Golden Milk

November 22nd, 2019 Drink of the Week

close up warm golden milk

If you haven’t tried golden milk, it’s time to add it to your list of nourishing drinks. It’s the drink you make if you’re feeling exhausted, poorly, low or just in need of a hug in a mug. It contains many powerful spices, particularly turmeric and ginger, and is guaranteed to warm you up and make you feel cared for. Play around with the quantites to get the taste profile you like (e.g. more or less sweetener, vanilla etc). Enjoy warm, cooled over ice or even as the base for a banana smoothie.


1 cup coconut milk (or milk of choice)
1 cup water
1 tsp turmeric
Pinch of ginger
1 heaped tsp ginger
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
Pinch nutmeg
Pinch cloves
Big spoonful of honey or maple syrup (to taste)


Mix all the ingredients together in a saucepan.

Simmer gently for 10 minutes.

Pour into your favourite teacup of mug.

Working my recovery....

Mrs D's Blog

Today is day 1630 of sobriety for me and this is proving an interesting time for me right now… The hard work of early sobriety is over, not drinking is normal and therefore the pride and joy from being a non-drinker is also a bit diminished (still there but not so acute).
