Golden milk, also known as haldi doodh in Hindi, is a drink made with milk and turmeric. The name comes from the color that the turmeric turns the milk. It is super healthy for you because of all of the spices used, which makes it great for people who struggle with inflammation and circulation. You can make this drink with regular milk or use non-dairy to make it vegan! Let’s get started.

Spice Mix

The spices are really the star of this drink. You will need turmeric, cinnamon, ginger powder, and black pepper. You can also add in nutmeg or cloves for even more flavor and health benefits! Once you’ve gathered everything, put them all in a jar or airtight container and mix well. When you want to make the milk you can simply take a tablespoon or more from the mix and make it!


To make cold golden milk, add the mix to a glass with water and whatever sweetener you like, such as honey, agave, or maple syrup. Add ice and the type of milk you like, stir, and enjoy!


Put the mix, water, and sweetener into a saucepan and stir until well combined. Add in your choice of milk and whisk together. Pour into a mug and enjoy!
