Warming Golden Gubinge Milk

This warming golden milk uses one of Australia’s star superfoods.

Packed with vitamin C - boasting the highest natural vitamin C concentration in the world - Gubinge (also known as Kakadu Plum) is the ultimate ingredient for a warming hot drink in winter. It has a slightly tangy, tart taste that pairs perfectly with fresh turmeric, ginger and peppercorns. This recipe evens out the zing with creamy coconut milk and aromatic spices. 

A delicious way to nourish your body this winter, this is the kind of hot toddie that loves you back.

Makes 2 cups


  • 2 Tbsp fresh turmeric, grated (measure before you grate)
  • 5cm knob of fresh ginger, grated
  • ½ tsp peppercorns
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 cups full fat coconut milk
  • 2 cups coconut water
  • 1-2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2-4 tbsp Coconut Nectar (start with less and add more to your liking)
  • Gubinge Powder (see amount below)


Place all ingredients (except the Gubinge Powder) in a saucepan. Bring to the the boil, remove the lid and simmer on low for 20-30 minutes (you want to reduce the amount of liquid 2 cups/500mL). Turn off the heat and allow to cool.

To serve, strain through a fine sieve. Before adding the Gubinge Powder, check the drink temperature and ensure its below 60 degrees Celsius (to avoid destroying the vitamin C). Add 1/8 tsp Gubinge at a time, stirring and increasing the amount to your liking
