A tranquil golden brew that combines the warmth of turmeric, milk, and spices for a soothing evening embrace.

Did you know?

Golden Milk is also known as 'Haldi Doodh' in India and is a staple in Ayurvedic practices, cherished for its anti-inflammatory properties.

As the sun sets and the evening hues drape the sky, there lies a moment of calm as perfect as the serene streets of Accra. Let's bring that tranquility to your kitchen with a cup of Golden Milk Latte, a concoction with deep roots in health and tradition. Picture the vibrant yellow of turmeric, the spice of ginger, a sweet caress of honey, the warmth of cinnamon, and the creaminess of milk merging into a cup of pure comfort. This drink doesn't just warm your hands; it's a hug for your soul. Let the mixture simmer while the spices release their hidden notes, their fragrances enveloping you in a heady embrace. A sip of this ancient brew carries with it whispered tales from far-flung lands, where spices were once worth their weight in gold. Embrace this beverage, and let it lull you into a gloaming reverie, as wholesome as it is healing.


  • 250 ml milk (dairy or plant-based)
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 small piece of fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • A dash of vanilla extract (optional)


  1. In a small saucepan, combine the milk, turmeric, grated ginger, cinnamon, and a pinch of black pepper.
  2. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring the mixture to a gentle simmer. Stir occasionally to ensure the spices are well mixed into the milk.
  3. Continue to simmer for about 10 minutes, allowing the spices to infuse their flavors into the milk.
  4. Remove the saucepan from the heat and strain the mixture through a fine mesh to remove the grated ginger.
  5. Stir in the honey or maple syrup, adding more to taste as desired. If using, add a dash of vanilla extract for a warm aroma.
  6. Pour the Golden Milk Latte into a mug. If you prefer froth, you can whisk the latte rapidly for a minute or use a milk frother.
  7. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top for decoration and serve warm.

Add some extra love

For an extra indulgent twist, top your latte with a dollop of whipped cream or a sprinkle of turmeric before serving.
