Okay so maybe it sounds a little unusual, but please let me convince you: this cashew golden milk latte is a day-making treat.
A golden milk latte is a milky beverage that is packed with turmeric, ginger, and other spices. It is smooth and luscious and creamy, extremely fragrant, fantastically healthy, and rich and filling (thanks, cashews!). It is delicious served hot or cold, but even in the winter I am a big fan of pouring this over ice and sipping it through a cute reusable straw.
While you can use any kind of store-bought plant-based or regular milk to make a golden milk latte, why would you not want to make a fresh, smooth, creamy cashew milk to work all that turmeric-y goodness into? And you know how we feel about cozy cashew lattes in general.
This is my favorite way. It is really just so yummy it can be a morning boost, a mid-day pick-me-up, or an evening wind-down treat, and every time it is so super good.
How to Make Golden Milk Lattes
Step 1: Add your cashews and water to the blender. Blitz and voil! Cashew milk.
Step 2: Bring your spices and sweetener to the party cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, honey and blend again.
Step 3: Keep it in a jar in the fridge for easy pouring + golden milk happiness all week long.
It is rich in flavor, texture, and good-for-the-body ingredients. It tastes like a dream come true. Cashew Golden Milk Lattes, man. This is where its at.
NOTE: Because the base of this is a homemade blended nut milk, there will be separation. That is normal and natural! Nothing is wrong with it, just give it a shake to re-incorporate.
Cashew Golden Milk Latte! Packed with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, honey, and a TON of good-for-the-body benefits. Just blend and pour!
- 1 cup cashews (roasted or raw, unsoaked straight out of the package)
- 6 cups water
- 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 2-inch knob fresh peeled ginger, or 2 tablespoons ginger paste
- 1/4 cup honey
- generous pinch of salt
- Blend the cashews and the water in a high-powered blender until very smooth (at least 1-2 minutes).
- Blend in the turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, honey, and salt. Taste and adjust.
- Serve warm or cold! Voila! So luscious, creamy, and delicious.
The golden milk lattes will separate that is to be expected so just keep em in jars with lids so you can give it a good shake up before drinking. These keep in the fridge for about 5 days.
Single Serving Version: Blend up the following 1.5 cups of water, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, small slice of fresh ginger, 1 tablespoon honey, tiny pinch of salt, 1/4 cup cashews.
Personally I prefer these cold, straight out of the fridge! When you heat this mixture, it will thicken. So if you want it hot, my recommendation would be to just make it single-serving and use with hot water (kind of like the cashew coffee) so you dont have to do any reheating.
Many blenders dont have the capacity for 6 cups of liquid, so usually I blend everything up with half of the water and then just do a quick blitz with the remaining water once everything is well-combined. If you dont have a high-powered blender, I recommend running the liquid through a nut milk bag or similar to filter out any chunks that get left behind.
Naturally there will be some grit in the bottom of the mug or glass. No big deal. Its just cinnamon and ginger remnants.
