If you were looking for a great warm fall drink to have later in the day, look no further than a pumpkin spice golden milk latte. While this recipe doesn’t date back as far as Sarah Munro’s* other recipes, turmeric has been used for centuries to help reduce inflammation and load you up with antioxidants.

This drink, which can also be made with coconut milk or whole milk, is sweet, warm, and so satisfying on a chilly fall evening. Despite being called a latte, there is no coffee or caffeine in this drink. The addition of cinnamon, coconut oil, ginger, and honey adds fats and anti-viral goodness. And the pumpkin spice flavor just adds to the fall feels.

Sarah Munro’s Pumpkin Spice Golden Milk Latte

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil

GARNISH OPTIONS:

  • dash of vanilla extract
  • extra ginger
  • extra cinnamon
  • whipped cream

DIRECTIONS:

  • Add all the ingredients to a pot, stir and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to a simmer for about 2 minutes, stirring together occasionally.
  • Remove pot from stove whisk together. If you’d like extra froth on top, you can use an immersion blender.
  • If using freshly grated ginger, you should strain, otherwise straining through a mini sieve is optional.
  • Pour into a mug, garnish with a bit of cinnamon and enjoy!

In a small saucepan, heat at all ingredients together (except for the garnish options) and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for two minutes. Stir frequently. (Do not overheat as you will scorch the milk. While this recipe uses almond milk, any kind of milk can be substituted. My favorite is whole milk since the fat prevents the milk from scorching which is really easy to do.)

Remove the pot from the stove and whisk the ingredients together or use a tiny immersion blender to blend the ingredients.

If you’re going to use fresh ginger, strain the milk through a sieve as you pour the milk into a mug. Garnish however you please!

This makes 1 serving.
