I just realized that Golden Milk is a thing when a friend told me about it. Way to go being a blogger having a finger on the pulse of time. I did get that tumeric is the new hot thing but Golden Milk?! Sounds interesting. I like golden stuff and milk. What could be wrong?!
First of all: the name. I mean that’s not golden. It’s not sparkly. That’s yellow. Or orange. But besides that: pretty good! Not my favorite drink but I made it a few times by now and it’s great on rainy days when it’s a little cold and I need a little (healthy) pick-me-up.
- 1/4 cup of ground tumeric
- 1/2 cup of water
- 2 cups of rice milk
- 1 tbsp of tumeric paste
- 1 tbsp ground ginger
- For the tumeric paste heat the water with the tumeric in a pot until it becomes a paste. This will be enough for many drinks and will last in the fridge for weeks.
- For the golden milk heat the rice milk with the ginger and tumeric paste in a pot. Stir well and keep it from boiling. Once the tumeric paste has dissolved and nicely hot, it's done!
When I first made it, I froze some of the milk in ice cubes and cooled the drink down. Now the Golden Milk is perfect for the hot summer days.
Now that I have this tumeric paste in storage, I use my milk foamer to make the Golden Milk. Best. Life. Hack.
Just put the milk in the milk foamer, add the tumeric paste and turn it on (hot and foamy). The rice milk doesn’t foam but you can make it with regular milk as well and the foam is pretty awesome!
I still have the feeling that I’m drinking something really healthy. The rice milk sweetens the drink but the tumeric paste is a little tart.
Have you tried tumeric yet? Any recipes you’d like to share?
Now. Carry on!
