Golden milk is an anti-inflammatory and highly soothing ayurvedic drink that can relax you before before bedtime. If you don’t do dairy, substitute any other type of milk and then sip and relax while it works its magic.

3 cups any kind of milk – dairy, almond, coconut, etc.
1/2 t tumeric
1/2 t ceylon cinnamon
2 peppercorns
3/4″ diced fresh ginger or 1/2 t powdered
2 cardamom pods or 1/8 t powdered cardamom
1/8 t allspice, any form
2 cloves
1 t ghee (clarified butter) – optional
1-2 t honey, maple syrup or other sweetner – optional

Combine all ingredients except honey or sweetener. Heat on medium on stovetop, stirring frequently so the milk doesn’t burn for about 5 minutes, then turn on low and let simmer 10 more to really blend flavors. Stir in sweetener and then strain, sip, enjoy!

Makes 2 servings. You can refrigerate the second one for tomorrow if you like and reheat.
