Have you tried the ‘Golden Milk’?


They say to leave Santa some cookies and milk. I say–to my nephews–to leave me some White Chocolate Macadamia cookies and some golden milk!ย  What’s a ‘Golden Milk’ you may ask?

Since my unfortunate accident 2 months ago, I learned more about bone density loss and have been consciously upping my intake of milk for calcium. I stopped drinking coffee and turned into drinking more milk and tea in a day.

I recently accidentally discovered “Golden MIlk” while trying to finish all the half-opened packets of things in my pantry and saw my turmetic tea drink spilled all over. So since I have been drinking milk first thing in the morning, I thought of adding a teaspoon of my turmeric tea into my cup of milk–et voila! IT. WAS. DELICIOUS!

Golden milk โ€” also known as turmeric milk โ€” is an Indian drink that has been gaining popularity in Western cultures. This bright yellow beverage is traditionally made by warming up cow’s or plant-based milk with turmeric and other spices, such as cinnamon and ginger.

I was so mindblown and thought to myself how come I’ve only thought of mixing them just now??! I thought I discovered something unique but a simple Google search told me that the “Golden Milk” has been long done by many. ๐Ÿค”


Traditionally, you’d have to warm the milk before adding Turmeric and you have the option to add spices like cinnamon and ginger. But what I do is I just add a teaspoon of Turmeric powder in my cold milk and drink it. I tried adding two teaspoons and it was still just as satisfying.

I might be a little late in the game but here are some of the benefits of consuming the Golden Milk or sometimes called as the Turmeric Latte:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Prevents cell damage because curcumin has antioxidant properties
  • Improves mood
  • Supports brain function and improving memory
  • Prevents heart disease
  • Possibly reduces the risk of cancer
  • Lowers blood sugar levels
  • Boosts the immune system.


To make it a little more festive and season-appropriate, I ordered some cookies to pair it with. Ahh, simple pleasures. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Have you ever tried drinking a cup of Golden Milk?
