As a food blogger who follows other food blogs, I’m often up-to-date on the latest food trends and recipe ideas. Golden milk is something that’s having a bit of a moment in the plant-based world! Though, as a rule, I don’t subscribe to trends purely for the sake of them being trendy. I drink out of mason jars because they’re cheaper than glasses at Walmart, and I like avocado toast because I love avocados!! Golden milk is something I knew I could get behind from the start, though. The spices are very similar to those of chai lattes, which is my favorite drink to get at coffee shops. Plus, I love anything with bright colors – I just love the sunny yellow shade of this milk!
Whether you follow trends or not, this is someone that you’ll want to make purely because it’s delicious. This spiced vegan golden milk is warming, a little spicy, and perfectly sweet. I know this is more of a fall recipe, but it’d be just as delicious iced, too. Just let the milk cool once it’s done being warmed on the stove, and serve in glasses with ice :)
