Now that we have entered autumn this spicy, warming, and creamy drink is back in my evening routine.
There are rumours that golden milk can boost your immune system but I’ve found this to be very helpful for digestion as well.
When I’m not home at dinner time, golden milk often serves as an easily digestible and soothing dinner. I’m very sensitive to mealtime changes and would rather eat every day at the same time but it’s not always possible.
When I have to skip dinner a big cup of golden milk is satisfying enough to keep the hunger away until morning comes and I love to enjoy it also after a proper dinner to help with the digestion.
You can find so many different versions of golden milk on the internet but here’s how I like to make it:
- 3 dl of oat milk (or a milk of your choice)
- 1 generous teaspoon of turmeric powder
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
- A pinch of black pepper
- A pinch of saffron
- 1 1/2 tsp of cashew butter
- 1 tsp of honey
- one drop of food-grade cardamom essential oil (or 1/2 tsp cardamom powder.)
Pour the milk of your choice in a small saucepan and add the turmeric and cinnamon powders (and cardamom powder if using that instead of the essential oil). Let simmer for about 10 minutes. Put the cashew butter, honey, and one drop of cardamom essential oil in a blender and pour in the hot golden milk. Blend for about 15 seconds or until all the ingredients are mixed well.
Enjoy this creamy golden milk as a calming & nurturing evening drink.
