Recipe: Golden Milk – Ayurvedic & Plant-based

Golden Milk – This luxurious hot drink has its roots in the traditional Indian healing system of Ayurveda. The main ingredients are milk and ground turmeric. Traditionally, the beverage is sweetened with honey. However, you can easily make a nutritious vegan drink out of it.

“Ayurveda is the mysterious box of medical science.”
(Sonu Nigam)

Adding a few more Ayurvedic spices, such as cinnamon, cardamom and ginger, makes it even more comforting, delicious, and nutritious! Add a pinch of black pepper in order to enhance the bioavailability of curcumin – the potent anti-inflammatory substance in turmeric.

It is the perfect drink for cold and rainy days as the ingredients boost your immunity and comfort your throat with its nice warmth. Yum!
