Coconut Golden Milk

Coconut Golden Milk

Looking for a new dairy-free beverage? Try this creamy, hot milk drink that is filled to the brim with nutrients.


1 (13.4 oz) can full fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon ginger (ground or freshly grated)
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey


Heat the coconut milk in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
Warm the coconut milk until you see a small amount of steam, about 2-3 minutes.
Add the ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Whisk gently to combine. Add the vanilla extract and whisk to combine.
Take the milk off the heat, allow it to cool slightly, and add the maple syrup/honey.
Once all ingredients are combined, bring the milk back to a simmer. Simmer until bubbles form on the sides of the pot.
Before serving, strain off any remaining ginger fibers (if using freshly grated). 
*Serve warm
