An after school treat snack of golden milk makes for a calmed, satiated (but definitely turmeric-stained) child and mama. I mix up turmeric (both dried powder and a few squirts of our fresh turmeric extract), our ashwagandha extract, our astragalus extract, a little slippery elm powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves, black pepper, coconut oil, and raw milk and honey to make a rich, satisfying, and deeply nourishing beverage that feels like a meal and is packed with nutrients and herbal allies. ⁠

You can make up the powder in big batches and then just add a little to the wet ingredients (milk, honey, extracts, coconut oil) to cut down on prep time. It's really no more involved than mixing up some hot cocoa, but so tremendously beneficial on a systemic anti-inflammatory and digestive level. The combination of ashwagandha, turmeric, and ginger - synergistically with the other kitchen cupboard herbs - is a powerful fortifier of the nervous and digestive systems.
