Golden milk lattes! Yay! We have an easy golden milk recipe that has all the benefits of the original ayurvedic brew — and then some — but takes two minutes to whip up and enjoy. 

It’s so creamy, delicious, light, and frothy that it’s almost too good to be true. Fortunately for us, it’s not.

Whether you’re a coffee lover or you can’t stomach the thing, this golden milk latte recipe will rock your world. 

I’ve been into golden milk lattes lately, and I’m not the only one; the fitness and holistic wellness worlds are catching up to the health benefits of turmeric. Golden milk lattes are popping up everywhere - from juice bars to coffee shops.

And that’s amazing! 

The not-so-great news is that not every golden milk latte out there is as healthy as it sounds. Some brands are adding syrups and hidden sugars to their recipes to make them more palatable (read: unnecessarily sweet!) 

Our golden milk ingredients do include a natural sweetener, but you can have it very low sugar and 0 fat.
