This creamy Paleo Golden Milk Tea recipe is full of earthy turmeric and spicy black peppercorns with just a touch of sweetness that will satisfy your tea craving as well as keep you healthy.

What Is Golden Milk?

Many people think golden milk is a fad that was popular a few years ago. However, that is far from the truth.

In fact, golden milk is actually a traditional Indian drink that has been consumed for thousands of years.

In its simplest form, golden milk is basically hot milk that is infused with turmeric. However, I’ve added a few other ingredients to my Paleo Golden Milk Tea recipe to take the flavor from good to delicious.

Benefits of Golden Milk 

The healthy benefits attributed to golden milk are largely thanks to its main ingredient of turmeric, which is also what gives golden milk its deep yellow color.

  • Turmeric can help to soothe digestion. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric may help ease an irritated or inflamed digestive system.
  • Turmeric may also help protect against heartburn and ulcers.
  • Turmeric has been shown to ease joint pain as well as lessen the symptoms of arthritis. Furthermore, studies have shown that turmeric extract is more effective than ibuprofen for pain relief and has fewer side effects than ibuprofen as well.
  • Turmeric may also help treat skin conditions, such as acne and psoriasis.
  • Turmeric may improve memory as well as brain function
