Creamy Turmeric Latte
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 2 cups
  • 1 can (13.5 fl oz or 398 ml) full cream coconut milk OR 2 cups coconut milk beverage, unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger powder
  • Pinch ground cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of ground black pepper (or 1 swirl with pepper mill)
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey (or maple syrup)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence or ¼ teaspoon vanilla bean powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Ghee or Coconut oil (ONLY if NOT using full cream coconut milk from the can)
  1. Combine everything in a high-powered blender and whizz away. If you are using full fat coconut milk from a can, the mixture once blended will be thick and creamy. It will liquefy once heated.
  2. Pour mix into a small stainless steel pot and heat gently, do not boil.
  3. Serve immediately sprinkled with a little cinnamon.
  4. Can be stored in refrigerator (it may thicken again), but serve warm.
  5. The richest flavor is achieved with full fat coconut milk and ghee.
  6. You can substitute the coconut milk with almond milk, the flavor will be different though.
