  • 2 Tsp turmeric peeled, grated fresh turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground cardamom
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger or 1 Tbsp peeled grated fresh ginger
  • pinch of black pepper increases absorption
  • pinch of hot pepper spice optional - I used HeathGlen's chipotle spice
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk any milk can be used or just steep in water for a simple tea
  • 1 tsp honey your choice of sugar or sugar substitute
  • consider adding more fat like butter or coconut oil as it increases absorption there is a little fat in coconut milk but adding more fat is common, especially on a keto diet


  • In a small bowl, mix together first six ingredients (the spices).
  • For Golden Milk Latte: Heat 2 cups light, unsweetened coconut milk (or almond milk or milk of choice).
  • Add 1 Tbsp spice mix to an empty tea bag or a tea ball or a tea pot with strainer. Pour the hot milk over the spice mix and steep for about 3 minutes. Remove spice bag or tea ball and add sweetener of choice.
  • For Turmeric Tea: Instead of milk, follow above directions using boiling water.

**Note: This may stain blenders and countertops. The color will eventually fade, but making a thick paste of baking soda and water and scrubbing the stain can help if it happens to you.
