5-Ingredient Golden Milk Concentrate
Simple to make ahead, 5-Ingredient Golden Milk Concentrate is packed with nourishing ingredients and is so delicious!
- ⅔ cup full-fat coconut milk from a can*
- 2 teaspoons turmeric
- 2-4 tablespoons raw honey**
- ⅛ teaspoon Himalayan pink salt or sea salt
- ⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon MCT oil*** optional
- Cinnamon and nutmeg to taste optional
Blend or whisk all the ingredients together until well combined. Store, covered, for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
When ready to serve, whisk 3-4 tablespoons concentrate together with 1 cup milk.****
Serve warm or chilled.
*If the coconut cream has separated from the water, whisk everything back together prior to measuring. I prefer full-fat coconut milk for this recipe, though you can substitute lite if you prefer.
**Use maple syrup for a vegan option. Adjust the amount of honey to taste.
***MCT oil is a type of coconut oil. MCTs are medium-chain triglycerides, a form of saturated fatty acid that some studies have shown to have health benefits and are often missing in the traditional western diet. There's a link to the kind I use in the post, but they are totally optional. MCT oil is available in most natural food stores and online.
****Stir the Golden Milk Concentrate into any type of milk you prefer (e.g., almond, rice, hemp, dairy).
Serve the Golden Milk warm or over ice.
Add a few tablespoons of the Concentrate into your favorite smoothie.
