Golden Milk Recipe Notes
This golden turmeric milk is something I revisit every time the weather gets cooler. If you are a fan of chai tea lattes this would be right up your alley. Soy milk (or fav plant milk) and coconut milk are infused with fresh turmeric, ginger, cinnamon sticks, star anise and black peppercorns. A touch of maple syrup is added at the end to help balance heavy spice, or to sweeten it up to your liking. Golden Milk does feel like a treat to me, and I love it, but I also feel like I'm putting something good into my body. I prefer not to drink copious amounts of coconut milk, so I like to serve this golden milk in small mugs, piping hot, with maybe a sprinkle of cinnamon on top.
