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)  


  1. 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)
  2. Stir in turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon, and maple syrup.
  3. 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.

Where do you purchase your vegetables and meats and are they organic.

Jordan Schultz says:

Hi Ann! Our meat suppliers vary by week and region. While our ingredients are not typically organic, we personally take an on-site visit to every vendor we work with to ensure the operation is food safe and high quality. Our meats are primarily sourced domestically and are all natural. Our poultry suppliers have certified that the animals they supply us with are both antibiotic and hormone free. Our pork suppliers have certified that the animals they supply us with get the best treatment possible and are all hormone free.
