Black pepper activates turmeric. Use a tiny pinch or peppercorns.
If using whole fresh ginger, fresh turmeric, or peppercorns, strain before drinking!
For the frothed milk, I really love this milk frother. Do remember that dairy-free milk doesn't froth quite as well as regular milk!

  1. Can I use cows milk? Only asking as I run out of almond milk (Sunday afternoon and shops are closed) and I have a 5 a’clock start in the morning. So I need a good kick.

  2. Have you tried hemp milk?? It’s creamy and delicious. I’ve been vegan for 36 years and don’t care for Almond Milk lattes either. ?

  3. 5 stars
    I really haven’t liked latte’s since I cut out cow’s milk but this one has enough flavor that I don’t taste the almond milk. I will make this again!

  4. 5 stars
    THIS IS SO GOOD!! I was skeptical with the turmeric, but it’s delicious! I didn’t have espresso, I used half almond milk and half coffee, it was creamy, velvety, and decadent!

  5. 5 stars
    For me, this is a new way of preparing golden milk. But, it’s quite simple to make, that’s what I like about it, thanks!
