Golden Almond Latte Recipe

Updated: Feb 5, 2023

Starting my mornings with this one lately... I realized that sometimes I miss some creamy texture in my mornings, and especially when the breezy chill days start coming. So I found this Golden Latte to be perfect, especially if I am not drinking coffee. It's also very easy to make.


My morning drink

Here is why some of the ingredients make the detail: The pinch of black pepper is not really for flavor but it activates the turmeric (learned that from a client of mine from India), and if you want you can add a little coconut oil, to make it easier for some of the vitamins to be absorbed by your body. I personally don't, as I like my latte really creamy - I found that the almond butter also helps with that.


If you are in a low carb season (like WILDFIT® Spring), definitely use Almond milk and no honey/maple syrup. If not, you can adjust to the desired level of sweetness. I personally never have it with honey/maple syrup as I love the taste as is.


Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons almond butter

  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus additional for serving

  • 1 small cinnamon stick

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

  • tiny pinch ground black pepper

  • Optional: 2 teaspoons honey (or maple syrup, if vegan)

(note: if you want to add some seasonal touch, you can add some pumpkin spice to it)

Easy and quick to make!

Directions

In a small saucepan add all the ingredients and stir until the powders are all mixed in. Take it to medium heat for about 5 minutes or less, always stirring. Once it starts bubbling (don't let it boil), remove it from the heat.

Remove cinnamon stick (if you want- I like to keep mine and bite it afterward) and serve it on a mug, sprinkling cinnamon on top
