AIP Golden Milk

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins


  • 3 cups coconut milk (can substitute 1 cup coconut milk with 1 cup water)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons turmeric powder or 1 tablespoon grated turmeric root
  • 1.5 teaspoons ginger powder or 1 tablespoon grated ginger root
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon powder
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla powder (omit for AIP)
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • 3 teaspoons raw honey

Optional spices for additional flavour and health:

  • Pinch of nutmeg powder
  • Pinch of ground cardamom powder
  • Pinch of ground clove powder


  • When using fresh turmeric and ginger root, blend all the ingredients (except the honey) in a food processor and place in a saucepan to simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.
  • When using turmeric and ginger powder, no need to blend, just place all the ingredients (except the honey) in a saucepan and simmer for 10 – 15 minutes.
  • Add honey once golden milk is warm and stir to dissolve.
  • Strain through a small tea sieve, serve warm and enjoy!


Be sure to include the black pepper, as it contains a natural element called piperine, which is able to increase the absorption of curcumin by 2,000%!
Coconut milk can be substituted with a nut milk of choice.
Be sure to use organic turmeric powder, and not curry powder, as it contains minimal turmeric.
