HOW DO YOU MAKE IT?
This specific recipe makes a decadent, full bodied and rich Golden Milk that is so fulfilling (AND SO DAMN DELISH) it can be consumed as a snack!
1 1/2 cups coconut milk (canned is best, but carton works too)
1 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp coconut oil
Honey to taste
To a small saucepan, add coconut milk, almond milk, ground turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon stick, coconut oil, and sweetener of choice (I usually add 3 Tbsp of honey)
Whisk to combine and warm over medium heat. Heat until hot to the touch but not boiling – about 4 minutes – whisking frequently.
Turn off heat and taste to adjust flavour. Add more sweetener to taste or more turmeric or ginger for intense spice + flavour.
Serve immediately, dividing between two glasses. Best when fresh, though leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat on the stovetop or microwave until hot.
I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do!
