Golden Milk – Amazing Healthy Drink and Yummy!
I am a mom of two, a yogi, and a passionate Kundalini Yogi & Meditation instructor. A few years ago, while in a sabbatical I had to deal with chronic back pain and I started...
How It Works
Golden Milk is an Ayuvedic recipe that Yogi Bhajan shared with us many years ago. Kundalini Yogis drink a lot but up to now I had never tried. But recently I did a cleanse, and suggested to have some Golden milk after the cleanse to keep the liver in shape. So, I tried and loved it!!
It uses Turmeric paste so it has many health benefits like: helps clean the liver, great for skin, anti-oxidant, prevent heart disease, decrease knee pain, and of course Yummy!!!! Turmeric does not cure any disease but helps to keep our body to regain its own strength. There is a lot of research happening to better understand the healing properties of Turmeric!

For the Turmeric Paste:
½ Cup of spring water
¼ cup of turmeric powder
Cook for 8 min in medium low. Keep mixing. Be careful while cooking because Turmeric can stain. Also, add water if gets to dry. You can store in the refrigerator for about 1 week. I prefer store in a glass container.
For the Golden milk:
1 cup of Almond Milk, Oat Milk or regular milk (up to you). I love Oat Milk and Almond Milk.
½ of teaspoon Turmeric Paste. (Some people prefer less others more).
1 Cardamom pod smashed (optional)
Warm up the milk while mixing the turmeric past and cardamom pod for about 4 minutes in median low.
Some people put honey or maple syrup but my Oat milk is sweet enough, so I didn’t put anything.
After cooking, and once cools down a bit I added ¼ of teaspoon of UDO 369 oil. The recipe calls for raw Almond oil but any other healthy oil is fine.
I hope you enjoy!!!!
