How To Make Golden Turmeric Oatmeal

  1. Add all ingredients except for oats in a small saucepan to create the golden milk base: milk, coconut cream, spices, a pinch of black pepper, and natural sweetener. Whisk to combine and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and add the rolled oats. Cook until oats have absorbed all the liquid, about 5-7 minutes. If you would like it thinner, stir in more milk to reach your desired consistency.
  3. Spoon into two bowls and top as desired.

Recipe Tips And Variations

  • Make Overnight Oats. This turmeric oatmeal is perfect if you’d rather make overnight oats. Simply add all the ingredients to an airtight mason jar. Give the jar a good shake so the ingredients are well combined. Store in the fridge overnight. In the morning, you can enjoy your oats cold, or warm them up in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds.
  • Don’t Skip The Black Pepper. It may seem like a strange ingredient to add, but black pepper helps your body better absorb the curcumin (the active ingredient in turmeric)
  • Adjust The Spices. You can add more or less turmeric depending on your taste. You can also use fresh ginger instead of ground ginger.

Storage and Rewarming

Store any leftover turmeric oatmeal in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Rewarm on the stovetop in a small saucepan or place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 30-60 seconds, or until warmed through.
