Servings 1



  • 1 cup homemade cashew milk recipe below
  • sweetener of choice to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • small pinch ground nutmeg
  • couple twists of black pepper
  • 2 shots of espresso


  • If you can add spices/powders to your milk frother (check the manual), combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT the espresso in the pitcher of your milk frother. Set to your ideal temperature and let it heat up while you make the espresso.
  • Pour two shots of espresso into a large mug. Once the spice-frothed milk is ready, pour it over the espresso. Sprinkle the golden serene latte with extra cinnamon if you like.


  • The quality of your turmeric makes a difference. My preferred turmeric is from Diaspora Co. The flavour blows me away every time. 
  • You can sweeten this based on your preference. I like about a teaspoon of maple syrup.
  • No espresso, no problem. Just use about ⅓ - ½ cup of strong coffee instead.
  • If you have a high speed blender, you can simply combine the following in the blender pitcher on high for the same effect: 12oz hot coffee, 3 tablespoons of raw cashews, all of the below listed spices, vanilla, and sweetener. Blend for a minute and done!
  • If you don’t have a frother, heat the milk with the spices, vanilla, and sweetener in a saucepan on the stove over medium heat, whisking vigorously. Once it’s simmering, simply pour it over the coffee. No foam with this option, but it’s still tasty. You can also transfer the heated milk to a high speed blender before pouring over the coffee for some froth.
