Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk (Turmeric Milk) is the most delicious and nutrient-dense vegan milk drink you’ll ever taste! It’s the perfect night cap!
If this is the first time you’re hearing about golden milk aka turmeric milk aka turmeric latte, you’re in for a great surprise! Friends, welcome to your new favourite nutrition-rich night cap drink. If you haven’t tried it, you might be thinking “turmeric…in a sweet drink?!” well make no mistake, it works perfectly here and has been for thousands of years dating back to Asia. Need more convincing to check it out plus the benefits of turmeric? While shooting this recipe, my husband gave it a taste, declaring “this is the BEST milk drink ever! It’s so good!”. Say no more.
WHAT IS TURMERIC MILK/GOLDEN MILK?
Mini history on turmeric milk before we get into the delicious pumpkin spice-ness I’ve added to it. Like mentioned above, it’s been used in Asia for centuries, and is a nutrition-packed, anti-oxidant rich, delicious hot milk drink that you’ll not only love but is really great for you.
BENEFITS OF TURMERIC MILK/GOLDEN MILK
Turmeric itself is loaded with antioxidants which prove very helpful for any inflammation in the body (the main active ingredient is called curcumin). I actually also use turmeric in my face mask, which made an INSANE difference. The addition of honey, coconut oil and cinnamon not only contribute to these properties, but add healthy fats to the drink. It really helps to boost your immunity and improve digestion, and does all of this while tasting delicious. P.S. you can make this a pumpkin spice turmeric coconut milk. Just coconut milk instead of almond milk if you’d prefer.
Speaking of tasting delicious, there’s nothing disappointing about this flavour. I like to strain mine afterwards in a small sieve which helps to blend the flavours together even more. The pumpkin spice flavours that I added gives it a delicious fall flavour perfect for your new nightly routine for the upcoming fall holiday. Can you tell I’m excited for fall?!
