Golden milk is a great way to take advantage of all the excellent spices that pair with milk. This recipe uses almonds and pumpkin seeds to create a balanced umami flavor with minimal sweetness. The key ingredient is turmeric, but other spices help round out the overall taste - you can exchange these with other favorites like nutmeg or even cayenne pepper for a unique take.
Yield: ~4 Cups
- 5 Cups Water
- 1/2 Cup Almonds, soaked
- 1/2 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
- 3 Tbsp Honey
- 1 Tsp Sea Salt
- 1 Tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2 Tbsp Ginger (If using fresh, this is 1/8th Cup Diced)
- 1 Tbsp Turmeric (If using fresh, this is 1/8th Cup Diced)
Measure out all ingredients. Wash, peel, and dice ginger and turmeric root until you have roughly 1/8th cup of diced pieces. Add water to the "Min" line in the base of the machine. Add diced turmeric, ginger, honey and other dry spices to the filter basket. Add raw almonds and pumpkin seeds to the filter basket, tilting sideways shaking while attaching to mix them up. Run your Almond Cow. Pour and enjoy! Golden milk makes an excellent drink for the end of a long day, or an even better popsicle.
