alright gals. are you ready to ✨glow✨?! how about if we add a creamy, frothy, & comforting latte to the mix?? & how about we make it a super easy & healthy latte at that? a latte that’s full of the tasty glow-worthy benefits of turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, & milk…
are you on board yet??
ok, good. i thought you might be.
so here’s the deal. as a born-&-raised wisconsin gal, milk has always been a huge part of my life. family meals, whether breakfast or supper, were never complete without icy cold glasses of milk for everyone at the table. school snacks & lunches always started by grabbing a milk from the milk cooler. (side note – major shout out to anyone who drank their school milk out of a pouch!!)
my love affair with all things dairy hasn’t gone anywhere as an adult. while i have an obvious fondness of fancy lattes & cheese boards, milk is also one of my go-tos for a healthy punch of nutrients on a daily basis. & while milk alternatives are kind of having a moment right now, i just cannot bring myself to give up milk. i love the protein it adds to my morning coffee & the creaminess it adds to my daily smoothie. & above all, i love finding new ways to use milk in my daily life that make me feel both comforted & amazing all at once.
enter this easy golden turmeric latte.
i first tried a golden turmeric latte at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop. once i saw the beautiful golden hue & imagined the warming flavors of turmeric + ginger + cinnamon frothed together into creamy perfection, it was one of those things that i couldn’t not try, you know?
which is exactly why it was so disappointing when the golden turmeric latte i tried just wasn’t great. it tasted watery & somehow all of the flavor of the spices got lost.
i knew i could do better in my own kitchen (& as a bonus i’d save $5 every time!), so i set out to make my own. & oh my word, my golden turmeric latte did not disappoint.
this golden turmeric latte is unbelievably flavorful, & as a bonus it’s unbelievably good for you. we’re talkin’…
- turmeric + cinnamon, the power couple of the spice world when it comes to antioxidant & anti-inflammatory properties (✨hello glowing vibes✨)
- ginger + cayenne, which add a balancing punch of spice that makes you go back to your golden latte sip after sip (after sip after sip…)
- Kemps Probiotic Milk, which delivers on the creamy dreamy factor of this easy golden turmeric latte, but also serves as a powerhouse ingredient when it comes to health benefits. it has billions of live probiotic cultures per serving to help support super healthy digestion, plus it’s loaded with calcium, protein, vitamins a & d, and 9 other essential nutrients. superfood much??
as a bonus, which i was so pleased to learn, Kemps probiotic milk is produced locally in rochester, mn by family-run farms. & as a double bonus, it’s so easy to find!! i was able to find it at my local target store right next to all of the other milks, but it’s also available at cub, festival foods, & roundy’s across minnesota & wisconsin.
so…it’s safe to say an easy golden turmeric latte is my go-to afternoon pick-me-up these days.
& with the ✨glow✨ factor that comes with its antioxidants, anti-inflammatory benefits, and healthy digestion, it should be yours too. get your glow on, girlfriends! ✨?

this easy golden turmeric latte recipe is just as delicious as it is beautiful! this easy golden turmeric latte is loaded with the warm flavors, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. great for a calming morning drink, or an afternoon pick-me-up!
- 1 cup Kemps Probiotic Milk® (the 2% variety is fantastic!), steamed or frothed
- ½ tsp ground turmeric
- ½ tsp ground ginger
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
- pinch cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp coconut oil, melted
- 1 tsp honey (or maple syrup, or agave)
- optional: 1 scoop collagen powder
- optional: 1-2 shots espresso
Steam or froth the milk in your frother or on the stovetop. Transfer the warm milk into a blender with all of the spices, coconut oil, and honey. Blend on high speed until frothy and combined. Pour into a mug and enjoy!
- For a dirty easy golden turmeric latte, add 1-2 shots of espresso as desired.
- I prefer my lattes to be sweet, but not too sweet. 1 teaspoon of honey (or another sweetener of choice) does it for me, but if you like sweet drinks you may wish to add another teaspoon or two.
- One of my favorite things to do while I’m meal prepping for the week is to make a golden turmeric latte dry mix, which keeps me from having to dig around my pantry for 5 bottles of spices when I want to make a golden turmeric latte. In a small jar (or resealable container), combine 2 tablespoons each ground turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon, 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper, and ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper. Cover and shake to combine the spices, ensuring they’re thoroughly mixed. To make a golden turmeric latte during the week, all you have to do is measure out 1 ½ heaping teaspoons of the dry mix and add to the blender to make your latte. Dry mix is good for about 6 easy golden turmeric lattes.
- After testing this easy golden turmeric latte recipe in both my blender and my go-to milk frother, I prefer taking a combined approach. The frother adds great foam to the milk (which I love, but isn’t necessary!), and the blender helps mix the spices into the milk in a way that the frother alone did not. For best results, I suggest using both, though at a minimum adding warmed milk to a blender will work just fine!
