About the blend
Superlatte’s Golden Latte blend pays homage to a traditional Indian health elixir knows as Haldi Doodh or Golden Milk. This wonderful ancient recipe centres around turmeric, a star superfood ingredient that helps lower inflammation, boosts brain health and mood, and assists digestion. Added to our organic turmeric, a host of anti-oxidant rich spices including cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and nutmeg up both the flavour and all-round health benefits of this small batch blend. Finally, we add a pinch of black pepper to increase the bio-availability of turmeric to the body, as well as himalayan salt and organic coconut blossom to lightly sweeten. With non-irradiated spices, as well as no added flavours or artificial anything, Superlatte’s Golden Latte makes an excellent base to start this easy iced turmeric latte recipe.

MAKE IT YOUR WAY
For a plant based protein boost, added a table spoon of either hemp protein, pea protein or brown rice protein.
We like a teaspoon of all 3 to increase the amino acid profile.
A tablespoon of chia seeds adds beneficial fibre, important for assisting gut-health.
Replace the coconut ice cream with frozen banana, mango or pineapple for a fruity twist.
Need it supercharged? Add a teaspoon of any of the following ground superfood powders: turmeric, macca, baobab.
Want it sweeter? Opt for a teaspoon of unrefined maple syrup, coconut blossom sugar, mesquite or lacuma.
We love Almond Creamery’s Nutty Latte for our dairy-free milk. It combines almond, cashew, coconut and dates. Yum!
Crushed ice tips
Crushed iced is available to buy from a variety of outlets.
Make your own with a crushed ice machine.
Freeze ice using a moulded ice tray that creates small or thin ice – easier on your blender.
Homemade Vegan Coconut Ice Cream
Our homemade dairy free and vegan coconut ice cream could not be easier to make. You’ll need an ice cream machine – we love this one from Krups at Yuppiechef (well worth the small investment), quality canned organic coconut milk, and an unrefined sugar syrup like coconut blossom sugar, maple, agave or date.
