Best Golden Milk Latte (24K Gold in a Cup)
Golden Milk Latte's have become the latest trendy, instagram-worthy drink at all the coffee shops in America. And it's not just the deliciousness that keeps people coming back for more, but the known health benefits that come with it. Only downside: cost! I see these latte's going anywhere from $5 to $7 bucks per cup and that can add up quick if you like indulging in delicious drinks as a part of your morning routine like me. So I resorted to my oils (as I always do when trying to replicate something lol) and after experimenting through a few cups here and there, I finally nailed down the ratios and flavors in what is now my favorite Golden Milk Latte in all the land. Tastes so darn good and best part about it is I use 3 of my favorite winter essential oils in it so it's health benefits are enhanced to nothing less than 24K gold in a cup!
Here’s how you make it: 1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk
3 drops of Turmeric EO 2 drops of Ginger EO 2 drops of Cinnamon Bark EO 1 tbsp of Coconut oil 1 to 2 tbsp of honey (to taste) 1 pinch of powdered Turmeric (this is optional- I use it for its pretty color) Powdered cinnamon to sprinkle on top (also optional)
Directions: Bring the coconut milk to a soft boil and then throw in a blender with the rest of the ingredients except for the powdered cinnamon. Blend on high (I go all the way to 10 on my Vitamix ) for a good minute so it gets nice and frothy. The frothier the better if you ask me. Pour into a mug, sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon powder on top and enjoy that golden glow in your cup!
