Golden milk, a super nutritious and healthy drink, made with 5 ingredients in just 5 minutes. It’s so comforting, soothing, and tastes amazing!


  • 2 cups plant milk of your choice (500 ml), I used unsweetened soy milk
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric 
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger (optional)
  • A dash of ground black pepper


  1. Add all the ingredients to a saucepan, stir until well combined and cook over medium heat until hot (about 3-5 minutes). Stir occasionally.
  2. Serve immediately or keep the leftovers in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Reheat on the stovetop or microwave until warm enough.


  • You can make this recipe with almond milk, oat milk, cashew milk, or even coconut milk instead of soy milk.
  • Although sweetener is optional and you don’t have to incorporate it to your golden milk, it will taste better if you do.
  • Feel free to use any kind of sweetener.
  • Ground black pepper enhances turmeric’s properties and absorption, but you can omit it if you don’t like how it tastes.
  • Incorporate, change, or replace all the spices you want.
  • I’d recommend you make your own vanilla extract at home, as it’s healthier and more affordable.
  • I used ground cinnamon, although you could also use a cinnamon stick instead. Just remember to remove it before serving.
