This golden milk recipe suggests adding 1 tsp of turmeric to 2 cups of the milk of choice, either dairy milk or a dairy-free alternative, such as coconut milk or almond milk. Try adding a pinch of ground black pepper, which could enhance the effects of the turmeric. Adding black pepper to golden milk may help the body absorb turmeric. A review of curcumin and health says that a compound found in black pepper can help increase the bioavailability of turmeric by up to 2,000%. Many recipes also suggest that adding extra fat, such as coconut or almond oil to the milk, may help the body absorb the turmeric better.
People can also add half a teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 1 tsp of honey, or 1 tsp of maple syrup for taste.
You can either drink golden milk or use it as a base for other recipes, such as soups or dressings.
