Did someone say golden milk soup?!
Have you jumped on the turmeric train yet? It’s a fast and speedy train that has sped through 2017 and doesn’t plan on stopping throughout 2018. There are many reasons why turmeric has become such a hot button ingredient lately:
- It is the ultimate anti-inflammatory superfood and a very strong antioxidant
- It has been used for thousands of years in India as a medicinal herb
- Curcumin (the main ingredient in turmeric) can help promote weight loss naturally
Furthermore, the daily turmeric tonic that is used in this recipe also contains ingredients like:
- Organic schisandra berry: an adaptogenic herb that improves mood and mental clarity
- Boswellia: immune boosting, with pain reducing qualities
- Organic cinnamon: optimal for heart health and loaded with antioxidants
- Organic ginger: reduces inflammation and improves digestion
And y’all already know how much I love collagen peptides. The benefits include but are not limited to the following:
- Sleep quality: Better cognitive function, a sounder sleep cycle and and less daytime drowsiness according to clinical studies shown here
- Bone & joint health: Glycine speeds up wound healing and helps loosen up stiff joints
- Digestive aid: Aids in soothing and healing the digestive tract, as well as helping to repair the mucous lining. In addition, collagen helps to digest the protein and fat found in food, which leads to the body being able to digest them more easily!
- Skin health: Ensures elasticity and regeneration of the skin. The amino acids that are found in collagen have been linked to anti-aging. A study in 2014 showed that women who took collagen peptides regularly for eight weeks saw a 20% reduction in wrinkles.
A complete meal inside this bowl of Whole30 soup.
This golden milk soup comes in very handy for a quick and satisfying breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can alternatively add in your favorite protein like pork belly, shredded beef or some chicken thighs for an even more satiating bite.
Can you tell how creamy this big bowl of deliciousness is? The combination of cauliflower, carrots and collagen peptides makes for a triple creamy pool of yum.
I decided to throw half of the batch into the freezer, so I’d have something to quickly reheat next week. I’m all about saving time and energy spent in the kitchen so when a recipe freezes well, it’s a huge slam dunk over here.

Get creative with this golden milk soup!
What’s so flipping awesome about making a soup like this golden milk one, is the ability to get fairly creative with your ingredients. If you don’t feel like using carrots, substitute in some leeks.
If you’re not a huge fan of cilantro, top off with bad boy with some chopped parsley or basil instead. It’s going to be pretty darn delicious any way you swing it.
The turmeric tonic and collagen peptides were such lovely add-ins, and I’m so excited for you to get your hands on these awesome products. You’ll be adding an extra 21 grams of protein to the soup, in addition to a variety of additional antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and adaptogens.
The unique flavor combinations, coupled with all of the nutrients in this soup make for a real stunner. Don’t be shy and perhaps invite over some lunch or dinner guests to share this golden milk soup with!
It’s time to jump on board the train to turmeric town and make this creamy, dreamy bowl of Whole30 golden milk soup. Cut your weekly meal prep time down and really step up your game, eh? 🙂
