If you’re a fan of overnight oats, you’re definitely going to want to try making it with this beautiful and tasty upgrade.
Making overnight oats is the speediest way to ensure eating a delicious breakfast remains part of your weekday groove. It’s easy to prep, even easier to devour, and leaves us feeling full until lunch time. So whether you’re dying to try this breakfast craze, or you’re already hooked (like us), you simply must try making them with golden milk.
What exactly is golden milk?
Glad you asked! Made with turmeric (amongst other things), the dairy-free milk is a vibrant, yellowy-gold color that makes for a wonderful #HelloFreshPics photo-op. Just saying…
But aside from being absolutely beautiful, golden milk is also nutrient-packed, with benefits that include lowering blood sugar, and helping the body with inflammation. And bonus points, everything the milk touches instantly tastes delectable.
How to make golden milk
- 6 Cups Dairy-Free Milk (i.e. almond, coconut, oat)
- 2 Teaspoons Turmeric*
- ½-1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger, to taste
- ½-1 Teaspoon Cinnamon, to taste
- 2 Tablespoons Maple Syrup (or Agave Nectar)
- Pour 6 cups dairy-free milk into a large carafe or bowl. Option to mix two different types of milk as the base (i.e. 3 cups coconut milk with 3 cups almond milk)
- Stir in turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
- Enjoy, hot or cold!
*Turmeric has a very strong flavor, so if you’re new to it, we suggest using 1/2 teaspoon. On the other hand, if you’re a fan, consider adding a pinch of black pepper to your blend—it helps the body absorb the nutrients.

- Combine golden milk, oats, and chia seeds in a mason jar. Give it a good shake and place in the fridge overnight (at least 5 hours).
- Once set, top off your oats with whatever you have in the kitchen. We love apple slices, blueberries, and coconut flakes, but to each their own!
- Enjoy, then try a new topping combo the next morning.
Using golden milk as a base for our oats is one way to enjoy the creamy treat, but we even love sipping it hot, adding it to coffee, and blending in smoothies. If you’re feeling inspired by its deliciousness, share how else you use it in the comments.
