Iced Golden Milk Turmeric Latte (Paleo, Vegan, Anti-Inflammatory)

I’m not sure what prompted my obsession, but I was fascinated by this three-thousand-year-old holistic system of health, based on our individual compositions. It was the first time I really began to think that maybe the ideal diet varies from person to person.

Here’s the gist, at the most elementary and probably misrepresentative level:

Ayurveda is an ancient system of medicine, considered the oldest, or one of the oldest, in the world. Its tenets include universal interconnectedness, knowing and treating body composition, and balancing your body’s composition, rather than treating the symptoms.

There are three body compositions, or doshas, as they’re called in Ayurveda: pitta, vatta, kapha.

Me? I’m a pitta, through and through. If you knew me for five seconds you’d know I’m a pitta: a fiery Aries, ENTJ, type 4, type A+ go go go do do doer who lives in extremes. I run hot, flush easily, and crave spicy food daily. On top of that, I have a naturally muscular frame and tons of energy. So what does Ayurveda prescribe for me?


  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk from carton vanilla or plain is fine
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp. maple syrup divided if you'd prefer an "ombré" look
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • Pinch ground black pepper
  • Pinch ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Pour over ice and enjoy!
  2. If you'd like to pour the "golden milk" part over plain milk, like in my photos, combine the almond milk with 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup and stir well. Pour over two glasses filled with ice. In a cocktail shake, combine the coconut milk, all the spices, 2 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup, and plenty of ice. Shake well and pour over cups filled with ice and sweetened almond milk. Enjoy!
