Golden Milk Lattes! Aren't they so dreamy?

I mean, even IF I didn't know how magical turmeric is for the body, I would still totally go for one of these, especially iced, and especially in the summer.

I am always the last person to jump onto trends... so yes, golden milk turmeric lattes have been around for a while now, but is it ever too late to enjoy a beautiful glass full of vegan liquid gold? I think not.

Plus, this trendy-happy-cup-of-sunshine is actually filled with lots of nutrition. We're getting healthy fats from the milk, and so much antioxidant goodness from the turmeric.

Turmeric, in case you didn't know, is a potent little spice that has remarkable health benefits - it is a powerful antioxidant, powerful anti-inflammatory, and has proven in many scientific studies to assist in the healing of many illnesses.

Soooo what do you say? Beautiful vibrant health in a cup? Yes please.

A few things you should know:

  • My favorite version of this recipe is using light coconut milk from a can. This milk provides that ultra creamy and silky consistency. I feel that coconut milk from a carton is too watered down and the flavor is not as rich.
  • Coconut milk is very high in fat... natural fat, but fat nonetheless. So with that in mind, maybe keep an eye on how many of these cups you have per day. I use coconut milk that is labeled LIGHT and that helps cut the fat in half.
  • I have tried this recipe with oat milk, and really any plant based milk should work. however the consistency, color, and taste may be affected slightly. If you do try it with a different milk - make sure to let me know below in the comments so that our fellow readers can have options. 🙂
  • Turmeric is a lovely little spice with a lot of kick - which means it may take a bit of getting used to, especially if you have never had it before. Always start with less (I use 1 tsp in my recipe, but feel free to start with 1/2), knowing that you can always add more later on if needed.

what turmeric powder to use:

The turmeric powder that I use for this recipe is Sari Foods Organic Turmeric powder (affiliate link), and is available on Amazon! Sari Foods was kind enough to send me a free sample so that I could test out their turmeric powder, and I must say, it is really good quality turmeric powder.

I've tried many turmeric powders throughout the years and a lot of times.. you can't even smell or taste the turmeric (and even though you may be thinking that's a good thing) it only means that the powder is not potent enough and probably old and stale. A good quality turmeric powder should have a distinct earthy smell to it, and should have a spicy earthy subtle taste.

This iced golden milk turmeric latte is great for the summer time. Extremely refreshing and silky smooth - you can sip on them at the beach, in a picnic, poolside with the friends, or at home in your pajamas.. because it's so hot out you don't even dare leave the a/c. 😛 (guilty.)

All right friends -

hope you enjoy this latte. Oh and ps. you can totally leave the ice out and warm it up instead and take it the warm flavors of these spices - it'll be like having autumn in a cup! 😉

Vegan Golden Turmeric Iced Milk Latte

A silky golden turmeric iced milk latte that is so refreshing and nutritious. Perfect for any hot summer day. Vegan | Gluten free | Refined sugar free.

  • Author: Jen
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 2 minutes
  • Total Time: 7 minutes
  • Yield: 2 cups
  • Category: breakfast
  • Method: blender

Ingredients

  • 1 can light coconut milk* (see notes for substitutions)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder (3g)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or flavoring
  • 2 medjool dates (38g)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and combine until smooth.
  2. Pour into a cup, add ice,  and enjoy!

Notes

  • My favorite version of this recipe is with light coconut milk from a can as written. However, in theory, this recipe will work with any plant-based milk. The only other milk I have tried this recipe with is 1.5 cups of unflavored oat milk – and even though it works, the end result is a much thicker, sweeter and just overall stronger taste. Feel free to experiment with other plant based milks but please note that it will alter the recipe.
