Whole30 Golden Turmeric Milk
This recipe was first appeared on Whole30recipes social media channel during my guest post week in January 2018.
I omitted adding any sweeteners (including dates) to make the beverage Whole30 compliant. I was so happy to receive the official go-ahead from Whole30 before sharing this recipe on their channel.
Because turmeric is fat-soluble, coconut oil helps our bodies to absorb. Black pepper also makes the curcumin in turmeric more bio available so don’t skip these two ingredients!
I used a milk frother to make my Whole30 Golden Turmeric Milk extra frothy smooth but a few extra whisk will do the same trick.
In the recipe below I used both light coconut milk from a can and almond milk to create a more complex flavor. If you are short on ingredients use only coconut milk. And if you want a lighter taste, coconut milk from a milk carton will give you a lighter flavor.
Hot and cold
Since this Whole30 Golden Turmeric Milk recipe was first shared in January, I made it a hot beverage. But it’s great for cold drinks too. Just pour it over a cup of ice cubes for a lovely iced cold Golden Turmeric Milk in hot summer !
