Today, you’re getting the best of two drinks merged into one seriously delicious latte. The first drink is a golden latte, which is turmeric blended into warm milk at its most basic. The second drink is a matcha latte (matcha green tea powder mixed into warm milk).

The infusion, aka a golden matcha latte, is the perfect balance of peppery spice and subtle sweetness mixed into a luscious latte. Here are three reasons why you need to make a matcha golden milk latte asap!

  • Matcha is rich in antioxidants, and turmeric is naturally anti-inflammatory.
  • Lightly caffeinated – Matcha isn’t as caffeinated as coffee but has enough caffiene for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up.
  • Quick and easy – you’re going to love it!

🍵 Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make a frothy, perfectly spiced matcha turmeric latte,

  • Ground Turmeric Power – This vibrant yellow spice has a peppery-earthly flavor and pairs well with milk. It’s also anti-inflammatory and loaded with antioxidants.
  • Matcha Green Tea Powder – Matcha is a Japanese powdered green tea. It is made by mixing green tea powder with hot water or milk. You’ll need hot water to dissolve the matcha with the turmeric powder for this recipe.
  • Hot Water – To dissolve the matcha powder and turmeric powder.
  • Milk – Whole milk or any plant-based milk for a dairy-free and vegan golden matcha latte. Oat milk, soy milk, coconut milk, almond milk, and cashew milk are great options.

❔Questions + quick tips

  • Iced latte option – Craving something cooler? This latte is just as delicious iced. You can skip warming the milk and jump ahead to blending the turmeric-matcha liquid with cold milk. Once mixed, pour over ice and serve.
  • Sweetening your latte – To balance out the peppery turmeric, add something sweet like cane sugar, light brown sugar, or simple syrup. To make a refined sugar-free golden milk latte, sweeten your drink with maple syrup, honey, or coconut sugar.
  • Mix by hand or with a blender – You can also toss the milk and turmeric-matcha liquid into a high-speed blender instead of mixing it manually.

What does turmeric matcha taste like?

On its own, turmeric is intense and peppery, but the matcha green tea powder makes it pleasantly herbal and earthy. The two are a delightful pair of flavors to sip on!

A matcha powder with a vibrant green hue is generally higher-quality and better-tasting. A “ceremonial blend” is budget-friendly and delicious. It runs within the $15 – $25 range.

🥄 How to serve

Feel free to serve your turmeric matcha as is or spruce it with sweeteners and syrups.

  • Add warming spice – A pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, or pumpkin spice to enrich the latte with a warming flavor.
  • Sage-infused matcha turmeric latte – Add sweet, herbal notes with a tablespoon or two of sage-infused simple syrup.
  • Pineapple-ginger golden matcha latte – Mix in pineapple ginger syrup for next-level flavor.

♻️ How to store

Good news! You can store extra golden matcha for later. Double or triple the recipe and store the remaining in the fridge:

  1. Refrigerator Storage: Pour cooled latte into a glass container with a tight-fitting lid. If iced, strain first. Store in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. Stir and reheat or pour over a fresh glass of ice before serving.
  2. Freezer Storage: Another option is freezing the liquid in ice cube trays. Then, you can use the cubes to make future iced matcha turmeric lattes.
