This vegan turmeric latte is my favourite caffeine-free moon milk recipe and I enjoy a cup of it every night before bed. This is a perfect winter hot drink recipe for a cosy evening - it will help you warm and survive cold winter nights. This chai spiced golden milk is soothing, warming and nourishing and thanks to turmeric it's full of anti-inflammatory benefits. This golden milk latte is spiced with cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, vanilla and black pepper. Perfectly sweet and creamy, this Indian-inspired hot drink will definitely liven up your evening. This turmeric latte recipe is dairy-free and gluten-free and can be also made refined sugar-free.
INGREDIENTS YOU WILL NEED
- plant milk of choice (I usually make my turmeric latte with oat milk as oat milk foams really well in this recipe but almond milk or soy milk is also an excellent option)
- turmeric powder
- black peppercorns
- cinnamon powder
- cardamom powder
- ginger powder
- nutmeg powder
- vanilla extract
- sweetener of choice (I blend my milk with dates for a healthier refined sugar-free version but this is optional – you can use maple syrup, date syrup or brown sugar instead)

- Serve with a tiny bit of cinnamon powder sprinkled on top.
