I am very confident in my Golden Latte. In fact, I’ll put out a challenge to anyone that thinks they can make one better. Golden lattes in general are lovely. So warming and soothing. I’m a sucker for warm butter in a cup. The flavors are great and so are the health benefits. They’re neuroprotecive, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, anti-parasite, hormone building, enzyme rich.
There are many different ways to make golden lattes. I think most people make a proper golden milk, but I don’t always do that and didn’t here. I used a chaga and he shou wu decoction as the tea base, but you can use anything. I also much prefer to use turmeric juice. The flavor and color are just so much brighter.
Throw it all in the vtiamix and blend! And blend. And blend. Blend longer than you think.
An alternative is to use a chai tea. You can take all of those whole spices and make a tea with that.
Another method I recommend is making a simple nut milk, and then adding all of the spices as whole ingredients. Black sesame seed milk is a nice choice. You might have to microplane the nutmeg on the spot. I used ground spices because it was slim pickings in my cabinet.
If you think you can do better, bring it on. This Golden drink is sweet, it's tangy and will leave you feeling buzzed. In a good way.
