Units Scale

golden milk

  • 1 1/4 cups coconut milk*
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • maple syrup, agave syrup or honey, to taste (I used about 1 tablespoon)

for the oats

  • 1/2 cup steel cut oats*
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds



  1. Make Golden Milk: In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, whisk together milk and spices until warm. Add in sweetener and coconut oil. Whisk again until honey is dissolved. Do not let mixture come to a boil. Remove saucepan from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Make Overnight Oats: In a 16 ounce jar, add oats, chia seeds, and optional add-ins if using. Pour cooled golden milk mixture into jar and tightly cover with lid. Shake jar until ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Store in fridge for at least 8 hours before serving.
  3. Serve with fresh fruit, flaked coconut, sprinkle more cinnamon, add nut butter, etc. and enjoy! If the mixture is thicker than you’d like, simply add some extra milk.
  4. To heat: add overnight oats to small saucepan over low heat, add a splash of milk and heat until warm.


MILK – I used coconut milk from the carton. You can also use another non-dairy milk of your choice.

OATS – This recipe was made with steel cut oats. If you’d like to use quick or rolled oats, you can use 3/4 cup rolled or quick oats with 1 ½ cups of the golden milk; refrigerate for at least 4 hours.

PROTEIN POWDER – If adding vegan protein powder, you will likely need to increase the liquid depending on the blend. I added an additional 3-4 tablespoons after adding mixing all ingredients in jar. If using whey or collagen peptides, no extra liquid is really necessary.

DOUBLE THE RECIPE – Recipe can be doubled and split into 4 individual jars, 2 (16 ounce) jars, or 1 large (32 ounce) jar and divided out how you’d like.

STORING – Oats will keep in fridge 3-4 days. Prep time refers to overnight fridge time

Nutrition based on unsweetened coconut milk and 1 tablespoon of honey.
