Start Your Day Like A Champ With This Golden Milk And Strawberry Oatmeal

You might think the only options out there for a quick breakfast are pre-packaged oatmeals or energy bars, but we’re about to blow your mind. This golden milk and strawberry oatmeal recipe takes less than a minute to put together, is super delicious and is plenty healthy for you, too! We don’t add any refined sugars, and we amp up the nutrient density by throwing in some strawberries.

Before we get to the recipe, let’s get you acquainted with golden milk (if you aren’t already). Used for centuries as a holistic medicine, golden milk is a combination of simmered coconut milk and turmeric. Sometimes black pepper is added (which we’d recommend) because it helps your body retain the anti-inflammatory nutrients in turmeric, and you can easily switch out the coconut milk for another non-dairy milk. Golden milk is super good for you and offers a well-rounded flavor experience — creamy, spicy and soothing.

We use almond milk in our recipe, but you do you! We also add in some extra spices for the ultimate aromatic effect. You can even make a big batch of the oatmeal in advance and portion it out each day if you’re looking for a grab-and-go solution — just make sure to multiply this recipe for however many days you want to eat it. If wherever you’re running to has non-dairy milk, you can also prep the dry stuff in advance and make it with milk when you arrive at your destination. Or, you know, make it and enjoy it right there in your home. Ahhh, what a great way to start your day.

Golden Milk And Strawberry Oatmeal (Serves 1)

  • 1/2 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup of a non-dairy milk of your choice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • A pinch of cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A pinch of black pepper
  • 1/2 cup of fresh strawberries, quartered


In a microwave-safe bowl, add all of the ingredients and mix them until incorporated. Microwave them for 2 minutes, and then let the bowl sit for a few more minutes. Stir the oats a bit before eating (the oatmeal might look soupy at first but will set after a few minutes) and enjoy!
