  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) light coconut milk (DIY Coconut Milk) (canned is best, but carton works too)
  • 1 1/2 cups (360 ml) unsweetened plain almond milk (DIY or store-bought)
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger (see notes for fresh*)
  • 1 cinnamon stick (or 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon | I prefer the stick!)
  • 1 Tbsp (15 g) coconut oil
  • Pinch ground black pepper
  • Sweetener of choice (i.e. maple syrup, coconut sugar, or stevia to taste)


  1. To a small saucepan, add coconut milk, almond milk, ground turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon stick, coconut oil, black pepper, and sweetener of choice (I usually add 1 Tbsp (15 ml) maple syrup).
  2. Whisk to combine and warm over medium heat. Heat until hot to the touch but not boiling – about 4 minutes – whisking frequently.
  3. Turn off heat and taste to adjust flavor. Add more sweetener to taste or more turmeric or ginger for intense spice + flavor.
  4. Serve immediately, dividing between two glasses and leaving the cinnamon stick behind. Best when fresh, though leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. Reheat on the stovetop or microwave until hot.


*If using fresh ginger, I suggest grating 1-2 Tbsp into the mixture and then using a fine mesh strainer when serving to strain out the ginger for creamy texture.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate for 1 of 2 servings calculated without sweetener.
