  • 2 cups oat milk (substitute coconut drinking milk for a Paleo option)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric* (or 1 1/2 tablespoons of freshly grated turmeric)
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger (or 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or 1 large cinnamon stick
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves, or 1-2 whole cloves (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom, or 2-3 cardamom pods, crushed (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unrefined virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup optional


  • Add the milk to a small saucepan over low heat. Add turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cloves (if using), cardamom (if using), and black pepper. Whisk until well combined.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer, but do not boil. Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes, whisking occasionally, until smooth and hot. Alternatively, you warm the milk in the microwave and then whisk in all the ingredients using a whisk or an electric frother.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat. If you used whole spices, strain the golden milk over a fine mesh sieve and discard the solids. Stir the coconut oil and maple syrup (if using) into the milk. Taste and add maple syrup if needed.
  • Use an electric frother to froth the latte, if desired.


*If you are new to consuming turmeric and haven’t acquired the taste yet, use just 1 teaspoon.
