Golden Milk - The Key To A Good Night Sleep

I started making Golden Milk, which has the key powerful ingredient of turmeric. Turmeric literally is known to help almost everything. Here are just a few things that it can help with


  •  Anti-inflammatory 
  • Boosts immunity
  • Anti-cancer properties
  • Depression
  • Regulates blood pressure 
  • Improve memory
  • Gall-bladder
  • Improves IBS and IBD
  • Arthritis
  • Insomnia
  • Menopause
  • Reduces arsenic
  • The list goes on and on. Check out a huge list here with data to back it up.








When using turmeric the cucumin's bioavailabity (the magic inside the turmeric) 1000 times greater when black pepper is consumed during the same time. So please make sure you have black pepper when consuming turmeric. Like always with anything new, start small!

The golden milk I make consists of the ingredients below. With a busy household of 4 kids and a hubby I decided to purchase a turmeric mixture that already has black pepper and some other anti inflammatory ingredients. You can certainly make your own with the ingredients below, however I personally use Gaia Turmeric Boost restore, to have a slightly more Chai flavor in my Golden milk and it tastes amazing!

I make all of this in a pot on the stove. I bring it to a slight bowl and mix it well. Here's my concoction for a small cup for two

Water  8  oz
Hemp or Coconut Milk  8oz
Coconut oil  - 1 - 2 teaspoon
Turmeric & Black Pepper (from the turmeric boost) 2  tsp
Cinnamon  - sprinkle
Honey (added at the end)  1-2 tsp to taste


Since making this delicious Golden milk, my husband who normally wakes up every single night for a few hours has slept like a baby! Now asks me to make this for him 1-2 hours before bed and not only does he sleep through the night like a rock, it knocks him out and he wakes up with a ton of energy. If this can work for him, it can probably work for most people. LOL!

Here is a video recipe by Dr. Arjan Khalsa to show you how to make the paste and use this paste throughout the week, I suggest you watch. It's a bit different than how I make it but it it's perfect for those who already have the ingredients and are ready to make it now!






Cheers! Would love to hear how your Golden Milk turns out and see how you feel when implementing this wonderful beverage in to your life!
