Creamy and comforting, golden milk chai lattes are so easy to make. The slightly spicy, warm drink is so cozy on winter evenings and holiday mornings. Hot water is mixed with a blend of maple syrup for flavor and sweetness, spices like turmeric, and your favorite steamed dairy free milk for this simple recipe. Turmeric powder provides this chai latte with a golden color, plus health benefits like antioxidants. For more information on the power of turmeric and why we love it here at LivBar, check out our blog all about it here.
Some versions of golden milk lattes are ambitious with fresh grated turmeric and ginger root. But this simple version comes together in a few minutes and can be multiplied for larger batches.
This golden milk chai latte is inspired by our Ginger Lemon Turmeric LivBar as we welcome the winter season. It’s the perfect time to cozy up with a warm beverage on rainy or snowy days. This recipe is a mix of both the chai latte and a golden milk latte, which share some similar flavors: Imagine ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, and pure maple syrup blended with a creamy milk. You can use whatever dairy free milk sounds good to you in this recipe, like oat milk, almond milk, or coconut milk.
