Golden Milk is one of my favorite drinks to make when I want another cup of coffee and I know I shouldn’t. ¬†Maybe I’ve had too much already that day, maybe it’s too late in the day… It used to take me ages to get the ginger and turmeric flavors to infuse into the milk but this version uses essential oils and is ready to go in about 5 minutes.

Just throw the following ingredients into a pan on medium for about 5 minutes, no need to bring to a boil:

  • 1 1/2 nut or coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 T pure maple syrup
  • 3 drops ginger essential oil*
  • 2 drops black pepper essential oil*
  • 1 drop cardamom essential oil* (optional)
  • 1 pea-sized drop of raw coconut oil

*please note: only consume essential oils that have a nutrition label on them and are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade.

I was out of fresh ginger one time when I wanted golden milk and use my ginger essential oil instead, I’ll never go back, the essential oil adds such a different and yummy flavor to the milk.

Once the milk is warmed, put it in a mug and enjoy! Sometimes my husband links to sneak a bit for his coffee. 

Have you tried essential oils in your cooking?
