Healing Cashew Golden Milk – #turmericmilk

Healing Cashew Golden Milk is a powerful natural healer that energizes the body, calms digestive system and immensely effective to cure cold-cough/body ache.  Also known as Haldi Doodh in India or popularly known as #GoldenMilk / #TurmericMilk and is one of the most famous drinks of Ayurveda. turmeric golden milk recipe

I’ve been wanting to post this recipe for the longest time and it kept pushing back because of something or the other but that’s it – I HAD to share it TODAY.

Many of my friends have requested this one special as the Healing Cashew Golden Milk is the most effective and quick remedy for the seasonal or long-term Cold n Cough.

It especially comes in handy, when you have coughed so much that even a thought of coughing again gives you chills as every bone and your throat hurts.

I remember my Mom, making this Turmeric Cashew Milk for all of us especially during winter as a preventive drink (from cold).

And this is truly her recipe and I feel thrilled about sharing it with you’ll.

In those days, she literally used to make cashew milk at home and then she would mix in the other ingredients and cook everything for a good 1-2 hrs.

There are 3 main healing ingredients in this Recipe:



Ginger (very small amount).



is considered the most powerful spice in Indian spices and it’s not just because of it’s taste/golden color but because of its medicinal property.

It’s Anti-inflammatory (It helps the body fight foreign invaders and also has a role in repairing damage).

It helps boost the body’s own antioxidant enzymes (to fight infections) and brain function hence help in preventing many common to serious ailments.

It also helps prevent seasonal depression….I mean I can go on as the list of benefits are almost endless.

It’s also one of the most potent ingredients in many Ayurvedic medicines/solutions.

The ONLY thing to REMEMBER:

‘Turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor hence if you use too much, the recipe would end up tasting bitter and you would feel very hot as well. The KEY is moderation.


Similarly, Cinnamon and Ginger also have ‘anti-inflammatory’ and healing property hence this milk mixture is almost like liquid gold and is famously known as Golden Milk.

Now, in this mixture of spice blend, I’ve also included Cardamom which not only enhances the taste (yummmmm).

But it helps fight free-radicals, it helps heat up the body and loosen mucus (tough cold n cough) and also gives you great breath 🙂

I’m using Cashew Milk (store-bought) but you can use any kind of plain milk/ almond/coconut, almost any kind except chocolate or fruit-flavored milk.

The process is pretty simple and takes about 10-15 minutes (depending on your choice).

You just put everything together in one pot and steep the spices in low heat till the mixture thickens.

Then strain the milk into a jar or air-tight glass bottle and you can store this upto 1-2 days (I prefer making a fresh batch everytime).

You can add your choice of sweetener or can even add honey (because of its healing properties) …some people even add jaggery to it.


* Enjoy the Healing Cashew Golden Milk & Stay Warm n Healthy *

    Yummy! I have never tried golden milk and your recipe seems so finger-licking, Molly! Can’t wait to give it a try! 😉

    • Molly Kumar January 27, 2018 (4:02 am)

      Thanks Agnes, I’m so glad you like it. It’s really simple n yummmmm!

  • Pam August 9, 2016 (5:49 pm)

    If using powdered cardamom for cashew turmeric warm milk, how much do I use for the 2 serving recipe? Also, if using whole green pod, do you crush to remove seeds and then crush the seeds to add only seed powder to milk? Can you eat the pod or seed or do you strain them? Thank you much!

    • Molly Kumar August 9, 2016 (7:13 pm)

      Hi Pam, I am so glad you’re thinking of making the Turmeric Milk and here are my suggestions:
      Cardamom Powder: you can use 2-3 Pinch. It is used to flavor and give a sweet scent to the dish. If you like a strong cardamom taste, you can add more.
      Whole Green Cardamom: you can crush to remove pods, then further crush the pods to a fine powder and add accordingly. Some people like the taste of whole pods/slightly crushed pods too.

      You can definitely eat the pods as they are completely edible. Keep visiting us – Hugs, Molly

    I’ve never tried tumeric before (at least not that I know) but your timing is perfect. Everyone in my office seems to be coming down with a cold and I’m refusing to get sick right before I go away on my winter holiday! I’m going to give this a shot as a preventative measure.

    • Molly Kumar January 26, 2016 (6:49 am)
