Golden Milk Recipe/Benefits & Variations for Each Dosha

Do you feel tired, do you have acne problems, do you want to lose some extra pounds or do you just want to relieve your body and detoxify it? Then you ought to prepare a delicious Golden milk. It's done in just a few minutes and your body will thank you for it! 

Nowadays we are very busy and people often forget about taking care of their body. Not only from the outside, but mainly from the inside. Maybe that's why many of them feel tired for unknown reasons, have digestive problems or have difficulty breathing. So it's time to stop for a while and give your body a good dose of antioxidants, which will rid it of toxic substances and relieve various ailments. The ideal helper in detoxifying the body is the so-called golden milk. Not only does it taste great, but at the same time the concoction is beneficial in an almost miraculous way. 

Elixir of health

The history of golden milk, or the elixir of health, dates back to ancient Indian Ayurveda. It is basically a mixture of turmeric and milk. Turmeric is a yellow spice that is known for its healing effects and high content of antioxidants. It strengthens the immune system and has been shown to reduce inflammation in the body. According to some studies, even this "golden miracle" prevents the growth of metastases. When turmeric is combined with milk, a delicious drink is created, which is guaranteed to strengthen the body and spirit.


Thanks to its antioxidant effect, golden milk can significantly improve the condition of your skin, especially if you suffer from acne or eczema, for example. The effects of the health elixir can be further enhanced when applied directly to the affected skin. However, skin healing is just one of the few effects of this amazing drink. It can also support digestion, soothe abdominal cramps and bloating, and also improve the balance of bacteria in the gut. 

Turmeric is also known to speed up metabolism. In addition to the fact that this drink perfectly detoxifies the body, it can also help you lose some extra pounds. 

Optional Doshic Variations


This drink is naturally Vata-reducing, no changes are needed!


Overall this drink recipe is Pitta-pacifying; however, some Pitta types may need to reduce or eliminate the more heating spices such as cinnamon, black pepper, and ginger. Honey is also heating and can be replaced with maple syrup. To enhance the Pitta-soothing nature of this drink and increase its overall health benefits, 1/2 teaspoon of Shatavari powder can be added instead of the Ashwagandha.


This drink recipe is considered increasing to Kapha dosha, although some changes can be applied to help reduce the heavy, viscous nature of this drink.  Cow dairy should be avoided and replaced with either goat milk, almond milk, or hemp milk.  If this is still too heavy for Kapha, then the milk should be cut in half and replaced with water (i.e. 1/2 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup of water) and the ghee should be omitted.  The spices should be increased to help spark the digestive fire and reduce the Kapha-increasing qualities of this beverage.  If one makes these changes and still experiences symptoms such as congestion, cough, or a coated tongue after drinking, then this drink should be avoided altogether.
