Golden Milk with Turmeric, Ginger, and Cracked Black Pepper

Posted byLori Posted onMay 20, 2021 Comments0


This week we’re taking a break from the booze and adding in some much needed nutrition (to go along with whatever I’ll drink this weekend… the break was for blogging, not actual drinking. I may have to make myself a Paper Plane when I’m done with writing this post).

If your beverage tally is anything like mine, you’re at about 78 unhealthy adult beverages alternate beverages for every 1 healthy beverage. So maybe try this very pretty, delicious, nourishing drink before your next… errr… fun drink. 😉 


In my days of vegan-eating, I used to make this drink all the time. There’s some just so comforting about a warm beverage to sip on, especially when it has such grounding spices like ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper.

This is quite delightful with oat milk and feel free to adjust the spices to make this perfect for you – more cinnamon never hurt anyone. 

This is a true fact.

And maybe after I enjoy one of these tonight, I’ll add in a little spiced rum to keep things extra fun. Would that be then called a Rum Spiced Golden? Maybe a Golden Spiked Rum? I dunno, it sounds delicious though!



Golden Milk with Turmeric, Ginger, and Cracked Black Pepper

If you're looking for a warm and comforting drink that's caffeine free and actually provides healing nutrients, this is your cup of tea! 😉
With warming turmeric, ginger, and freshly cracked black pepper then slightly sweetened with honey, this makes for a truly nutritious and healing beverage.
