Now that the weather is cold and the days are shorter, it’s time to enjoy cozy hot beverages like golden milk! Have you ever tried this traditional Ayurvedic tonic? It’s a wonderfully soothing treat to enjoy before bedtime to help you drift off to a good night’s sleep. It’s easy to make, is completely caffeine free and has tons of nutritional benefits.
  • 2½ cups water
  • ½ cup plant based milk, unsweetened (coconut milk is perfect for this)
  • 4 Tablespoons Octonuts Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 2 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • Pinch black pepper
  • 1” fresh ginger, grated
  • ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg, ground
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup + more as desired
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  1. Heat the water and plant based milk in a medium saucepan. Add the Octonuts Vanilla Protein Powder, turmeric powder, black pepper, fresh grated ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup, and coconut oil. Whisk until everything is well combined and simmer on low for 5 minutes. Add more plant based milk if it’s too thick for your taste, and adjust the sweetness to your taste as well.
  2. To make it a little frothy and extra creamy, mix it for a minute in your blender for about 10-20 seconds before serving. If it’s hot make sure that you have the lid of the blender firmly attached and start blending at a low speed so you don’t have any of the hot drink exploding out of the blender. Pour into 2 mugs and sprinkle with black pepper and cinnamon on top.
