Golden Turmeric Milk


1 cup grass-fed milk or coconut milk (I use A2 milk which is a healthier dairy option. For a non-dairy option, use Oat Milk like Califa Farms Barista Blend Oat Milk)

1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick 

1 (1-inch) piece turmeric, unpeeled and thinly sliced, or 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric 

1 (1/2-inch) piece ginger, unpeeled and thinly sliced 

1 tablespoon honey (can substitute agave syrup)

1 tablespoon coconut oil 

1/4 teaspoon whole black peppercorns 

Ground cinnamon (for serving) 


Whisk the milk, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey, coconut oil, peppercorns, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a low boil. 

Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes. 

Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a glass or mugs and top with a dash of cinnamon.
