Golden Milk, 2 Variants

Updated: Mar 23, 2021



I've recently gotten into having Golden Milk in the evenings - that is, warm milk with turmeric and other spices. The first time I looked up a couple of recipes to get ideas of spice outlines, as it were, and then from there on out I started playing with the spicing. Some days it would be more golden, with warm spice notes behind it, another much milder, milk with a tinge of yellow and a hint of spices. Some days I include orange peel, sometime almond extract. Sometimes it is simple, just turmeric and one or two other notes, sometimes much more complex, a layering of tones and spices to achieve a rich flavour profile. Here are two of my favourites. Let me know what you think!


Ingredients:

For variation 1:

3 c milk

1-2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp honey

1 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp ginger

1/4 - 1/2 tsp cloves

1-2 tsp dried orange peel

1/4 tsp Aloha Spiced Cacao (original or chilli)


For variation 2:

3 c milk

1 tsp turmeric

3/4 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp cloves

1 tsp honey

1/2 - 3/4 tsp almond extract

1/2 tsp grapefruit or orange peel (I've used both, but the grapefruit works better and is more powerful)


1) Pour milk into a saucepan and place over gentle heat. Add other ingredients and stir gently to distribute evenly. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Taste test, tweak and serve.


I find this drink perfect before bedtime. It is warm and comforting and hot milk has a soporific effect. I am a bit disappointed not to have tried this earlier, but I guess now is better than later or never. Let me know what you think of my variants, and what you do for yours!
