Ingredients to make turmeric milk
Milk: I use whole milk.
Turmeric powder: It is easily available in all Indian grocery stores and supermarkets.
Black pepper: I use crushed black pepper here.
Honey: Golden milk is sweetened with honey.
To make vegan golden milk, you may replace it with almond milk or any dairy-free milk. However, take care not to boil the almond milk like regular milk. Replace honey with jaggery or raw sugar.
Traditionally, turmeric root is used to make golden milk latte. However, I am using turmeric powder. If you use turmeric roots, let them steep in the milk for at least 5 minutes.
Other spices can also be added to make masala golden milk. Cinnamon, cardamom, and ground ginger go well with it. Check out this recipe to make delicious badam doodh.
