This recipe for Warm Golden Milk Latte will soothe your soul all while providing amazing health benefits! This cozy drink is vegan, gluten free and has zero refined sugars.
With the Fall fast approaching we all start to think about cozy, warming beverages, often spiced up with some sweet syrups. Well my friends, here is something different from the usual Pumpkin Spice Latte.
This Warm Golden Milk Latte is sweet, spicy, creamy and even a tad earthy. Frothed up all bubbly, this drink is like golden velvet.
Golden Milk originated in South Asia where this soothing elixir has been entrenched in their food culture for years. Turmeric is the main element in the milk which is part of an all natural, holistic approach to health care.
Turmeric lattes have strong anti viral and anti bacterial properties which can aid in building up your immunity for the coming cold and flu season.
HOW TO MAKE WARM GOLDEN MILK LATTE
Besides being delicious and full of health benefits, this drink is pretty easy to make. I will admit, there are some dishes involved. The saucepan and the blender. The blender is key! That is your frothy, latte goodness right there.
For my Golden Milk Latte I used creamy cashew milk. Doesn’t that just sound heavenly? Whisk it up in the aforementioned saucepan and bring it to a bubbling simmer.
Make sure you really WHISK up that turmeric. It can come out of the jar in little beads that need to be broken up.
Once the milk is warmed to your liking ( I prefer it just to the brim of hot) transfer it to the lender and give it a quick blitz.
That is it! Carefully open that blender lid, no explosions please.
Pour evenly into mugs and enjoy.
Preferably while wearing some stretchy pants and wrapped in a comfy flannel throw. 🙂
