Golden Milk and Turmeric Latte

By Nadee

Turmeric Milk

Turmeric milk or latte is not a beverage I grew up with. But since I discovered it, I've been making it at home almost every chance I get. It's a great pick-me-up on days I'm feeling tired, under the weather or just need to relax. I pour myself a steaming mug and wrap myself in the softest blanket I have. The spices are so warm and comforting - it helps me sink into the flavors and aromas and forget the world for a few minutes.

Time: 10 minutes, including resting time

Ingredients for golden milk

For 1 serving

How to make golden milk

  • Put milk, spices and water, if using, into a pot and stir over medium heat, until steaming. Do not boil.
  • Turn off the stove and cover with the lid. Let stand for 5 minutes for spices to steep.
  • Strain into a mug and add honey or desired sweetener.

Can be made up to a day in advance. Store in the fridge in an airtight container or a bottle with a tight stopper.

Tips and variations

  • Nutmeg is optional but I highly recommend it. It elevates the creaminess and taste.
  • Also good poured over ice for a cool and soothing summer beverage.
  • For turmeric latte, use ½ cup milk and 1 cup strongly brewed coffee or your favorite type of tea, including herbal teas.

    This is my new go to drink in the afternoon instead of a cup of coffee. I use unsweetened almond milk which works perfectly. This is comforting and soothing and the perfect pick me up for the afternoon in addition it has the added health benefit of the tumeric (with the black pepper). I don’t miss my caffeine in the afternoon at all!
