Golden milk latte in a cup dried roses sprinkled on top and fresh flowers in the background


  • 2 cups milk any milk of your choice
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 tsp maple syrup or another sweetener of choice
  • 1 inch cinnamon stick
  • 1/2 inch ginger fresh
  • 1 tsp instant coffee granules
  • pinch black pepper


  • Place all ingredients, except coffee granules, into a small saucepan. Heat on a medium-high heat whilst whisking with a balloon whisk. This will ensure you get a nice thick froth
  • Heat until the milk mixture is very hot, but not boiling
  • Add the coffee granules and stir well to mix well
  • Pour into two cups, sprinkle with pepper and enjoy


  • You can use any variety of milk you prefer. I opt for what’s available at home and tend to alternate between coconut and soy milk.
  • If you have fresh turmeric, by all means you can use that instead of powder, but I find the powder emits more flavour.
  • As odd as it may sound, the black pepper is an important addition; it helps to increase the bioavailability of curcumin – the active compound in turmeric that’s touted for innumerable health benefits.
  • In other words, the compound piperine in black pepper increases the absorption of curcumin. Let’s not forget it. You can choose any way to sweeten this golden milk turmeric coffee – maple syrup, honey, agave or enjoy without any sweetness. The spices help distract your taste buds from the sweetness.
