Easy Vanilla Turmeric Golden Milk
Serves: 1 serving
  • Ingredients:
  • 1 cup (8oz) unsweetened vanilla almond milk (we used one with 30 calories per cup)
  • 2 tsp.fresh grated turmeric root (or ½ tsp. ground turmeric)
  • ¼ tsp. fresh grated ginger (or ¼ tsp. ground ginger)
  • ¼ tsp. whole black peppercorns (or pinch ground black pepper)
  • pinch of ground nutmeg and cardamom
  • 1½ whole cinnamon stick (or ½ tsp. ground cinnamon)
  • dash of salt (optional)*
  • 2 drops stevia or to taste (preferably organic)**
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract.
  • 1 dropper of astragalus root
  • *We didn’t use salt and loved it bu some people prefer it.
  • **If you prefer not to use stevia and still would like a sweetener, try 1 tsp. maple syrup, (preferably organic, like Doc's maple syrup) or 1 teaspoon honey or any other maple syrup. See nutrition facts below.
  1. In a medium-sized pot, combine all of the ingredients except the astragalus root extract and heat over medium-high heat. Bring to a simmer and whisk gently for 5 minutes to allow all the spices to release their flavor. (If using powder spices, 2-3 minutes is fine, but 5 minutes seems to make the flavor bolder!)
  2. Remove pot from heat. If using whole peppercorns, strain them out.
  3. Pour the mixture into a blender and add the astragalus root extract. Blend on high for 30 seconds until foamy and creamy texture. (If you want it to be less like a foamy latte, skip the blending and just whisk vigorously and then pour into your glass. You can also pour this over ice for an iced golden milk latte).
  4. Pour into a glass, garnish with a sprinkle of turmeric powder and nutmeg, kick your feet up and relax!
