Golden Milk to Promote a Good Night's Sleep


I'm often asked about Golden Milk, a traditional Ayurvedic remedy. It's a nourishing, warming drink to help promote a good night's sleep. When at Blue Spirit Costa Rica leading the Yoga and Wellness Rejuvenation Retreats, I was delighted they offered it at the cafe this year, and I had it most evenings on my way down to bed.

In a saucepan, warm 1/2 to one cup organic unsweetened almond or coconut milk, or grass fed milk if you tolerate dairy.

Add 1/8 teaspoon each: organic turmeric powder, powdered ginger and cinnamon.

Optional - add 1/2 teaspoon raw honey (add when the milk is cool enough to drink. Do NOT boil raw honey).

A shortcut is to make a batch of this Immunity Paste (which you can take on its own as well). Blend 1/2 teaspoon paste in 1/2 cup  to one cup unsweetened organic coconut or almond milk.

Into 1/2 cup raw local honey, blend the following spices and store in a glass jar:

  • 4-5 tablespoons organic ground turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon organic ground ginger

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper.

OR Take 1/2 teaspoon of the mixture on its own.
