Turmeric milk


2 people made this

About this recipe: Fresh turmeric root, grated ginger and almond milk create a soothing golden milk that's better for you than a cup of hot chocolate! It's not as spicy as the traditional turmeric milk known as Haldi Ka Doodh but it's still a great way to introduce more turmeric into your diet. Any milk or milk alternative will do here. Agave nectar can be used in place of honey for a vegan drink.

Serves: 1 

  • 1 (4cm) piece fresh turmeric root, peeled and grated
  • 1 (4cm) piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 250ml almond milk
  • 1 pinch ground turmeric
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:15min 

  1. Combine turmeric root, ginger root and honey together in a bowl, crushing the turmeric and ginger as much as possible.
  2. Heat almond milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once small bubbles begin to form around the edges, reduce heat to low. Transfer about 2 tablespoon milk to turmeric mixture to allow mixture to soften and honey to melt into a paste-like mixture.
  3. Mix the turmeric paste into milk in the saucepan; raise temperature to medium-low and cook, stirring continuously, until fully combined. Blend with an immersion blender for a smooth texture.
  4. Pour turmeric tea into a mug and top with ground turmeric and cinnamon.


Pregnant or nursing women, young children or diabetics should consult their doctor before consuming turmeric.
