Have you jumped on the golden milk trend yet? If not, this is the perfect — and aruguably, most delicious — way to do so.
For the unfamiliar, golden milk is a milk-based beverage enhanced with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, honey, and just a pinch of black pepper. It's traditionally served warm, as a tea, but lately it's been reinvented in practically every way you can imagine, from ice cream to hot cocoa to overnight oats. So why not a milkshake?
When you blend vanilla ice cream into the mix, this cool and extra-creamy take on golden milk is definitely a treat, but a treat that feels a little more virtuous, thanks to antioxidant-rich turmeric. Which means, of course, you can enjoy it as a mid-afternoon sip — but we wouldn't judge you if you blended it up for breakfast instead.
3/4 to 1 cup whole milk
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
Pinch of ground black pepper
1 pint vanilla ice cream
Put 2 pint glasses in the freezer to chill.
Place 3/4 cup of the milk, honey, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and pepper in a blender and blend to combine.
Add the ice cream and stir it into the milk mixture by hand. Blend thoroughly. If it’s too thick, add up to 1/4 cup more milk and blend again. Pour into the chilled glasses and enjoy immediately.
