Introduction: Golden Milk

About: Polymath and idiot. Mostly idiot.

Tumeric Latte is also called Golden Milk, and became popular last year. There are many different recipes, this one is easy to make and elegant.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 200ml almond milk (1 cup)
  • 120ml water (1/2 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger
  • 1 tablespoon agave syrup (or honey)
  • 1 teaspoon curcuma (tumeric)
  • 1 knife point nutmeg
  • 1 knife point pepper


Step 2: Grate the Rhizomes

Peel the rind of the ginger and then grate it into a cooking pot. It is easier to use dried powder tumeric, but not as tasty if you use a fresh root of curcuma. But before you touch curcuma, use disposable gloves. It contains iodine and other substances that will dye your skin and finger nails for weeks. Once it was also called Indian Saffron. Avoid wooden spoons and any other natural material during the preparation.

Step 3: Mix

Add nutmeg and pepper to the grated roots. The pepper contains piperine which helps to digest the curcumin of tumeric. The solution is complete with 120ml water added.

Step 4: Reducing

Boil on medium heat while stirring regularly. Once the mixture starts to thicken, add a tablespoon of agave syrup to enhance the thickening. If it is all reduced to a paste, remove from heat.

Step 5: Storing

Take the paste and store it in a little container in the fridge. Leave a little bit in the pot for your first batch. Pour a cup of almond milk into the cooking pot and heat again. This will also clean your cooking pot a bit because the resin of the curcuma root can be sticky.

Step 6: Serving

After heating the almon milk with the paste, serve in a cub with a salty cookie or pretzel. The salt binds to fat acids and improves the sweetness without adding sugar.

Enjoy your Golden Milk!
