Golden milk turmeric tea, also known as golden milk latte, is a popular beverage in the wellness community. It features a generous dose of turmeric and ginger, resulting in a spicy drink with potent anti-inflammatory properties. The beverage also contains ground black pepper, which increases the bioavailability of turmeric. (In other words, it helps your body soak up the goodness of turmeric!) Here's how to make this deliciously comforting beverage.
Things You'll Need
1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
For best results, use a creamy non-dairy milk like coconut milk. You can also add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil if using a thinner non-dairy milk.
In a small pot or saucepan, combine all the ingredients. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
Heat for 5 to 8 minutes, whisking frequently, or until the ingredients are fully combined. Let cool until slightly warm before pouring into your mug.
Depending on your taste buds, you might need to adjust the ingredients. For example, you may prefer a lighter turmeric taste or a stronger ginger flavor. You can also add more sweetener, if needed.
Although golden milk latte is often enjoyed warm, you can also drink it cold. Simply shake the drink in a martini shaker with ice, then pour over ice cubes. Garnish with cinnamon or coconut whipped cream, if desired.
