Spiced Chaga Golden Milk

Spiced Chaga Golden Milk

I love golden milk on occasion.  It is so anti-inflammatory, calming, I love the earthiness of turmeric and sometimes it’s just nice to have a thicker drink!

Occasionally I’ll throw in some cinnamon or something but recently a friend introduced me to a hand scrawled “not recipe” a friend had given to her which was basically turmeric and a bunch of spice options.  Like, dump the cupboard in.  I decided to take it one step further as I love my mushrooms and added some lovely chaga, lion’s mane and dōTERRA On Guard.  I have fiddled with this and used both organic spices and essential oils and I find you can do either.  The spices leave you more silt in the bottom of the cup whereas the ingestible essential oils leave the drink with a cleaner mouthfeel… but you must control your drops!  I get my organic spices from Azure Standard & Misfits Market.  I have included the bulk of the ingredients to this recipe in my Wellevate Dispensary here.

Turmeric & chaga are both great as gut healing tonics because of their anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and potent healing properties… and one search of ncbi articles will pull up a host of benefits.  For an easier read, check out Dr. Axe’s articles here for turmeric, and here for chaga.

Here is my recipe + optional add ins!

Spiced Golden Milk Latte 💛

Brenna May
I love my occasional golden milk latte and it is so good for reducing inflammation and just when you want a thicker drink! But the other day my friend Heather shared her “not recipe” for spicy golden milk and I have been playing with it since. I love it with the addition of Chaga! So yummy!
