How To Make A Golden Milk Turmeric Latte
It’s no secret that I am a bit of a closet hippie. I love trying alternative natural types of recipes. Golden Milk Turmeric Lattes are starting to become a bit mainstream now so I decided to share my recipe.
If you aren’t into unique drinks or haven’t jumped on the turmeric train yet, no worries. We will ease into this 😆 It is actually very tasty and comforting. The hot turmeric milk will warm you up on a cold winter night. And the iced version is perfect for summer.
I use all of my Rodelle Spices because the flavor is unbeatable, especially the Rodelle Turmeric.
What are the turmeric latte benefits?
Turmeric milk is not a new thing, in fact, it has been around for a long time. It is known as haldi doodh in Hindi. So this isn’t some new-wave woo-woo fad.
The curcumin in turmeric is said to have anti-inflammatory benefits. Of course, I’m no doctor or scientist. I drink it because I like it and any health benefits are just a bonus.
There are some side effects to too much turmeric that you should keep in mind. Nausea, dizziness and upset stomach can be an issue for anyone that is sensitive to turmeric. I know this is true because when I first began making golden lattes I had some nausea and dizziness.
If you are sensitive to turmeric or have never tried the turmeric lattes before, I recommend using half the amount of turmeric called for in this recipe until you find the amount that works for you.
Can you make turmeric milk in the microwave?
Yes. Just mix all the ingredients and microwave until hot (about 4 minutes for a full batch). Then the mixture can be stirred and served or blended to make it frothy.
Can you make a large batch of turmeric lattes and keep it refrigerated?
Yes. This is what I do. I make this recipe and get 2-3 turmeric lattes depending on the size of my mugs. Just refrigerate. Blend or shake before serving. And reheat in the microwave for a hot latte or pour over ice for a cold latte.
Is this golden milk recipe vegan?
It can easily be made vegan if you use coconut oil instead of ghee and maple syrup instead of honey.
What tools do you need for this recipe?
You will need a Small Pot, a Whisk and a great Blender. ← I use and own all of these products. If you don’t have a blender you could use a Frothing Wand . . . this is something I don’t currently own but is in my amazon cart 😆
