This frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino is the most refreshing and delicious way to get the anti-inflammatory benefits in a turmeric recipe! The frozen version of my iced golden milk turmeric latte, this frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino is perfectly creamy, icy, sweet, and spiced.

It’s summer. Doesn’t it feel like it there?

We skipped over spring entirely here. One day, while we were still in Europe last month, I checked the weather back home: 35º. When we arrived back in the States, it was 85 and humid as the jungle. What… I… How did that happen?! Who allowed that?!

Regardless of whether your transition to summer is more of a gradual warming of the breeze or a sudden, full-stop, perma-sweat onset, it’s time for cooler drinks, icy treats, refreshing recipes. I shared my iced golden milk turmeric latte recently – perfect for warmer afternoons – and they’ve been such a hit since. And I get it! I absolutely love the flavors and benefits of a golden milk turmeric latte but sipping a mug of the creamy, warm yellow tonic just sort of loses its appeal around, oh, 93º and 100% humidity.

That’s why the iced golden milk turmeric latte made so much sense: all the gorgeous spices and their nourishing properties but none of the sticky heat. Just iced, cool, refreshing. So what’s the only thing that could make this recipe better?

Turning it into a slushie. Enter the frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino.

This frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino is just as easy as my iced golden milk turmeric latte but way more fun. It’s spicy and creamy and sweet but perfectly balanced – not too much of anything – and the frothy ice is just summer perfection.

My favorite way to enjoy this frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino is from inside my screened-in porch, watching my child run around asking me if I’m seeing him blow all the bubbles and climb all the slides and fight all the bugs. Yes, dear! I see you, love! Oh do I see you! And it’s totally self-care, too, knowing I’m enjoying myself, taking a moment to chill, and nourishing my body at the same time.

See? I just justified a once daily habit for you, girl. Do it!

You’ll love this frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino because it’s nourishing but refreshing, sweet but balanced, spiced but not too spicy. It’s stunning and icy and perfect.

If you like this frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino recipe, you’ll definitely like my iced golden milk turmeric latte recipe, too!

Frozen Golden Milk Turmeric Frappuccino (Paleo, Vegan, Anti Inflammatory)


Prep 2 minutes
Total 2 minutes
This frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino is the most refreshing and delicious way to get the anti-inflammatory benefits in a turmeric recipe! The frozen version of my iced golden milk turmeric latte, this frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccino is perfectly creamy, icy, sweet, and spiced. Paleo + vegan.
2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups dairy-free milk of your choice we like coconut milk from the carton
  • 2 cups ice
  • 3-4 Tbsp. maple syrup see note
  • 1-1 ½ tsp. ground turmeric see note
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 Pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 Pinch ground cardamom
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender, making sure you blend until ice is just crushed but not overly liquid. Serve immediately.
These frozen golden milk turmeric frappuccinos can be a bit stronger than the iced version if you use the recommended 1 1/2 teaspoons turmeric (for health and anti-inflammatory benefits!). If you use 1 1/2 teaspoons, I recommend also using 4 tablespoons maple syrup to offset the spiciness of the turmeric. If you use 1 teaspoon turmeric, you might only need 3 tablespoons maple syrup.

  1. I used splenda brown sugar, it’s what I had on hand. I did not expect this to be so delicious. The coconut milk (mine was from a can, plus water to make the 2cups required) gave a wonderful creamy mouthfeel and the spices were wonderfully warm with the cold ice. Adding nutmeg, you’d think you were drinking egg nog. Excellent recipe!5 stars

      I’m so happy you enjoyed it, Melly! Nutmeg sounds like a delicious addition, I’ll have to try that myself.

  2. I don’t make turmeric lattes often since sometimes they don’t often come out right, but this is amazing! The flavor is not overpowering (I lent on the safe side and only added the 1 tablespoon turmeric) and it’s so refreshing! I’ll be making your tumeric latte soon 😄5 stars

      Thank you so much for the review, Juleene! So happy you enjoyed this recipe. Let us know how you like the latte!

  3. Delicious!! This frozen version is such a treat. I always use the full amount of turmeric, and I’ve actually mixed a large batch of the spices in an old spice jar so I don’t have to measure them all every time! (Yeah, I make this pretty regularly.) I also make a few adjustments for my personal preferences.

    First, I’ve gradually switched the syrup out for about 1.5-2 fresh dates. The resulting drink is totally delicious, and sweetened with a whole food! Plus, I love the caramel flavor the dates add.
    Second, I always use fresh ginger. If you can get it, it makes a world of difference in taste!
    Third, I use full-fat canned coconut milk mixed with some water.

    And last (I know it sounds nuts, but stick with me here), I blend in an egg. I’ve long been a fan of egg blended in my coffee, the creamy frothiness just can’t be beat, so I thought I’d try it in this. Wouldn’t you know it, takes this drink to the next level of delicious creaminess! Plus, the calories make for a nice light breakfast when I don’t feel like eating in the AM. Weird I know, but after getting past my mental block with raw egg, I’m totally sold!!

    Golden milk in frappuccino form is absolutely genius. Thanks for this recipe Cheryl!5 stars

  4. How much Erythritol or monk fruit sweetener would be equivalent to the amount of maple syrup (for us keto folks)? Thanks5 stars
