I have made golden milk lattes for so long but I have to say, I have finally mastered my recipe and I couldn’t be more excited to share it. For a non-coffee drinker like myself, this latte satisfies my sweet, hot beverage without drinking tea all winter long. Plus, the benefits of turmeric alone are a reason to drink golden milk. Win-win-win.

This golden milk latte is frothy, sweet, and absolutely delicious. My recipe is vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free and full of vitamins and nutrients for natural health.

Here is my perfected Golden Milk Latte recipe:

Turmeric Golden Milk Latte

Makes 1 latte

Ingredients: 

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 3/4 cup of extra hot water
  • 1 tsp of turmeric powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of chia seeds (or hemp or flax)
  • Splash of 100% pure maple syrup or honey
  • Optional: For added froth and creaminess- 1 tsp of pea protein powder

 

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients to blender- I use the Magic Bullet, I’ve had it for years, it’s so versatile and it still works like a charm.
  2. Blend for about a minute or until frothy.
  3. Sample and see if you need to add more of anything. Every mix seems to be a little different. I don’t measure things out exactly but this is my starting point. Add ingredients if necessary- normally more cinnamon or turmeric.
  4. Pour contents in mug and stir.
  5. Top with ground cinnamon and enjoy your delectable latte full of incredible health benefits

 

Some health benefits of golden milk and turmeric are:

  • Natural Anti-inflammatory
  • Full of antioxidants that are said to prevent Alzheimer’s
  • Speeds up the healing process
  • Aids in fat metabolism and weight management
  • Improves digestion
  • Reduces the side effects of chemotherapy
  • SO MANY MORE!

 

Turmeric is a little health bomb that everyone could use- why not make a delicious Golden Milk Latte your form of consumption? It is currently my favorite part of my morning routine- beautiful, delicious, and packed with benefit. I hope you enjoyed this recipe for Meatless Munchy Monday!
