Golden Milk has been around since ancient times. Especially, in India, in olden times it was used as medicine because of its antibiotic properties. Even today Golden milk (haldi ka doodh) is given to people who are recovering from illness or any bruises. Turmeric has many health benefits.

At this time of the year the temperatures go up and down quite a bit. 2 days back it was chilly and we were snuggling under a warm blanket. Today it’s nice and toasty outside. The drawback about this weather is that it brings a lot of viral infections and allergies. But thanks to this golden milk with root turmeric as the main ingredient we can boost our immune system and also protect ourselves from many infections.
I would highly recommend using fresh root turmeric for this recipe to benefit the true anti – inflammatory properties from this golden milk. Also, by using fresh root ginger the taste enhances for this golden milk. Lastly, make sure to add a pinch of crushed black pepper to even out the sweetness. Black pepper also helps with cold, cough and congestion.
Ginger Golden Milk is super easy to make and is desirable for any season. If desired you may use any sweetener of your choice in this recipe in place of brown sugar. I personally like the thickness and the sweet flavor of brown sugar. Therefore, I always use brown sugar to sweeten my golden milk. However, maple syrup would also blend well in this recipe.
