Dairy Free Golden Latte Recipe

Dairy free golden lattes. Ah, the delicious creamy beverage that packs some serious punch when it comes to health benefits. Just a few worth mentioning:

  • anti-inflammatory properties aid in easing muscle soreness and can help relieve joint pain
  • can reverse insulin resistance (yes, really!), lower blood glucose levels, and delay the onset of type 2 diabetes
  • reduces cholesterol
  • reduce infection in the gut, prevent stomach ulcers, relieve stomach pain
  • curcumin aids in managing depression (without the side effects!)
  • can help fight cancer

I began drinking dairy free turmeric and ginger lattes (aka golden lattes) in New York and was hooked from the first sip. The creamy goodness paired with a slight kick from the ginger (and sans any caffeine that would later cause a crash) was exactly what I craved in a drink. Add to this the fact that you can enjoy it hot or cold, and it’s the perfect year-round beverage. I was sold before I even knew all the health benefits! Incase you missed it turmeric is freaking amazing.

My recipe calls for five ingredients and can be ready in less than two minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

  • combine all dry ingredients in a mug (turmeric, ginger, cinnamon)
  • add 2 teaspoons of water to the dry ingredients and mix until a smooth paste has formed
  • heat milk alternative (over the stove or in microwave) until desired temperature has been reached
  • pour milk alternative into the cup and gently combine the paste with milk
  • add honey and mix

That’s it! I like to store small amounts of this latte in my fridge to enjoy as a golden latte ‘shot’ that I can sip in the morning in a hurry. When you refrigerate this mix it will separate and can taste a bit bitter if not properly blended – so give it a good stir/shake before drinking.
