    • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

    • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

To make one serving of fresh Golden Milk

    1. Warm your milk and oil over the stovetop until as hot as you like it and the oil is melted. Be sure to stir to avoid burning.

    1. Add your spices and sweetener to the milk.

    1. Blend/mix well together.

    1. Pour in your cup and enjoy!

To make from the Golden Milk mix

  1. Add all the dry spice ingredients to a jar and shake/stir together well.  Seal and store, preferably in a dark cupboard.  For expiration date, note the dates on the spices you have used.
  2. When ready to make a cup of golden milk, warm up 1 serving of milk and oil.
  3. Add 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of the dry mix (depending on how strong you like it).  This recipe allows for 20 servings of 1 teaspoon per cup.  However, you and kids might like it more mild and prefer just 1/2 of a teaspoon.  This would then get you 40 servings per mix recipe.
  4. Add in your sweetener of choice and blend and serve.


We have found that for the best taste possible, use a blender to blend together the milk, spices and sweetener.  Something magical happens that makes it the most delightful cup o’ gold!  The more froth, the better!
