    The acupuncture school I am a patient at recommended drinking golden milk. After I Google-searched recipes, I came upon your delicious recipe in your elightening and fun video. Yours is the only recipe I came across that includes the step of cooking the tumeric in ghee, which I find a lovely, aromatic touch. My system also responds very well to ghee, so it works on that level for me too. I have been making the golden milk daily now for the last week and I can already see a difference in my overall health and mood.

    My question is, would you recommend using coconut milk as an alternative to cow’s milk? If so, which doshas are balanced by the use of coconut milk?



    • Hi Gabrielle,
      Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. So glad that you enjoyed the Golden Milk Video.
      I also appreciate how you are understanding the importance and ease in making any recipe Mind Body Specific or Dosha Specific.
      Golden Milk is very nourishing and builds something we call “Ojas” in Ayurveda which is connected to vital life fluids, energy and immune health.
      It is important that the ghee and milk are digestible, so this is why you hear me talk and demonstrate the use of spices like Fresh Ginger and Cardamom.
      Vata who’s “Ama” (or toxic substance which disturbs digestion ) measures low, may use Whole Cow’s Milk or Coconut Milk or Almond Milk as these are most nourishing and “Ojas” Building.
      Pitta also use these same Milks in small amounts with fresh ginger and cardamom.
      Kapha does better with Goat Milk, Skim Milk or Soy Milk with powdered ginger and cardamom.
      I would love to know….Please share and tell us more about the difference you are seeing in your overall health and mood?
      Namaste, Gina
