Turmeric is the health world’s newest darling. It’s valued for its nutrient density and high level of antioxidants. We think the best way to get a delicious dose of this anti-inflammatory superfood is with a creamy vegan latte. This frothy concoction is known as golden milk, and we’re so excited to share our tried and true golden milk recipe.
What You’ll Need
- small saucepan
- measuring cups
- fine mesh strainer
- can opener
- mason jar
- ¾ cup canned coconut milk (original, not light)
- ¾ cup vanilla almond or cashew milk, or for less sweet, plain almond milk
- 1 tsp ground turmeric
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tbsp freshly ground ginger
- 1 pinch ground black pepper
Step #1: Combine the ingredients
Add the milks, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper to the small saucepan.
Step #2: Whisk it up
Set stovetop to medium heat, and whisk regularly. Heat and stir for 4-5 minutes, but be careful not to let it boil.
Step #3: Strain, pour, enjoy!
Strain the warmed mixture into your mason jar. Since turmeric is so strongly pigmented, it can easily stain white dishware. Therefore, we love a charming and rustic mason jar for this golden milk latte. Once cooled to your liking, enjoy this tasty beverage!
Pro Tip: If you’re in a rush, a pre-mixed powder form of the above ingredients can be found online or at your local health food store, and combined with the milks. Our favorite brand is Gaia Herbs.
