Anti-inflammatory Iced Golden Milk Turmeric Latte (Paleo, AIP, Vegan)

Turmeric is one of my all-time favorite ingredients! It has amazing flavor, beautiful color, and incredible anti-inflammatory qualities. I use it in soups, salad dressings, and of course, drinks. Hot turmeric tea is one of my secret weapon flu busters, and iced turmeric lattes are the perfect summertime drink.

The golden and orange color of turmeric is absolutely gorgeous, which is why it’s often referred to as golden milk. The vibrant color makes this such a fun drink to make and serve. It gives off serious trendy coffee shop vibes, but is easily made at home, and is totally caffeine free.

The Ingredients You Need To Make This Anti-inflammatory Iced Golden Milk Turmeric Latte

Almond Milk

Almond milk from MALK is what I always use for my lattes, but you can also use coconut milk.

Turmeric

Turmeric is the star ingredient in this latte, and for good reason! Turmeric is a powerhouse spice used in Ayurvedic cooking for thousands of years and is known the have the following benefits…

  • Supports immune health
  • Aids in anti-inflammation
  • Eases joint inflammation
  • Increases the antioxidant count in the body
  • Supports the health of the liver
  • Benefits of autoimmune healing (especially rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Supports anti-aging
  • and more!

It’s important to remember that turmeric needs to be paired with black pepper to increase the absorption. This can be omitted for AIP, but it’s preferable to keep it in. Just a pinch doesn’t make the drink taste peppery.

And a quick turmeric tip! If you find yourself staining anything in the process of making this drink, remember that turmeric is photosensitive. You can leave anything that gets stained in direct sunlight for several hours to help wash the stain away.  It’s a good trick to know when you’re making this turmeric latte several times a week.

Ginger

Ginger gives the drink a bit of a kick.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon pairs very well with turmeric and adds some sweet undertones to the drink.

Vanilla extract (or vanilla bean powder)

This adds more of that trendy coffee shop flavor to the drink. Vanilla bean powder needs to be used for AIP.

Maple syrup

This drink has a lot of strong flavors, so maple syrup helps sweeten it. You can leave it out if you’d rather have it unsweetened, but I highly recommend it.
