Put almond milk, coconut cream, maple syrup, ginger, turmeric root and ground turmeric, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, the cardamom, and pepper in a blender and blend until well combined and frothy on top, about 30 seconds. Strain through a nut-milk bag or large, doubled piece of damp cheesecloth set over a bowl and squeeze to get all the liquid out; discard pulp.
Chill golden milk and serve cold, with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Or heat until hot and serve with a little coconut oil on top, if you like, plus a sprinkle of cinnamon.
*Desouky likes to use So Delicious Dairy Free brand culinary coconut milk, which has a thick, creamy texture like coconut cream. You can also use the top layer of fat and milk from a can of coconut milk. Find fresh turmeric at well-stocked grocery stores.
