Golden Milk Latte
This warming drink tastes like a coffeehouse chai latte, but this easy recipe is full of antioxidants and is anti inflammatory.
Serves: 1
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 inch piece turmeric root, thinly sliced
  • 1 inch piece ginger root, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 inch cinnamon stick
  • ¼ teaspoon peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon virgin coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • ground cinnamon for serving
  1. In a small saucepan, combine the almond milk, turmeric slices, ginger slices, cinnamon stick, peppercorns, coconut oil. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Immediately reduce to a low simmer. Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes. Add the honey or maple.
  2. Strain through a sieve into a mug. Froth milk with a milk frother or use a hand blender to create some froth. Sprinkle with a shake of ground cinnamon. Serve hot.
Add more or less honey or maple, to taste.

Fresh turmeric gives best results, but you can certainly substitute with ½ teaspoon ground turmeric. You'll get a bit of sediment at the bottom of your cup, so stir well.
