Maven Morning Drinks: Part 1

A few weeks ago I made a series of epically amazing morning drinks to start off my day.

Each one seemed to be better than the last.

Since I don’t drink coffee, I sometimes have a feeling of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) when walking past the Starbucks in Grand Central.

But not with these bad boys.

I thought I would share these delightful recipes as a 3 part series called Maven Morning Drinks.

Beginning with Part 1, I thought I would share something so healing and so delicious you’ll be shocked to find out what the main ingredient is.

Morning Golden Mylk

Golden Mylk

I know, drinking something bright yellow doesn’t scream scrumdiddlyumtious. But trust me, this thing is good. The main ingredient in this morning cup of deliciousness is Turmeric, the magical healing herb of southeast India. Turmeric is incredibly anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial. Because of this it has been used medicinally for centuries. It has been known to be used as a remedy for fevers, can delay liver damage, slows the spreading and growth of certain cancers, relieves arthritis (an inflammatory disease), and has even been linked to preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

Because of all these benefits this drink will set you off on the right foot, continuing to help you remove toxins from your body and make you feel radiant from the inside out (I mean it is golden).


  • 1.5 cups non-dairy milk
  • 2 Tbsp turmeric
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 SweetLeaf stevia packet
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil *unrefined and organic

What to do:

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan over low-medium heat. With a whisk, stir the ingredients together until well combined while heating. Whisk vigorously to make it super fluffy. Once warmed, pour into a mug or mason jar, sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon and enjoy!

*Caution: I must note that turmeric, while it is delicious and great to cook with, tends to stain (but not forever). So be careful with your clothing and be sure to wipe it up immediately if it happens to spill on countertops.

With Golden Love,
