Golden Milk Recipe.
1 cup of natural organic milk (use plant based if possible);
1/2 cup of warm water;
1/4 tsp of each of the spices: turmeric, ginger (can use freshly sliced), cumin (originally is not in the recipe);
1 green cardamom bean, broken (or powder);
a pinch of freshly grounded black pepper;
1 anis star, broken;
Optionally you can add some honey, vanilla and, if using plant-based milk, add some fat to it (coconut oil or ghee).
I also add some natural cocoa powder at the end ( it’s nice!)
Combine all the ingredients (apart from coconut oil or ghee) in a stainless steel saucepan and bring them to simmer for about 5 min, stirring all the time. Use low heat. Strain it into a cup with a sieve if using whole spices.
Add coconut oil or ghee.
