This week Sarah Munro (the heroine in ONE DARK WISH, book 2 in the Amazon Bestselling Deadly Force series), has shared her recipe for turmeric milk, also known as Golden Milk.

Golden Milk originated in India centuries ago, but even colonists in 18th century America knew of the powerful immunity-building affects of turmeric (due to the anti-inflammatory properties of curcumin found in turmeric). The cinnamon and ginger also add antimicrobial properties that are great for an immune boost in the middle of winter. In this updated version, Sarah combines coconut milk and almond milk to make this drink a super creamy holiday treat.

Sarah Munro’s Golden Milk


  • 1 1/2 cups light coconut milk (canned is best)
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk 
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger 
  • 1 whole cinnamon stick
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon raw honey
  • Ground cinnamon for garnish


  • In a small saucepan, stir together the coconut milk, almond milk, ground turmeric, ground ginger, cinnamon stick, coconut oil, black pepper, and honey.
  • Whisk constantly over a warm heat and bring to near boil. But do NOT boil.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and adjust the flavor by adding more honey or extra ground cinnamon. Remove the cinnamon stick and discard.
  • Serve with a dash of ground cinnamon on top. This makes two mugs.

It is important to do your due diligence before foraging, harvesting, and/or consuming any type of medicinal plant.

  • If you are taking any medications, talk to your doctor about any potential drug interactions.
  • If you are allergic to anything, make sure whatever you are foraging is not in the same family. Example: While dandelions are typically considered safe, those who are allergic to ragweed, latex, daisies, or any other plants in the same or similar families, may not be able to consume dandelion.

Always research potential side effectsdosage recommendations, and how to properly prepare and consume each medicinal plant.

Always make sure you are foraging what you believe to be. Fully prepare and study the anatomy before harvesting wild plants.

Always make sure your kitchen/work area is clean and that all materials are sterilized.

Do not forage plants from areas that have been sprayed within the past 2 years at the very least.
