Inspired by Andrew Weil's Golden Milk Recipe and a tip about adding soaked dates from my friend Didi
Recipe type: Beverage
Cuisine: Indian, healthy, vegan, ayurvedic
Serves: About 2 cups
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond-coconut milk (or other dairy free milk)
  • 3-6 pitted dates
  • 1½ teaspoons finely grated ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated turmeric root
  • Cinnamon for garnish
  1. Soak the dates in very hot water for 20 minutes
  2. Bring all ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan and lower to a simmer for 10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove all solids. Pour the milk into a blender and add the soaked dates to taste (4-5 gives a subtle sweetness, use more or less to taste). Blend until completely smooth. Serve hot in your favorite mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.
