How To: Golden Almond Milk (Vegan)

A delicious, relaxing, nighttime treat!

Golden Milk is a 4,000 year-old concoction which originated in India. Not only is it delicious and comforting to drink, it boasts an amazing health-benefits resume:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Mood booster
  • Blood sugar regulator
  • Promotes restful sleep
  • Improves brain function
  • Improves heart health
  • Improves gut health
  • Eases nausea

Making Golden Milk is very simple and it can be consumed hot or cold. There are dozens of variations. I experimented a bit and found the spice combination I like best. You can adjust/add/delete items as you like. Except for the turmeric. It’s what makes Golden Milk…..golden.
