DIY Turmeric Latte

Coffee shops are rolling out turmeric lattes this fall, but you can make your own with healthier ingredients and for less money in your own kitchen with our cheater recipe. No espresso maker required. Here’s how!

Every place that offers a Turmeric Latte is a little bit different. Some include coffee or espresso, some†steam up a mug of golden milk and call it a latte. I’m not here to†argue†semantics, though. I’m just here to share a delicious, creamy coffee drink packed with turmeric power!

This recipe is sort of a mashup of†the Golden Milk recipe that Maggie McCracken shared†last summer here at Care2 and my own Dirty Chai. I love how the deep seasonings and touch of sweetness in this recipe work with the bitter coffee flavor.†You can use decaf, if caffeine isn’t your thing.

Ingredients

    For the Turmeric Milk Tea
  • 2 cup vegan milk of your choice.
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • pinch of cloves
  • For the Turmeric Latte
  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • maple syrup or agave nectar, optional

Instructions

  1. In a small cup or bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the vegan milk with the spices, and whisk to create a slurry.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the slurry you just made with the remaining milk. Heat on low, stirring, for about 5 minutes, until the spices are absorbed.
  3. Divide the hot coffee between two mugs, then strain the Turmeric Milk Tea into the mugs. Sweeten with agave nectar, to taste. Serve warm.
