Golden Milk - A Wellness Beverage


Golden Milk (Turmeric Milk) with Coconut Milk

In the realm of wellness beverages, golden milk stands out as a radiant blend of tradition and flavor. This ancient Ayurvedic drink, known as "haldi doodh" in India, has gained widespread popularity for its purported health benefits and comforting warmth. Its signature golden hue derives from turmeric, a spice revered for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

While golden milk can be prepared using various milk bases, coconut milk emerges as a particularly harmonious choice. Its rich, creamy texture complements the earthy notes of turmeric, while its natural sweetness balances the spice's subtle bitterness. Additionally, coconut milk is an excellent source of healthy fats, further enhancing the absorption of turmeric's beneficial compounds.

Savor the Golden Delight

Crafting golden milk with coconut milk is a simple and rewarding endeavor. Here's a straightforward recipe:


  • 1 (13.5-ounce) can of full-fat coconut milk (a full can have around 10g of carbs)
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger or 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • Sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, whisk together the coconut milk, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, and black pepper.

  2. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat, whisking occasionally, until it begins to simmer.

  3. Reduce the heat to low and continue simmering for 5-10 minutes, allowing the flavors to harmonize.

  4. Strain the mixture into a mug.

  5. Add a sweetener of choice, such as stevia or monk fruit, if desired.

  6. Enjoy the warm, comforting goodness of your golden milk with coconut milk.
