Turmeric Milk Recipe

A soothing and nutritious drink, Golden Turmeric Milk combines the goodness of turmeric with the creamy richness of milk. Perfect for relaxing evenings or as a comforting beverage during chilly weather.


  • 2 cups milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, adjust to taste)
  • A pinch of black pepper (enhances turmeric absorption)
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg (for garnish, optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, pour the milk and heat it over medium-low heat until it’s warm but not boiling. Stir occasionally to prevent scalding.
  2. Add the ground turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper to the warm milk. Whisk gently until the spices are well combined.
  3. Allow the mixture to simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. This helps infuse the flavors of the spices into the milk.
  4. If using sweetener, stir in honey or maple syrup to taste. Adjust the sweetness according to your preference.
  5. Once the flavors have melded together, remove the saucepan from the heat.
  6. Pour the golden turmeric milk into mugs or cups.
  7. Optionally, sprinkle a pinch of ground nutmeg on top for a touch of warmth and aroma.
  8. Serve the turmeric milk warm and enjoy its comforting and nourishing properties.
