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!
