Golden Turmeric Sipping Broth

This golden broth is flavored and colored by bright turmeric, ginger, with garlic undertones and richness from coconut milk. It's a savory version of "Golden Milk" and so delicious! -- The Nourishing Gourmet

This savory broth is a lovely mix of creamy coconut milk, nourishing chicken broth, and is spiced with turmeric, ginger, black pepper, and garlic for a flavorful, anti-inflammatory sipping broth.

This is my savory version of “golden milk” – a traditional drink that is sweet and spicy. This version uses salt instead of honey, and chicken broth instead of water for a great way to mix things up. Plus, you get the benefit of homemade chicken broth! (Though, the recipe also works with store-bought as well).

I’ve been trying to add more turmeric to our diets lately, and this is a delicious way to do so. My kids love it! They like it especially if I add a handful of rice to give them something to bite into.

As homemade broths and stocks continue to gain popularity, flavored sipping broths are getting a foothold. Those who have followed a “nourishing” diet have long extolled the pleasures of sipping salted homemade broth in the morning chill. That idea is taking off now even commercially. I still enjoy an occasional cup or rich broth by itself, but I love flavoring mine. One example is this recipe. Another one of my favorites is my Simple Thai Broth from my cookbook, Ladled: Nourishing Soups for all Seasons. (Amazon links are affiliate).

AIP Note: This recipe is safe for you if you leave out the black pepper and use a gum free coconut milk/cream. If/when you can handle black pepper, add it, as it helps you get the benefit from the turmeric.

Recipe Notes: I use organic spices, and this brand of gum free Coconut Cream .

    This sounds amazing and so nourishing. I recently had sipping broth at a vegetarian restaurant – chickpea miso, chaga tea, ginger, toasted sesame oil – very yummy, but I do feel for me the addition of bone broth heals me at a deeper level.

    I would like a milk free category for those of us who are allergic and/or can’t tolerate milk products. You have an egg free and a gluten free category. Could you add milk free?

    When I saw the picture, the first thing that popped into my head is , “She makes kadhi?!!?” Kadhi is a spiced buttermilk soup/curry made in India, but it has similar spicing to this and you can drink it too. I know some Indian families who make “turmeric milk” in the winter as it’s supposed to be warming and good for you. It looks a lot like this but it’s just milk and turmeric. Tasty 😛

    I love sipping on broth! It’s a great alternative to sweetened drinks any time of day.

      I was wondering the same thing. I don’t see why not, though. I’ve made golden milk with regular cow’s milk and it was fine. When I get enough to make my broth, I’m certainly going to try this!

    This sounds really good as I was trying to find a way to consume chicken broth for my leaky gut without making a full fledge soup since it’s gross to drink the broth on it’s own lol. One minor edit…The recipe says “In a medium both” but I think you meant to say pot lol. 🙂
