Golden Milk Recipe
Nights like this I wish... Don't know why I have this song stuck in my head but I wish for peace every night and when it’s not I do things to make it that way. After a long day, I might make one of my favorite drinks Golden Milk. I'm a tea lover. I love to use herbs and all natural products. It’s part of my culture. Well, I don’t think my people call it Golden Milk. I never knew I was drinking Golden Milk until I stumbled upon its name online a few months ago. Back in 2016, I visited my family in St. Lucia and my aunt sent me back to the states with so many treats including two bottles of turmeric powder. Two 16 oz bottles that is. A little goes a long way so I had to figure out how to use it. I remembered that my mom used it when she made fish, but learning of its benefits of immune system boosting, I began using it in my tea every morning. My colleagues would ask if it was orange juice but nope it was my homemade Golden Brew.
- Fresh organic ginger
- Cinnamon stick (or powder)
- Vanilla Essence
- (Sweetener of choice) I like Brown sugar or Honey
- (Milk of choice) It’s Almond milk for me.
On the stove place a small saucepan. Pour in 8 ounces of Almond milk. Drop in a cinnamon stick and about a teaspoon of grated fresh ginger . Set it on a low flame for about 5 minutes until it boils. Strain the liquid then pour it back into the pot before adding a ½ tsp of turmeric and a dash or two of nutmeg. Add a sweetener and a few drops of vanilla essence, then whisk it for about 2 minutes (yup I know, so much work but it’s so worth it).
To save time I decided to fuse together the main ingredients and make a batch. Now, I only have to add the vanilla essence, milk and sweetener of my choice. I included coconut milk powder which may help with cholesterol and the immune system but I added it to the batch mainly for its taste.
For the Valentine's Day gift sets I’ve included two ounces of milk of my Golden Milk fusion. lClick here to purchase. All you have to do brew the powder in your favorite milk liquid and add the sweetener of your choice. I also included an electric whisk to better mix the product. It leaves that foamy stuff on top which makes me feel like I’m at a cafe. So relaxing.
