A Healthy Alternative to Coffee (Spiced Turmeric Drink)

Do you drink coffee?

I love coffee :) However, I do find that if I'm stressed or anxious, it helps to cut down on how much of it I drink.

If you're looking for a healthy, vegan, caffeine-free alternative to your morning coffee, try this delicious Golden Warrior recipe (sometimes called spiced golden turmeric milk).

For the hot version of the Golden Warrior drink, heat everything on the stove until just before it boils. If making the cold version, mix everything together and shake in a sealed container, then pour over ice. Enjoy!

Golden Warrior
2 cups almond milk
2 tsp turmeric
1-2 tsp coconut sugar
1 tsp cardamom
Pinch of ground ginger (powdered)
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of cinnamon

I started drinking the Golden Warrior as part of a 3 day vegan cleanse, and actually found myself craving it more than my usual morning coffee. It's very satisfying as a warm drink, and refreshing when poured over ice (Ayurvedic practitioners recommend the heated version for maximum results). The turmeric in this recipe stimulates digestion, removes inflammation, and boost immunity during cold season. Highly recommend it!

What other coffee alternatives do you enjoy?
