Frothy Golden Milk Hot Chocolate is the perfect cozy drink for colder months. This nourishing drink has all of the goodness of immune boosting Golden Milk plus the creamy, chocolaty sweetness of the old time classic hot chocolate.
Who doesn't love a mug of good ole fashioned hot chocolate? It's a true nostalgic drink, one that pretty much everyone grew up drinking. There's just nothing like that hot, drinkable, creamy, chocolate. It's so good!
Even though hot chocolate is one of my all-time favorite warming drinks, I do like to switch it up from time to time. I love a glass of perfectly spiced chai tea on a chilly afternoon, or a bit of homemade spiced apple cider by a crackling fire.
And then there's Golden Milk. Have you ever had it before? It's so delicious!
Golden Milk has quickly become a popular drink, although it's a traditional drink that's been around forever. This warming drink gets its name “Golden” Milk from immune supporting turmeric, which has been used in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries in India.
There are so many health benefits of turmeric. It's a well-known antioxidant and is known for supporting the immune system, digestion, skin health, and so much more.
This beautiful, creamy drink gets its golden color from the turmeric. It has a little bit of black pepper, which might seem odd. But the black pepper is important because it's known to give turmeric the extra health boost it needs (source). It's also packed with ginger, another immune booster, and adds a wonderful sweet and spicy flavor.
Golden Milk and Hot Chocolate Go Perfectly Together!
Since both of these warming drinks are heavenly, I figured combing both would be a good idea.
Wow, I am so glad I did! The flavor of this drink is everything I imagined it would be. Sweet, creamy, chocolaty, hot, and spicy. Absolute bliss!
Not only does Golden Milk Hot Chocolate taste amazing, but it's nourishing too! Now that's a good reason to enjoy this drink, right?!
This delectable drink supports the immune system with turmeric and ginger, has omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin D and K plus CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) from grass-fed ghee/butter, and another extra supporting boost from grass-fed gelatin. SO much nourishing goodness, plus it tastes amazing!
Give all of this deliciousness a whirl in the blender and in no time you'll have the most beautiful, frothy foam topping your Golden Milk Hot Chocolate.
Make sure to enjoy some of this comforting drink during the holiday season and the colder months!

Frothy Golden Milk Hot Chocolate :: Dairy-Free Option
yield: approx. 3 servings
- 3 cups raw/organic/grass-fed milk or full-fat coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons cocoa or cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons raw honey or pure maple syrup
- 1-inch fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- Pinch Celtic sea salt
- Pinch finely ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon grass-fed ghee or grass-fed butter
- 2 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin – optional, but highly recommended
- Place all ingredients EXCEPT gelatin into a medium-size sauce pan. Slowly warm over medium-low heat for about 5-7 minutes (heat to your desired temperature). If you are using coconut milk, make sure you do not boil it, it tends to become thick and unpalatable when boiled. If you're using raw milk, you'll want to heat over a lower heat so you do not destroy the beneficial properties.
- Pour hot Golden Milk Hot Chocolate into a blender. Add gelatin. Immediately blend for about 15-20 seconds, until the gelatin has dissolved and is super frothy. [Note: Use CAUTION when using the blender, the hot chocolate is very hot and increases in volume when blending. Make sure to hold the lid on tight while blending or the hot air and liquid can escape making the lid pop off the blender.] If you're not using gelatin, it's still best to blend the Golden Milk Hot Chocolate so that the ghee/butter emulsifies and becomes frothy.
- Serve hot and enjoy immediately.
