Golden Milk Latte
  1. Pour the milk into a saucepan and cook over medium-high heat until it’s hot, but don’t bring it to a boil.
  2.  Remove from the heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Stir and try the milk, add more milk or 4oz of hot water, turmeric, cinnamon or honey as needed.
  3.  Use a milk frother to blend and froth. You can also blend the hot milk with the rest of the ingredients in a blender.
Homemade Nut Milk
  • In large glass bowl, soak 1 cup of almonds (or nut of choice) in water for appropriate time (2-10 hours), place in refrigerator. Drain and rinse after proper soaking time.
  • In high powered blender or food processor, blend soaked nuts on high 1-2 minutes with 3 1/2 cups of water, add in flavorings such as the vanilla and a little cinnamon.
  • Pour into your BIGGER Better Nut Milk Bag, gently squeeze, separating the almond pulp from the liquid.
  • Refrigerate milk in sealed container. Best if used 3-7 days after, milk will separate. Remember to shake it before using!

This easy golden latte made with turmeric has just the right amount of sweetness and spice. It also has antioxidants, isn’t that nice?

You could drink this golden latte before bed or have it as energizing morning beverage. It’s a great way to change things up especially during the colder months when a healthy hot beverage hits the spot.

Turmeric contains a wealth of health benefits and it tastes delicious when mixed into milk! This yellow drink that is loaded with spices and a little honey for some sweetness is so soothing and warms your body from the inside. It is a great drink to have about an hour before bed to naturally calm your body, making it easier to fall asleep. Turmeric is a super spice and having a glass of golden milk is a great way to incorporate the spice into your diet! 

After having an amazing golden latte in Hawaii I was determined to recreate my own version of this turmeric beverage.  I highly recommend getting a frother  to blend all the amazing flavors. It’s been a beverage game changer. Also, upgrading to Tahitian vanilla extract is something I don’t regret, I even add it to my coffee and smoothies! It’s delicious and reminds me of our trip to Bora Bora. Try it out!

Golden Latte Nutrition Info:

Turmeric:  contains curcumin, known to have powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Chronic inflammation contributes to many common Western diseases. Curcumin used in studies have shown it can suppress many molecules known to play major roles in inflammation.

I use Further Food Turmeric Tonic which is a antiodiant packed healing blend of spices. It’s formulated by their master herbalists and nutritionists and each serving has natural anti-inflammatory & immune boosting ingredients: Organic Turmeric, Adaptogenic Herbs (Boswellia & Schisandra Berry), and Organic Superfoods (Ginger, Cinnamon, Cloves, Cardamom, Black Pepper).

Cinnamon: contains large amounts of highly potent polyphenol antioxidants. It adds flavor and just the right amount of spice to the latte.

Easy Golden Latte Milk Alternative Ideas:

Nut Milk: Nut milk provides a bit sweeter and nutty flavor which is delicious with this recipe! Almond milk also is typically lower in calories than dairy while still providing calcium and vitamin E!

Oat Milk: Oat milk is a good choice for anyone who is allergic or intolerant to dairy and/or nuts. It also can be a healthy option to lower saturated fat intake in your diet. It also contains multiple vitamins and minerals. I personally just love the flavor!

Hemp Milk: Hemp milk has heart healthy fats and is a plant-based milk. Hemp is considered a complete protein. It’s a good option for those who avoid soy, lactose or gluten.
