Ingredients You’ll Need To Make Vegan Golden Milk:

  • Full-Fat Canned Coconut Milk: works best. But if you do not have canned coconut milk on hand, you can use carton coconut milk or any other non-dairy milk.
  • Non-dairy Milk: Ths recipe has been tested with oat Milk and almond Milk. Both work great Both options work great but you can use your preferred non-dairy milk. If you want to make your own Oat Milk from scratch, try my 5-minute Homemade Oat Milk Recipe!
  • Ground Turmeric: The key ingredient here. The recipe calls for 1 ½ teaspoon of ground turmeric. Add up to 2 tsp for a fuller flavor and richer color.
  • Ground Cinnamon: The cinnamon brings a warm sweetness to the drink. You can also use a cinnamon stick to make this drink as well.
  • Ground Ginger: works best for this recipe. You can also use fresh ginger if you prefer. Just be sure to peel and grate it first.
  • Black Pepper: The black pepper activates the curcumin and medicinal properties in turmeric. Just a pinch is needed and the flavor is not prominent at all.
  • Vanilla Extract: Just a bit of vanilla is needed for this drink.
  • Maple Syrup: This is the perfect natural sweetener for Golden Milk, but you can also use coconut sugar or date syrup. (or Stevia if you’re Keto)


How to Make Golden-Turmeric Milk?

  1. Add all the ingredients to a small saucepan and whisk over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. You want to warm the ingredients, but do not bring it to a boil.
  2. Remove the golden milk from the heat and adjust the taste as needed: adding more sweetener to taste and more turmeric for a more intense flavor.
  3. Serve immediately and drink warm. If you want an iced latte, allow the golden milk to come to room temperature first before adding ice.

Tips To Making This Drink:

  • You can serve the drink immediately and drink it warm. Or you can store it in a mason jar or carafe for later.
  • To enjoy iced: Fill up your glass halfway with ice and non-dairy milk. Then, pour the Turmeric Milk into the drink. The drink has a beautiful ombre look. Enjoy!
  • Store the turmeric milk in a mason jar in the fridge for up to five days. The ingredients may separate, so give it a shake before serving. If you want to enjoy it warm, heat it up on the stove.

I tried this recipe this morning and loved it! I drank it this morning hot instead of my usual coffee, which was really nice. After it cooled I poured more over ice because I was very excited to make the ombre style. I think Iced is my favorite! Thanks for the amazing recipe!!
