I love Golden Milk! While I tend to drink it in the evening to warm me up, I’ve found it’s just as good in the morning! This tasty breakfast is so addictive… It makes me even more excited to start my day. And, on top of that, this recipe is incredibly nutritious and healthy. Enjoy!
Good to know – Turmeric
Turmeric, also known as kinyit or kurkuma, is one of my very favorite spices (I’m sure you’ve noticed it in my recipes!). The turmeric root grows in Asia, mainly in India and southern China, where it’s generally used as a yellow food dye. It is, however, also known for its medicinal properties. The root cleanses the body, is a natural anti-inflammatory and helps heal skin inflammation caused by conditions like eczema.
Turmeric used to be impossible to find in Friesland… They didn’t even sell it at the Asian markets we frequented and my uncle didn’t carry it in his organic food store either. My mem had to do her utmost to find it, but when she did, our love affair with turmeric began.
I add it to curries, feel-good drinks, smoothies and the delicious oatmeal described below. I love it!
Approx 20 min.
2 days in an air-tight container om the fridge
50 g (1/2 cup) oatmeal
350 ml (1 ¼ cups) plant-based milk (I love oat milk and cashew milk)
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp cinnamon
a pinch of sea salt
¼ tsp ground cardamom
a pinch of black pepper
¼ tsp powdered ginger, or to taste
2 tsp honey (optional; or maple syrup (for a vegan option))
Pour the plant-based milk into a small pot and bring it to a boil at medium-high heat. Add the oatmeal and the remaining ingredients to the boiling plant-based milk, stirring well. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring regularly to ensure that the oatmeal doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot. Add a bit of extra water to the mixture if you find that your oatmeal is getting a bit too thick. Transfer to a bowl and enjoy!
