Golden Turmeric Latte Recipe

Liven up your daily latte easily with spices and a natural sweetener like maple syrup or local honey!

Turmeric has a very strong flavor, and it can be overpowering on its own however as an ingredient in a latte, it makes your daily turmeric easy to take.

The below recipe does not include coffee however for an extra kick you can add a shot of your favourite brew to the milk. The coffee will of course make the colour of the drink darker than in the picture.



  • 2 cups milk (you can use almond, coconut, soy, macadamia, dairy or a mix)
  • ¼ tsp 3xR Curcumin Super Blend Powder (turmeric)
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maple syrup or honey (both are good!)

  • Small pot
  • Milk frother or French press (optional)
  • Two large coffee mugs

1. Combine ingredients.
Combine your ingredients in a small pot and stir until they are fully incorporated.

2. Simmer.
Bring the contents to a simmer over low heat for 2-4 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent clumping.

3. Froth milk.
You can froth the milk to make it extra creamy. If you have a milk frother, you can use that; otherwise, just bring everything to a boil and stir.

If you have a French press, you can mimic a frother by pumping the mixture vigorously with the plunger. Be careful! It’s very easy to splash hot milk out of the french press. Use a slow, controlled motion until you get a feel for it.

4. Garnish.
Pour the mixture into two large mugs. You can garnish with a cinnamon stick or sprinkle a touch of ground cinnamon over the top for a little more cinnamon kick.

You can make some changes to suit your taste - here are some ideas.


There really are no wrong answers when it comes to choosing what spices to add. We like the above combination the best, but you can use cardamom, nutmeg, and allspice to great effect - rather like a Chai. As a rule of thumb, try adding a ¼ tsp of any spice to start and adjusting from there.


Replacing your morning coffee with a nice cup of golden turmeric milk does make a good healthy alternative to coffee. If you love and are not in a hurry to give it up one variation that might be even better than the standard turmeric latte is a turmeric latte with coffee. Try adding a shot of espresso or a double shot to experience an equally delicious twist on this recipe. Turmeric lattes have a powerful taste, and the coffee can easily be overshadowed if you use a weak bean so use a robust dark roast which will go nicely with the strong flavors in the turmeric latte.
