  • 1 cup coconut milk drink (see notes if you want to use canned coconut milk)
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup, coconut sugar, or honey (if not vegan) (adjust according to taste)


  • In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk and coconut oil over medium heat. Whisk in the ground turmeric, ground cinnamon, ground ginger and ground black pepper. Heat until the milk is warm, whisking frequently. Do not let the milk boil.
  • Slowly whisk in your sweetener of choice. I suggest starting with 1 teaspoon, and adding more as desired. You can remove from heat immediately after the coconut milk is warmed and everything is whisked in, or you can allow the spices to seep for about 10 minutes on the stovetop, if desired.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a mug. This is best enjoyed immediately, before the spices fully settle on the bottom. You may also want to serve this turmeric latte with a spoon so you can give it a gentle stir before each sip. 


If you would like to make golden milk using a golden milk paste, see this recipe.
If you make the recipe with canned coconut milk, you may want to opt for a low fat version, and you probably want to substitute half of it with another type of milk alternative.
