A Beautiful Turmeric Latte/ Golden Milk Recipe
Someone gave me some turmeric powder a few months ago and I didn’t know what to do with it until last night when I realized that hey…!! I could make a cup of that beautiful turmeric latte/ golden milk recipe I saw earlier this year on Instagram! Here’s the said recipe by Julia of @wellfedhealth:

Happy Sunday everyone ☀️ I’ve been working my tail off this past week, and I’m pretty tired and brain dead. Super excited about a little get together tonight to talk about hormones and how they affect our bodies and minds, and how we can balance and heal. Cozying up and relaxing this afternoon with a mug of golden milk that I whipped up on the fly to sort of calm and center myself. Can’t wait to meet some amazing women tonight. 💛 . 3 minute Golden Milk: – 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk – 6-8 oz water – 1 T coconut oil – 1 tsp maple syrup – 1/2 tsp turmeric – 1/4 tsp ginger – 1/4 tsp cinnamon – 1 scoop @furtherfood collagen peptides (use code WELLFEDHEALTH10 for 10% off your order!) . Heat the coconut milk and water. Blend everything in a blender. Relax and sip 💛 . . . . . #collagen #collagenpeptides #turmeric #turmericlatte #goldenmilk #goldenmilklatte #aip #totesaip #vegan #paleo #foodasmedicine #guthealing #autoimmune #autoimmunewarrior #functionalmedicine #nutritionaltherapy #ntatraining #hormones #hormonebalance #adoreyourhormones #bloodsugarcontrol
It’s really very easy to do. Just gather all the ingredients together and blend! I personalized the recipe a bit by replacing coconut milk with regular adult milk, though of course coconut milk is ideal especially if you’re vegetarian or vegan. I also substituted maple syrup with coconut sugar and didn’t add any coconut oil. What I did add was a banana, in order to make the drink more full-bodied.
You might want to know that adding this golden spice in your diet won’t just make your dishes and drinks more flavorful. It yields many health benefits too. Healthline lists down some of them:
- It’s anti-inflammatory
- It relieves pain
- It improves liver function
- It helps reduce the risk of cancer
- It can aid digestion
P.S. Turmeric is a staple in Ayurvedic medicine, but it’s not for everyone. It’s not recommended for those who have stomach ulcer, for instance. It’s also not recommended for pregnant women. Please consult a trusted healthcare professional if you’re not sure whether you can include turmeric in your diet.
I was hoping to achieve the exact golden glow I saw on Julia’s post but my own version didn’t turn out quite as golden. Oh well. Expectation versus reality. 🙂 I enjoyed the comforting drink nonetheless.
If you love the taste of ginger or if you’re adventurous enough to try unfamiliar drinks, then I highly suggest concocting this turmeric latte recipe as a morning or evening treat. The taste didn’t disappoint me. You might like it too.
