Warm coconut or almond milk in a small pot at medium heat.
Add the remaining ingredients in a large cup and mix.
Dribble a teaspoon of the warmed milk into the cup and mix until the liquid is smooth and lump-free.
Add the remaining milk and mix well. The remaining ginger pieces can stay in the cup or be strained.
Last but not least, you can season the golden milk to taste and add optional spices.
