Launching The Autoimmune Academy | Professional Mentoring Program | Begins January 2024

Following on from the blog on Friday about the importance of spices in the healing kitchen, I wanted to share my new-and-improved recipe for the current internet favourite, golden milk aka turmeric latte. 

Greatly inspired to increase the spice content, I added in some extra warming and delicious spices to create a complex and comforting drink for the whole family to enjoy. 

I especially recommend this 30 minutes before bed at night. 

If you tolerate animal dairy, make this with full fat organic milk. I use coconut milk and love the flavour profile that adds too. This would also be delicious with cashew or macadamia milks, or your favourite non-dairy milk. 


  • 400ml of full fat coconut milk
  • 400ml of filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder or grated fresh root. 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger root, grated
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup or manuka honey


Place your milk into a saucepan on the stovetop. Add the rest of the ingredients, and slowly and gently allow the heat to rise and the spices to infuse. Don’t bring to the boil, just up to the suggestion of a simmer, stirring to blend all the spices. 

You can drink immediately, or turn off the heat and allow to sit for a while before bringing back up to heat before serving. Don’t forget to remove the star anise with a spoon or strainer! 

This is a drink for the whole family. My toddler loves her golden milk at night with mum and dad! My youngest has yet to master drinking from a straw, but she has a tiny sip from mine too.
