How to Make Golden Milk
Prepare Your Spice Bundle
In the middle of a coffee filter or piece of cheesecloth, place the turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. Stir the spices together.
Carefully gather the edges of the coffee filter together to form a bundle and secure at the top with kitchen twine or unflavored dental floss.
Make the Golden Milk
Heat milk on the stove over medium heat until the mixture is warm, but NOT bubbling or boiling.
Stir in the honey until it dissolves.
Remove from heat.
Add the spice bundle and let the mixture steep for 2-3 hours while the milk cools to room temperature.
Store the milk in a glass container. (Turmeric will stain plastic.)
Add Golden Milk to your coffee in place of your regular coffee creamer or heat some up and enjoy as is.
