Drink This After Fasting: Turmeric Golden Milk Shake: Thomas DeLauer

Golden Milk Protein Power Shake

– Cannellini Beans
– Nutritional Yeast
– Turmeric
– Sunflower vs. Cashew Butter
– Almond Milk
– Ice
– Stevia
– Pea Protein

Cannellini Beans – 1/3 cup canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

Cognitive Ability

Cannellini beans are rich in thiamine (vitamin B1), which assists brain cell function along with cognition

Thiamine plays a key role in the production of acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter is required for memory and its deficiency can lead to cognitive decline

Weight Loss

Blocks the enzyme known as alpha-amylase, which is naturally produced by the pancreas.

Amylase breaks down complex starch molecules in the body and reduces them to simple sugars to improve absorption in the small intestine.

By blocking this enzyme, the metabolism of starches is slowed and the absorption of sugars are also reduced

Studies have shown that due to the content of a hormone called cholecystokinin (CCK), cannellini beans offer a sensation of satiety (1,2,3)

Nutritional Yeast – 1 tbsp nutritional yeast

Nutritional yeast provides a non-animal source of protein that contains all nine essential amino acids

Also widely regarded as a good source of B vitamins, including B12 and has a nutty, cheese-like flavor

In 2013, research published in the British Journal of Nutrition found it may boost post-exercise immunity

Athletes who ate 3 quarters of a teaspoon of a type of fiber found in nutritional yeast per day ended up having higher amounts of circulating monocytes two hours after intense exercise – higher, in fact, than their pre-workout numbers (4) – This signifies an increase in imune system activity

Turmeric – 1 tbsp turmeric

Alzheimer’s disease

Studies have shown that extracts of turmeric contain natural agents that block the formation of beta-amyloid; substance responsible for the plaques that obstruct cerebral function in Alzheimer’s disease.

Immune System

Turmeric contains a substance known as lipopolysaccharide, which helps stimulate the body’s immune system. Its antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal agents also help strengthen the immune system

Gastrointestinal Issues

The anti-inflammatory activity of curcumin lowers the chances of developing ulcers, is useful for constipation, cramping, and irritable bowel syndrome (5,6)

Sunflower seed butter over Cashew – 2 tbsp

Vitamin E

Helps naturally balance cholesterol, keeping good and bad levels in check

It also reduces free radical damage to slow aging in our bodies and reduce cell damage – one tablespoon provides 24% of our body’s daily needs


Magnesium is vital in keeping energy high, relieving muscle spasms; helping things go smoothly in the bathroom and helping us get deep, quality sleep at night

Almond Milk – 3/4 cup

One study in healthy adults showed that eating 66 grams almond oil every day for six weeks reduced triglycerides by 14%, as well as increased their HDL cholesterol by 6% – reduced risk of heart disease (9)

Stevia – 2 tsp

Doesn’t contribute calories or carbs to the diet and do not affect blood glucose or insulin response

Certain glycosides in stevia extract have been found to dilate blood vessels, increase sodium excretion, and urine output – could potentially help lower blood pressure

I'd try this as as a bean curry with black pepper and coconut milk.

Youtube Master says:

Also- would this recipe be too complex for breaking a 40 day coconut water fast?!

Youtube Master says:

Hemp milk instead of almond milk? Thoughts- I like my omega 3-6 ratio there

Fashion police…..I think if you shaved off the hair Thomas close to a military cut but not quite= Hotness.

michael amorio says:

Where can I get the ingredients ?


You should add black pepper for the Turmeric, otherwise the body will not absorb it too well, other than that, great tips!

tomas serrano says:

Yes I added pepper as well as a capfull of olive oil.

I dont normally leave any comments but Iv been following your advise doing the Keto and have made some serious inroads where as in the past its either been a hit or miss type of diet/lifestyle due to lack of information, guildance AND nutritional/health information. I had to tinker with the smoothy alittle instead making it a final protien drink after my final meal save for the steavia and ice cubes which I replaced with whey protien, createn and ultramega green superfood . I have to admite it was delicious, filling and a satifing last meal before the fasting period. Thank you for the advise, I will incorporate the information into my daily routin.



Tahmeed Mazumder says:

His face tho. Happens too all of us when we drink it first.

Tarik Malaika says:

Is this Keto friendly?

Anthony Nastasi says:

Thomas. Love your vids and love this drink. Any chance the mad scientist in you can come up with a keto variation? Pretty pretty please with no sugar on top?!!! 🙂

Brian P. says:

Nutritional yeast is Brewers yeast. Brewers yeast and baking yeast are basically the same too, just don’t brew with anything but a brewers yeast—and there are many that will result in different beers. Any of these is a primary source of all B vitamins. Most Commercial beers though FILTER OUT the yeast. Craft beers or home brews do not filter out the yeast. There are MILLIONS of active cells, even in clear beer, so long as you are not drinking bud/Miller/coors. That stuff can sit on a shelf for years. Also, there is no flavor in the beer, so it’s even more water like when they remove the yeast.

Garrick Marchena says:

Dude I tried this shake today. Couldn't find Cannellini beans so I replaced it with Great Northern.
That drink hit the spot!!! Thank you very much!

Cyn Moir says:

Thomas, once again, you hit it out of the park! Your explainations of each product being put in this drink — were spot on. Can't wait to try this one. 🙂
