Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk

Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk
Updated on October 11, 2017

In the fall, everywhere you go there is something infused with pumpkin spice, and it’s almost always accompanied by a generous amount of processed sugar. As strong believers in healthy sweets, we decided to go beyond the typical pumpkin spice latte by removing refined sugars and adding some of our favorite plant allies to an Ayurveda inspired golden milk.

From a traditional herbal medicine perspective, fall signifies both the end and beginning of a cycle. The end of summer, a yang season full of fiery energy and long hot days, and the beginning of autumn, a yin season which brings in cooling, restorative energy. This harvest time, both literally and figuratively, is an opportunity to enjoy the fruits of your labor and reflect on the completion of a cycle.

Consistent with this energetic piece, herbalists recommend heartier foods, roots, rhizomes, and herbal formulas in the fall to build up the immune system and aid digestion in preparation for the busy holiday season. This rhizome rich, warming golden milk fits the bill, while also doubling as a delicious seasonal treat.

The essential ingredient is our Turmeric with Meadowsweet & Ginger tea. This herbal trifecta works by targeting the gut first, since that is where herbs first interact with the body. After that, the body is ready to address the everyday aches and pains associated with the strenuous physical activity and lifestyle that embody the holiday season—not the least of which is digestive discomfort.* As herbalists, we believe that the health of the body depends on the long-term health of the gut, which is why this tea can bring soothing relief at a time when our body isn’t operating at its finest.*

This dairy-free pumpkin spice golden milk gets its creamy consistency from blended almond milk with a touch of coconut oil. And, with pumpkin spice, a touch of maple syrup, and a large dose of plant power, you’ll hardly miss the sugar spiked alternatives.
