  • 2 cups milk can use any kind: almond, soy, oat, etc.
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick or 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 (1-inch) turmeric root, unpeeled, thinly sliced or 1 1/2 tsp. of ground tumeric
  • 1 (1/2-inch) ginger root, unpeeled, thinly sliced or 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp. honey use maple syrup or agave as sweetener
  • 1 tbsp. virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp. whole black peppercorns


  • Whisk coconut milk, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey, coconut oil, peppercorns, and 1 cup water in a small saucepan; bring to a low boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until flavors have melded, about 10 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into mugs and top with a dash of cinnamon.


  • I prefer to use fresh ingredients but if using ground spices they'll settle to the bottom so make sure to stir before serving
  • Store up to 2-3 days in an airtight jar
  • Can serve over ice as a latte but when your sick you want it warm
