Turmeric has many anti-inflammatory and immune support benefits. Turmeric tea, or Golden Milk, is a great way to experience these benefits in a tasty way.
Turmeric is one of the hottest supplements out there right now. It’s no wonder since turmeric root has been used by many cultures for thousands of years because of its wonderful anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.
I most often use turmeric when I’m making Indian food or when I need to color something yellow naturally. However, I have been looking for more ways to work it into our diet to get the health benefits that turmeric offers. I try to add plenty of immune boosting herbs into our diets, especially during the winter when so many bugs are going around the schools.
One of the yummiest ways I’ve found to enjoy turmeric is with Turmeric Tea (often referred to as Golden Milk). I typically don’t like the taste of turmeric on its own, but it tastes really great in coconut milk with the combination of ingredients in turmeric tea.
While you can drink it any time of day, it’s amazing to drink turmeric tea before bed because it also helps to relax your body so you can get great sleep and an immune boost while you’re at it.

Dairy Free Turmeric Milk Recipe
- Place all of your ingredients except the raw honey into a small sauce pan. Whisk to combine over low heat. It won’t look golden right away, but the color will come through as the turmeric tea simmers.
- Bring your turmeric tea almost to a simmer, then allow the turmeric tea to simmer for about 15-20 minutes, whisking frequently. You want to really allow the spices to infuse into the a2 milk.
- Strain the ginger out of the turmeric tea then add the raw honey and a dash of cinnamon.
- It’s best to drink before bed, but you can enjoy turmeric tea anytime.
