Simple Vegan Golden Milk

If you’ve never tried Golden Milk, you’re totally missing out! It’s creamy, decadent, and comforting. This warming drink is a great way to enjoy one of the most anti-inflammatory spices out there, turmeric.

Native to India, turmeric comes from the dried root of the Curcuma longa plant. It gives curry its signature colour, but don’t be scared! It has a similar spice level to cinnamon.

Plant Power

Turmeric is one of the most medically studied spices, with thousands of studies referencing turmeric. Many studies have shown that turmeric’s active compound, curcumin, is more beneficial at reducing pain and inflammation than pharmaceuticals.

Here are a few of turmerics amazing benefits:

  • Powerful anti-inflammatory
  • Soothes digestive issues like constipation, IBS, and IBD
  • Prevents and kills cancer cells
  • Reduces arthritic pain
  • Detoxifies the body
  • Effective in managing depression
  • Naturally promotes weight loss

Warming + Nourishing

Turmeric on its own is incredibly nourishing to the body, but the additional spices and optional boosters really amp up the nutrition factor.

  • Cinnamon, ginger, and cardamom are not only warming to the body but also boost the immune system and soothe the digestive system.
  • Hemp hearts provide protein, good essential fats, and fibre.
  • Coconut oil is a source of good fats that the body uses as fuel.

I love pairing this with my Super Chewy Paleo Cookies for the perfect afternoon snack (or healthy breakfast!). Try it out and post your Golden Milk on Instagram – don’t forget to tag me @katiestewartwellness so I can see your creation!

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

After years of dealing cystic breakouts, I cleared up my skin for good by fixing my gut, liver and hormones. I went back to school for nutrition and then said seeya later to my job in television. I launched an online nutrition business (before working from home was a thing) so I could help as many women as possible feel confident AF in their own skin, too.

Now my skin is completely blemish-free, I don’t even have to wear makeup. I don’t even break out around my cycle. I really owe it to Katie for her knowledge, and guidance during this clear skin journey. Thank you, Katie!!

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
