Servings2 medium mugs


  • 2 cups soy milk (or other dairy-free milk)
  • 1 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon (I use Ceylon)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup (depending on desired sweetness)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of black pepper


  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger (or freshly grated), cardamom


  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, add all ingredients and whisk to combine.
  • Heat for about 5-6 minutes until milk is hot, whisking occasionally.
  • Take care not to boil. Only lightly simmer until the spices are dissolved.
  • Carefully pour into a mug and enjoy.


Milk: I use plain, unsweetened soy milk, so adjust vanilla and maple syrup to taste if you’re using a sweetened or flavored milk.
Black pepper: The pinch of black pepper is said to aid in the effectiveness of turmeric.
Turmeric: Turmeric can stain, so pour and use cautiously.
