Almond Milk – Almond milk is an excellent source of vitamin E and for the empowerment of your muscles. I highly encourage you to use it in your golden milk. It gives your drink a creamy texture and a yummy nutty flavor. But you can also substitute it with cow milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, oat milk, or any other you like.
Almond Flower – Almond flour contains a good amount of protein and fiber which is why it is very beneficial and healthy to use in this wholesome milk. It protects your body from damage and proves to be the best healer for the human body. If you don’t have almond flour in your pantry then cashew flour will be the best alternate for your nutritious golden milk.
Turmeric – Turmeric has uncountable health benefits and it’s an important ingredient of this recipe that you can never skip. Turmeric gives out a pretty golden color to this milk adding in so many medicinal properties like:
- it gives quick relief from pain
- it decreases the chances of cancer
- It helps in getting rid of acne
- It is so good for the health of your brain and heart
- work as good medicine for you if you’re under weather or facing any viral infection
- It boosts up your immune system making you feel fit and healthy and so much more.
Cinnamon Powder – Cinnamon Powder adds in a bit of sweet and woody flavor with a little spicier kick and is so good for sore throat, blood pressure, and diabetes. It is also considered the best component to provide relief from digestive distresss. If you love the taste of cinnamon, go and check my cinnamon roll recipe.
Ground Ginger – Ground Ginger is a very essential ingredient for stress, lung disease, and heart disease. It adds a spicy and pungent punch to golden milk. Some of the people are not used to it as it has a bit harder taste as compared to fresh ginger. So they can use a bit o fresh ginger and strain it afterward and can also skip this ingredient.
Other Spices – Besides all these, I have used peppers for taste, nutmeg to add in nutty and slightly sweet flavor plus it is known for calming the nervous system and improving blood circulation, and ground cloves. All of these are well combined in a single glass of milk giving you the best solution for so many problems and your good health and immune system.
