I’m sure you’ve heard or seen the latest health craze by now; “golden milk” has become a household name in the wellness world in the past few months with its superfood ingredients and long list of health benefits.  But it’s actually an age-old concoction with simple, yet effective all natural ingredients that just so happens to also be a comforting, warm, delicious drink.  I personally love to enjoy my vegan golden milk in the evening as I unwind from the day, with a sprinkle of ground cinnamon on top. 

The health benefits of vegan golden milk are almost too good to be true; the ingredients all pack a healthful punch.  Its main ingredient is turmeric, which is known to be a strong antioxidant, but it also has anti-cancer properties and anti-inflammatory effects.  The full list of benefits goes on and on, including being a liver detoxifier and immunity booster, too. But golden milk also includes coconut oil, which we’ve all ready about the 23498234029 health benefits of, as well as fresh ginger that helps with digestion, nausea, bacterial infections and even a big fighter against heart disease and stroke. Lastly honey, which helps to prevent heart disease as well, along with a whole slew of healing effects. And if you suffer from seasonal allergies like me and pollen is the main culprit then ingesting local honey is said to reduce your reaction to seasonal pollen by half.  But keep in mind it must be local honey!

Anyway, making vegan golden milk is easy; simply combine all of the ingredients, bring to a simmer for about 10 minutes, then enjoy! You can add more or less honey as you decide on your sweetness preference, as well as coconut milk versus almond milk with the range of richness and consistency for both. The drink can even be made as a batch, storing up to five days in an airtight container in the refrigerator before being reheated.  My recipe below serves four, and I’m sure you’ll find that you want to keep it all to yourself to enjoy!  It’s that good.  Cheers to health and happiness, friends. Truly, MKR

P.S. You may be tempted to skip the black pepper but don’t; when paired with turmeric, black pepper helps your body absorb turmeric by 2,000%. xo

    Great article! Anyone interested in this stuff should definitely check out the book Everyday Roots. It teaches you how to replace all of the harmful chemical products in your life with organic ones. It’s completely changed my life and how I feel everyday 🙂

    Heres a good article about it: http://reggiesreview.weebly.com/everyday-roots-review.html

    ‘Vegan’
    Lists honey.

    Stealing honey from bees is not good. Supporting this industry also isn’t good. I recommend you replace this ingredient with maple syrup. It’s vegan and we don’t need to threaten the extinction of bees (and therefore mankind) with that ingredient.
