Turmeric golden latte recipe

The golden latte: a cosy caffeine-free drink designed to nurture your body's immune system.


Turmeric is a root-like stem that has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine for its range of health-supporting properties. It is not only anti-inflammatory but also supports your immune system's defence mechanisms. Although turmeric is rapidly digested in the body, it is not readily absorbed into the bloodstream. Make sure that you always pair it with black pepper and healthy fat which can increase its bioavailability by as much as 2000 per cent!


  • 1 cup organic full fat coconut milk (you may use dairy milk or another alternative milk)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 
  • Ghee, butter or coconut oil for the benefit of absorption and feeling full
  • 1/4 inch piece of ginger root peeled and grated (or use dry ground ginger)
  • 1 big pinch of ground cardamom
  • 1 big pinch of freshly ground black pepper

Add ons:

  • 1/4 teaspoon raw honey or maple syrup as a vegan alternative to honey (add after heating)
  • Cinnamon and any other spices for flavouring
  • ½ tsp Vanilla extract for flavouring


Combine all ingredients in a pan and heat on low simmer (don't boil) for 15 minutes. You can blend the ingredients by hand or in a blender for more froth. If you wish, strain before serving. Enjoy!
