ULTRA-GOLDEN MILK BEFORE BED

  • Better digestion
  • Happier muscles
  • A rock star immune system
  • Increased metabolism
  • Clearer Skin
  • Better sleep
  • Liver Tonic, anyone?

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for the next best thing to help you sleep better, have nicer skin, and keep you healthy. I may have found the proper remedy, although I have not tried it long enough to give a full results recap just yet! I bring to you: Golden Milk! Golden milk is basically a lightly spiced drink – similar to chai (yum!) – that has a ton of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Try it out and let me know what you think! This recipe serves two.

  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk, preferably coconut milk beverage or almond milk
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
  • 1 (1-inch) piece turmeric, unpeeled, thinly sliced, or 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric
  • 1 (1/2-inch) piece ginger, unpeeled, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
  • Ground cinnamon (for serving)

Whisk coconut milk, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey, coconut oil, peppercorns, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a low boil. Reduce heat and simmer until flavors have melded, about 10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into mugs and top with a dash of cinnamon.

ENJOY! XO
