• A turmeric latte, also known as golden milk, is a healthy and delicious drink that has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its various health benefits.

    This warm, frothy drink is made with turmeric, a spice that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

    With a comforting flavour, this beverage is sure to make a great addition to your warm beverage rotation of tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Here’s how to make a turmeric latte at home.


    • 1 cup milk of your choice (dairy or non-dairy)
    • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
    • 1 teaspoon honey (or any sweetener of your choice)
    • ½ teaspoon cinnamon powder
    • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
    • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
    • A pinch of black pepper



    Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium heat until it begins to simmer.

    Add turmeric powder, cinnamon powder, ground ginger, and a pinch of black pepper to the milk.

    Whisk the ingredients together until the spices are well combined.

    Allow the mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes until it becomes fragrant.

    Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in honey or maple syrup to sweeten the taste.

    Pour the mixture into a blender and blend until frothy.

    Pour the mixture into a mug and sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon.


    • Use a high-speed blender to ensure a smooth and frothy consistency.
    • Adjust the sweetness and spice level to your taste.
    • For a vegan option, use non-dairy milk such as almond or coconut milk.
    • Use fresh turmeric root instead of turmeric powder for a more intense flavour and even more health benefits.
