I have a new nighttime obsession.

No, it’s not the newest season of the Real Housewives.

It’s this Golden Milk Latte. It’s warm, creamy and delicious, and flavored with vanilla, cinnamon and ginger. It’s basically like a hug in a mug. But the best part of this Golden Milk Latte? It’s super healthy for you because the same thing that gives this Golden Latte its stunning color is also packed with loads of health benefits. Turmeric.

What are the Health Benefits of Golden Milk?

Curcumin, the active component in turmeric, has loads of health benefits, which makes it super beneficial. Here are some of the top benefits of drinking golden milk nightly:

  • Reduces inflammation
  • Supports brain functioning and improves memory
  • Lowers blood sugar levels
  • Boosts the immune system
  • Improves mood

What Does Golden Milk Taste Like?

  • Golden milk tastes rich and creamy and is delicately spiced. It’s a bit like eggnog or even a bowl of brown sugar oatmeal. The cinnamon really shines through, as does the vanilla.

How Do You Make Golden Milk?

To make this Golden Milk Latte, I first create a concentrate with coconut milk, honey, turmeric, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and black pepper. That way, when I want to enjoy a cup, all I have to do is add four tablespoons to a cup of milk and stir.

I love combining the golden milk concentrate with Bolthouse Farms® Vanilla Plant Protein Milk for even more vanilla flavor and added health benefits. Their Plant Protein Milk is a non-dairy plant-based milk made with pea protein. It boasts 50% more calcium than dairy milk and a whopping 10 grams of protein per serving. Look for it in the refrigerated natural foods section at Fred Meyer.

Why Black Pepper in Golden Milk Latte?

  • Adding black pepper to golden milk actually increases your body’s ability to absorb the active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin.

How Long Does Golden Milk Last?

  • This golden milk latte concentrate will last in the fridge for up to five days.

I prefer to use full-fat coconut milk in this Golden Milk Latte recipe. When opening the can, be sure to shake it first so that the solids and liquids combine. You will have leftover coconut milk after making the turmeric concentrate. You can either add the coconut milk to your coffee in the morning, or you can freeze it. Note that the coconut milk will separate when frozen. Simply use a blender or immersion blender to re-emulsify it.

    This golden milk latte is SO PRETTY. I don’t know how I feel about drinking turmeric, but maybe I should get behind it because of all the health benefits.

    Even though golden milk has been popular for some time now, I’ve never tried making my own at home. Using coconut milk sounds delicious, and I can easily veganize the recipe with agave or maple syrup. Yum — thanks for sharing!
