Golden Milk - Turmeric Milkshake (Haldi Doodh)

You already know that I consume turmeric daily for all of its health benefits. But recently, I have found an even better way to get my daily dose of turmeric in the form of a delicious, creamy milkshake! This golden milk turmeric milkshake, is the best thing I have made in 2021, and so I have to share the recipe with you, immediately.

Haldi doodh (literally turmeric milk in Hindi) is an Ayurvedic drink that is so popular in India. Anytime anything is wrong from a cold to any ailment, haldi doodh is the first thing Indian mothers and grandmothers will suggest. Haldi doodh is traditionally made from whole milk, and is a warm drink, brewed on the stove. Soon, word spread west and cafes capitalized on this soothing and healing drink making it common to find Golden Milk Lattes pretty much everywhere.

But this recipe is different. This Golden Milk Turmeric Milkshake is cold, refreshing, subtly spiced and absolutely delicious. Freeze it, and you got yourself some yummy ice cream, make it as per this recipe then you got yourself a brilliant milkshake, heck, you want it warm? Then simply heat it up!

To make this golden milk turmeric milkshake, you need to make yourself some homemade, creamy cashew milk. You can find my recipe for that here. You can use store bought milk for this as well, but the richness from homemade cashew milk, is something else! Once your milk is ready, you simply add a banana, maple syrup and some spices then blend together.

Once ready, I add some ice to the blender to make it cold. If you use frozen banana, there is no need to add the ice, especially in these months. Then when ready to serve, I topped it with some rose petals. You can dust some of the spices on top as well, or leave it naked - it really doesn't matter.
