Golden milk lattes are making a big yellow splash on TikTok. Also known as turmeric milk, the bright drink originated in India and is made with a milk of your choice, turmeric, black pepper, ginger, cinnamon, and a sweetener like honey or maple syrup. The drink is packed with antioxidants and has many other health benefits including reducing inflammation and boosting immunity. Not to mention, it’s beautiful to look at. Here are 5 absolutely gorgeous golden milk lattes on TikTok.
A traditional golden milk latte (“haldi doodh”)
This filmer shares her own personal experience with golden milk lattes growing up in India. While mixing the ingredients into a paste, she explains how she never liked the drink growing up. But since it’s become a trend, it’s her time to shine. She garnishes the bright yellow drink with vibrant pink flowers for a mesmerizing color contrast that’s almost too good to drink.
Dirty golden milk latte
This version of the bright beverage incorporates coffee to create a hypnotizing dark swirl within the sea of yellow. Top with some whipped cream and more turmeric powder and you’ve got yourself some liquid eye candy.
Golden milk latte with fresh ingredients
This golden milk enthusiast opts for fresh ginger instead of powdered for an extra sharp gingery taste. She also squeezes some lemon juice into the drink while it’s simmering on the stove, which will surely give it some added zip.
Iced golden milk latte
For an aesthetically pleasing way to cool down on a warm day, an iced golden milk latte does the trick. This filmer adds a double shot of espresso for a little energy boost, but it’s not necessary. After adding the spices, she blends it all up and pours in a healthy amount of ice. Plant-based milk (or cow milk) makes this drink a creamy way to beat the heat.
Toasted coconut sunrise latte
This golden milk latte gets its name from the pink hue provided by beetroot powder. The filmer mixes their turmeric milk with their beet liquid to create the yellowy pink gradient of a morning sunrise. The drink gets topped with some toasted coconut to give you a true taste of vacation life.
