Golden Yogini Milk

Ancient Ayurvedic texts gave her so many names.

Here are a few: “The One Whose Face is Light and Shining, ”Golden Goddess”, “Yellow One”, “Worthy Earth”.

It is a well-known anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, pain reducer, antiseptic, digestive and anti-allergy medicine I use it, particularly, when:




Pain (it’s great for muscle pain, headaches and strain).

Golden Yogini Milk before bed. It leads to great morning meditations, better sleep and a clear mind upon waking. It is also a great, antioxidant-rich remedy for anxious sleeping.


1/2 tsp. ghee or coconut oil

1 – 2 tsp. turmeric

1/4 tsp. cardamom

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

pinch of nutmeg

a few strands of saffron (optional)

1 cup whole milk (you can replace with almond, soy or hazelnut milk)

Put the ghee in a sauce pan and heat on low with all of the spices except for the saffron. Once you begin to smell the aroma, add the milk and saffron and whisk until hot. Or, add a fresh hunk of ginger, a small handful of almonds and goji berries (or a date!). Throw the whole hot mess in the Vitamix (or regular blender). Blend on high for about a minute for a frothy-hot elixir!
