My hot drink of choice is usually chamomile tea but every so often I fancy something a little richer and more satisfying. This is a great little recipe to knock up when you want a quick pick-me-up or soothing brew. If you’ve introduced black pepper, you may like to add a small twist into the pan. But don’t worry if you haven’t, there are plenty of healing ingredients that are sure to do the job in next to no time.

I prefer to drink this immediately after blending but have also been known to pour some into a flask and take it out on a day trip. I love having a brisk walk, followed by a cup of piping hot golden milk once I’ve got back to the car. Call it a nice reward!

    Do you know how well leftovers store in the fridge? I’d love to have this for breakfast in the morning, but making a large batch ahead of time sounds better than doing it in the a.m.

    • Hi Sarah. I’ve always drunk this straight away, but personally I wouldn’t keep it any longer than 3 days.

  • Tracy Taylor says

    WOW this looks amazing! I bet it would be awesome in the AM on the long commute to work in place of coffee. I quit coffee 2 months ago and feel SO much better. But do kinda miss the morning routine. I will try this. Thanks!

  • Laura says

    This is great! I love the flavor combination. Better than the traditional AIP Golden Milk recipes I’ve tried. I think this will be my new autumn drink. Thanks for sharing!

    • So glad you like it. I need to make it again, now that it’s getting cooler. Thanks for the reminder!

  • Maddie says

    Just made this. I didn’t have ginger but it was still DELICIOUS!!! Thanks for this awesome recipe!

  • Lynne says

    I just made this and it is delicious, very comforting and felt like a treat. Thank you!

  • Brooke says

    I love this!! (Although I haven’t tried it with the orange yet.) I’ve been using dates to sweeten my golden milk (and other drinks) for years, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen another recipe that does.
    By the way, this blog is blessedly clear of content-covering videos and obnoxious in-your-face ads, and I appreciate that so, so much! ❤️

      Glad you enjoyed it Brooke! And we are so happy you noticed that we lack ads, we work very hard to bring in blog-supporting income from other means so we can keep the look simple and ad-free.
