Anti-Inflammatory Elixir – Golden Milk

Anti-Inflammatory Elixir – Golden Milk

I’m loving turmeric this winter. Its anti-inflammatory properties make it my go-to herbal medicine for soooooo many issues, including joint pain, depression, and those nasty winter colds and flus. There are a lot of bugs going around town at the moment, so when I’m feeling run down, this Golden Milk is my simple, quick, prop-you-up-and-make-you-feel-strong drink – and it tastes pretty good too!


This recipe is Hayley Proof, which means it’s perfect for beginners. Click on the logo for more info.

It’s super important to simmer the mixture – this “activates” the spices in order to release the active ingredients into the milk (the official term is a “decoction” – that’s herbal nerd speak for a brew that is boiled). Don’t skimp on this step – it will mean the difference between a warm drink and a powerful tonic.

250ml almond milk (or dairy free milk of your choice)

1/4 tsp good quality turmeric powder

1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp honey

Let’s do this! 

In a small saucepan over a medium heat, whisk the turmeric and cinnamon into the almond milk.

Bring it to the boil and then simmer, over a low heat, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Pour into a cup or mug, stir in the honey and serve.

    I love that you added cinnamon to this! That’s my go-to recipe. I’ve also added raw cacao powder and made a golden mylk hot cocoa which is super yummy with a little antioxidant boost. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
