This golden turmeric latte recipe is packed with healthy ingredients you need in your life. I’m sure by now that you have heard all of the amazing benefits of turmeric, right?? If not, don’t worry, I’ll let you in on the secret surrounding this glorious drink (and how to make a turmeric latte). But first, I want to tell you more about this turmeric ginger latte! It makes an excellent warming drink any time of the day.
Want to know how I took this turmeric latte to the next level? I added protein to it! Not just any protein, but collagen peptides that have been shown to support gut health, heal leaky gut, soothe aching joints, and nourish your skin! With over 18 amino acids, this little supplement packs a ton of benefits.
I usually add a scoop or two to my smoothies, coffee, or bone broth, but then I thought…why not add it to one of the healthiest drinks imaginable and really pack a nutrient punch??
So that’s just what I did.
This golden milk latte is already loaded with inflammation-fighting compounds. We all face inflammation in our bodies, whether it’s from poor diet, not enough sleep, stress, or environmental stressors. By adding turmeric to your meals, you can help offset this inflammation.
I also added in some ginger to the golden latte, which is excellent for soothing your digestive system. And then cinnamon! Cinnamon has also been shown to regulate blood sugar and prevent neurological diseases like MS and Alzheimer’s. Have I convinced you to start sipping on this drink daily yet? I hope so!
How To Make A Turmeric Latte
This golden latte recipe is straightforward to make and just takes a few minutes. The best part is you only need 9 ingredients for this gourmet latte that you can make right at home.
- Heat ingredients in a saucepan – almond milk, coconut milk, coconut oil, collagen peptides, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom pods, and honey. Bring to a boil.
- Simmer and strain. Simmer for two minutes, then strain out any of the solids.
That’s all there is to it!
Can I Use Only Almond Milk Or Only Coconut Milk?
Yes, you can any type of milk you like for the base. I usually go with 1 cup of almond or hemp milk with 1/2 cup coconut milk, OR I just go with all coconut milk and thin it out a bit with some water. All coconut milk without the water is a bit thick for my taste.
You can also play around with the ratio of spices to see what you like best. I like mine heavy on the cinnamon, so I always add an extra dash or two to the top.
Does This Turmeric Latte Recipe Have Caffeine?
No, there is no caffeine in this latte recipe. We do not put any coffee or espresso in it, and none of the other ingredients have caffeine.
How Do I Make My Turmeric Ginger Latte Frothy?
You can easily make this golden turmeric latte frothy by using a handheld frother. Alternatively, a blender will also work, but is more to clean.
Do I Drink This Turmeric Latte Recipe Cold Or Hot?
The intention of this turmeric latte recipe is to drink it warm, so it relaxes you and rejuvenates your body as you sleep. The warming spices paired with a warm latte make a great combination.
However, it’s more than fine to sip on this golden turmeric latte cold if you prefer. Just pour the turmeric ginger latte over a glass of ice and sip it.
How Do You Store This Turmeric Ginger Latte?
If you happen to not finish it, you can store this turmeric ginger latte in a glass jar or another airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Must add black pepper to dramatically increase absorption of turmeric. The body can’t really absorb it without the properties of black pepper compared to what it is able to absorb with black pepper. The black pepper aids in such a way that it is almost pointless to drink it without. And u don’t taste it by the way when all the other ingredients are added.
Hello! Thanks for sharing! I just can’t find the Collagrn peptides… Where do you find them? Or… Maybe I can’t find them here, since I am in Mexico. Please help!
I love how easy it is to prepare this healthy turmeric latte. I’ll be making this often without the collagen peptides since I don’t have those at home, but everything else, I already stock them in my pantry. 🙂
This turmeric latte is so simple to make and so comforting. I made it and loved it perfect hot beverage for breakfast or as a midday snack.
Just a quick look at a picture of your turmeric latte had me running to the kitchen to make it!
I love this drink. It is so relaxing and the perfect way to end the day.
This was great! I had to look for cardamom pods.
Hi! Thanks for the great recipe! Was wondering if I could blend everything together the night before and just heat up in the morning? Would that affect the collagen any how? Thanks!!
This is totally delicious, Maya! I love turmeric and how good it is for you.
I just finished drinking a cup of this. It is absolutely delicious! Quick to make; I had everything on hand except the collagen peptides :\ and used 1/2 tsp ground cardamom as that’s what I had. Thank you so very much for sharing this. This is gonna be addicting, without a doubt.
Is it critical that you strain? I tried it last night and it tasted great but forgot to strain. I had a bit of a belly ache. Is that b/c of too much powdered tumeric (unstrained)?
It’s not critical! The stomach ache probably isn’t from not straining, I’d say something just didn’t sit right.
I did a little research and your tummy may have reacted that way to the collagen peptides. Maybe try adjusting that. I didn’t have the collagen peptides on hand and made it without. I have big-time problems with my stomach, had no problems with this.
Okay, you totally sold me on the benefits of turmeric 😀 Bonus points that this smoothie sounds delicious! Would love to start my morning with one of these.
This latte is gorgeous! I love all those health benefits of turmeric. I need to give this a try!
Love the creaminess of this smoothie and I’d love to give it a try! Quick question, I am not familiar with collagen peptides, where can I find those? I’ve enjoyed introducing tumeric into our diet recently and always looking for new ways to use it!
What an exotic beverage. In my culture also have many beverage and event dessert using turmeric.. this is something new for me. thx for sharing.
This looks so yummy! A healthy way to start the day!
Just put turmeric in everything and I’m happy!
