Saffron Turmeric Milk - Healthy Indian Drink

Saffron Turmeric Milk- Native Organica

Saffron Turmeric milk has been a mainstay in every Indian family for as long as we all can remember. It's one of those drinks that always spring to mind when we're feeling run down or want to keep the winter blues at bay due to the numerous health advantages it instills, or it could be due of its addicting irresistible creamy flavour or it may be...both!

For those who don't know, Saffron Turmeric milk is golden coloured warm sweet flavoured milk. In India, it is generally regarded as the "Mother of all healing" because there's a lot more to it than its captivating appearance that meets the eye.

We, at Native Organica, serve a wide range of organic spices. The Saffron used in the recipe is directly sourced from Afghanistan. It is absolutely authentic and organically produced requiring only a single strand of it to give the milk a distinctively wonderful and sweet flowery flavour and colouring.

  • 2-3 Saffron threads
  • 2-3 granulated sugar or to taste


  • In a small saucepan, heat the milk over a medium flame.
  • When it's heated enough, add the turmeric, cardamom, saffron, and sugar to taste. [PRO TIP: You can replace sugar with honey. You can also add 1 tbsp almond oil for extra flavour and nutrition].
  • Continue to whisk while adding the ingredients to the milk, and then reduce to a low heat for 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Finally, transfer it your cups. You can relish it warm or cool down for a couple of minutes.


We recommend to continuously whisking the milk to avoid any skin formation on the top surface and for a more blended flavour.
