This recipe for golden milk (or what I like to call turmeric tea, even though there aren’t any tea leaves in it) is an antioxidant powerhouse made with fresh turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. It’s also delicious because the base is coconut milk.

This turmeric tea is super velvety and warming. It’s such a wonderful non-dairy drink, that still gives you those super creamy milky vibes. Because it’s caffeine-free you can enjoy it in the morning or the evening. It’s a lovely drink to sip while enjoying a bath before bed!
