There are a lot of underutilized herbs out there in the world. After doing some research on cardamom I realized that it should really be put into an amazing golden milk recipe. If this flavor is too much for you then add a tinge of locally sourced honey to sweeten. Cinnamon lifts spirits along with cardamom which also helps the digestive system. Turmeric cleanses the liver and detoxifies the entire system helping clear skin and organs equally. Black pepper is thrown in to help make the transport for the other herbs more seamless.

Simply Mix Together:

6 ounces almond or coconut milk (whichever milk you prefer)

1/4 tsp cinnamon (less if you’re not into cinnamon)

1 cardamom pod

1/2 tsp turmeric

dash of black pepper

Heat everything together in a sauce pan whisking pretty regularly as not to burn the milk substitute. If you’re adding honey add it right now so that it dissipates into the milk mixture. Warm the mixture until steaming and all of the turmeric and cinnamon are thoroughly dissolved. Sit and take in the aromas that lift from the cup, stay with whatever thoughts wash over you. Don’t cast them away if they’re bothersome stay with them and let them soak back into the universe. Drink up and do some twist heavy yoga or meditate.

  1. I wonder if this would be a good bed time drink for the kiddos? They keep asking for warm milk. I’m not a huge cow milk drinker and try to give it to them as little as possible. I like the idea of coconut milk! I will try it and see how it goes! Maybe tweeking the herbs a bit so it’s a really mellow drink. Cinnamon warm milk is always good 😉 I save so many of your posts in my email. Great ideas and info!
