Gluten-free, silky smooth, rich, nutritious, and delicious, this golden milk will become your favorite way to end the day. Use full-fat dairy milk, unsweetened almond milk, or any plant-based alternative you desire. Be sure to add a couple of spoonfuls of healthy fat (like ghee, butter, or coconut oil) if your milk is low in fat. Turmeric is a must, but get creative by adding in as many or as few additional spices as you prefer. Use a whisk or milk frother to whip it up into a golden milk latte or gently stir to silky smoothness with a cinnamon stick. The possibilities are endless with this soothing cup of Sleepy Time Golden Milk!
