Jump to Recipe

Enjoy a glass of chilled vegan turmeric latte on a long summer day for instant refreshment. Or sip a hot turmeric latte whenever your feeling under-the-weather, need a mood boost or pick-me-up. The sweet and spicy milky flavours are so delicious and satisfying.

This vegan turmeric latte is a recipe from the plant-based Dr Will Bulsiewicz Fiber Fueled book, and can be ready to enjoy in less than 10 minutes. This is a no-caffeine recipe.

turmeric latte served in large yellow mug with white pattern, yellow check tea towel and black and white tea towel.

I bought my copy of Fiber Fueled from Audible, UK. I listened to the audio book at bedtime and the narrator of Fiber Fueled lulled me off to slumber with lots of fascinating information including what foods were amazing for gut health.

Although I have given the book a second and third listen while I was more awake, as I was cooking dinner!

The Amazing Benefits Of Turmeric

I have enjoyed this turmeric latte so many times and it always gives me an energy and mood boost. So I thought I would share this recipe so more people can benefit from the goodness contained within this mug of exotic, liquid gold.

The blend of spices, sweetness, and pepperiness that this vegan turmeric latte brings never fails to warm me up especially on a chilly day. The first sip brings instant warmness and comfort and a feeling of yes this is just what I need.

Especially when I feel under-the-weather, have the inkling that I am incubating a cold or similar bug, or a bit down in mood, or just fancy a hot, nourishing drink then I will have one of these turmeric lattes.

Turmeric is an excellent source of curcumin which studies have shown to have a vast range of beneficial effects.

Also consuming black pepper with turmeric helps to increase our bodies ability to access the curcumin. So whether you have a curry don’t forget to add some black pepper!

Science based evidence have found that turmeric may be beneficial in helping some ailments especially inflammatory based disease including:

  • Small saucepan/milk pan


  • 500 ml plant-based milk .
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup or your choice of sugar/syrup/sweetener e.g. agave/date/stevia/coconut sugar or just ordinary sugar.
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch ground nutmeg
  • pinch ground cardamom
  • pinch fresh ground black pepper corns add more if you enjoy the peppery taste. I often do.


  • Pour the milk in the saucepan and add the rest of the ingredients.
    Whisk with a fork to combine.
  • Bring to the boil. lower the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes
    Stir a few times to make sure the milk doesn't burn or stick to the pan.
  • Pour into your choice of drinking vessels.

For an iced turmeric latter version:

  • Add all ingredients to a jar with a lid and shoogle well to combine.
    Or to extract more of the spices goodness prepare the latte as above, cool and then chill.
  • Place ice-cubes in your glasses and pour your latte over.


Recipe notes:
  • Store leftover turmeric latte in the fridge, in a covered container, for up to 3 days. Although be careful that you don’t store it in your favourite container as the turmeric can stain some materials.
  • To reheat pour back into your pan and gently heat until piping hot.
  • For an iced turmeric latte enjoy chilled poured over ice cubes.
  • Adjust the spices to your own preferences. I often add an extra 1/4 tsp of cinnamon as I enjoy the extra cinnamon flavour.
