Golden Milk Overnight Oats with Turmeric, Spices, and Honey {gluten-free, vegan} 

IngredientsGolden milk:

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) honey, more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) boiling water
  • 2 cups (475 ml) plant milk (I like coconut almond milk from Milkman which is essentially equal parts almond milk and coconut water with a little salt and vanilla)


  • 1⅓ cups (100 g) old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free if intolerant)
  • 2 tablespoons (20 g) chia seed
  • 2 tablespoons (20 g) hemp hearts
  • 1 ½ cups (355 ml) golden milk (above)
  • fresh fruit and honey, for serving


Golden Milk:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the honey, turmeric, ginger, cardamom, and cinnamon. Stir to combine, then stir in the boiling water to dissolve the honey. Stir in the plant milk. Taste, adding more honey dissolved in boiling water if you want a sweeter milk.


  1. Combine oats, chia, and hemp seeds in a pint canning jar, stirring or shaking to combine. Pour the golden milk into the jar and stir or shake to combine. Chill overnight or up to 3 days. To serve, top with fresh fruit and honey, if desired.
