Two iced golden milks on a marble surface

Iced Golden Milk Latte (Paleo, Vegan)

This iced golden milk latte is just delicious, plus it's loaded with anti-inflammatory health benefits and ancient healing spices. This iced version is refreshing, super easy to make, and comes together in just a few minutes. Great before bed, too.
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 0 minutes
Total: 5 minutes


  • Cocktail shaker


  • 2-3 cups milk of choice like almond, macadamia, or coconut. See Note 1
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Use 2 cups milk for a sweeter, more spiced drink; use closer to 3 for a milder version. 
  • Shake the mixture well and pour over ice into two serving glasses. Serve and enjoy!

For an Ombré Iced Golden Milk (Optional)

  • If you'd prefer an "ombré" look, like in my photos, first pour half of the milk over ice into two glasses. Then, proceed with the recipe: combine remaining ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake well, and pour into prepared glasses.


  • Milk: If you use coconut milk, make sure it's from the carton. Coconut milk from the can is too thick to use exclusively in this recipe.
  • Make Ahead Option: To make this ahead, simply stir all ingredients together and keep in an airtight container. Shake or whisk vigorously before serving. Pour over ice and enjoy.
  • Turmeric: You can heat this mixture up before chilling it to better activate the anti-inflammatory ingredients in the turmeric. I recommend heating it until very warm then letting cool naturally without adding ice. Adding ice will dilute the drink.
  • Make it Keto/Low Carb: Simply use a low carb milk of choice (Like unsweetened almond milk) and use powdered erythritol or Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup in place of the maple syrup.
  • Storage: Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
