Looking for more turmeric recipes and love golden milk? You’re going to love this turmeric chai latte! Look no further if you crave something warm after your breakfast. This new spin on golden milk will change your mornings for the better.
This chai golden milk is not only super delicious, but also super-easy. It’s best when made in the blender as it gets super frothy, just like your favorite coffee shop would make it. However, if you don’t have a blender that opens on top (do NOT use a screw-bottom blender), you can also make this on the stovetop using a whisk to combine everything nicely. Just make sure you grind your spices first.
This turmeric chai latte will keep you full all morning. This is due in part to the healthy fats used like almond butter and raw coconut oil.
The addition of chai spices like cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper take this latte to the next level, adding tons of vibrant, spicy flavor. I like to sweeten my turmeric lattes with raw honey, but if you’re a vegan maple syrup or coconut nectar would work well too.
