lot. Thank you. I give to my loved one that has atherosclerosis . They say the meds the doctor gives to them makes them feel worse every day and they just don’t want to take it I felt like I had to do something to help them so I made them some and they like it a lot which makes it much easier for me as their care taker to know their CV system is being helped. I get my uremic at a local Indian market they have both powder and fresh.
