Turmeric Milk Latte Elevated


Turmeric Milk Latte Elevated | Nutrition Stripped

First there was Turmeric Milk and then Coffee Elevated, now a crazy beautiful merger of the two. And not to mention, Turmeric Tea, then Turmeric Porridge, then Turmeric Milkshake, then the Golden Savory Loaf, then about 100 more recipes including turmeric as the star ingredient, BUT I have yet to share with you the exact way I transform the NS famous Turmeric Milk recipe into a…latte. A frothy, creamy, ridiculously good Turmeric Milk Latte. Here we go friends, it’s a good one!

Turmeric, turmeric, turmeric.

If you’re new to Nutrition Stripped or have somehow missed out on my love of turmeric and why I think everyone should include it in their lifestyle to fight inflammation– then I highly recommend reading up on this blog post, this one, oh and this one too. There are a couple exceptions to the rule when it comes to those who shouldn’t use turmeric in this way (those of you on specific medications, just check with your doctor), but for the majority of us you’re good to go! We all encounter inflammation or inflammation producing activities in our life whether it’s from the environment, stress, or even exercising; we can all use a little inflammation fighting elixir and this one combines the best aspects of the Coffee Elevated with the classic Turmeric Milk.

MCT oil is the main ingredient that helps this become super creamy, frothy, and adds heaps of nutritional benefits. A couple answers to questions I’m anticipating with this one: 1) Do I need MCT oil? Yes I highly recommend using MCT oil to get the best nutrition and culinary benefits out of this recipe, 2) Isn’t this too much fat? No, don’t be afraid of the fat. Fat helps us burn fat and the type of fat in MCT oil is medium chain triglycerides (read more up on these here), and 3) does it taste good? Yes, it tastes amazing!

  • paulina

    Hi! Thanks so much for the post!

    The links to the ingredients aren’t working for me—can you let us know which type of MCT oil you prefer?

    Thanks for the amazing content! <3


    • McKel Hill

      Sorry about that Paulina! Thanks for letting us know- they’re all fixed now 😉

  • Victoria

    Considering how much I love your coffee, elevated and matcha latte andddd tumeric milk, I cannot wait to try this!

  • kati

    Yay! I love your other tumeric milk recipe so I can’t wait to try this one!!! 🙂

    • McKel Hill

      Enjoy Kati! It’s a goodieeeeee 😉

  • Karsyn

    Omg Mckel! Just made this and it’s sooo on point.

    • McKel Hill

      Yey! So glad you liked it Karsyn 😉

  • caitlin

    This is WONDERFUL! Made it today when I was chilled after a run… made a fabulous latte and warmed me from the inside out!

  • Fatima

    The original turmeric milk is one of my staples, can’t wait to try this version! Looks amazing, thanks McKel!

    • McKel Hill

      I have a hunch you’ll love this one too Fatima! 😉

  • Kristen

    OH man! SO good! I used 1T cacao butter instead of coconut milk and bumped the turmeric up a bit (I love it so). AMAZING. Thanks McKel!

    • McKel Hill

      Glad you enjoyed it Kristen! xxM

  • Margaret

    This is the best turmeric latte I’ve ever had!! I usually have your coffee elevated or this in the morning. I just have a question about how much coconut milk fat is too much…is it too much saturated fat if I have one of these a day? I know MCT are good for you but still curious if there is a limit. Thanks

    • McKel Hill

      So glad you enjoyed it Margaret! <3

      • Margaret

        What about the high amount of saturated fat?

  • Kim

    Any tips on cleaning your vitamix after the turmeric has been in it? I’ve tried baking soda, white vinegar, apple cider vinegar and nothing is getting rid of the yellow colour. Latte was delicious though:)

    • McKel Hill

      Baking soda, warm water, and soap then blend it up! 😉

  • Tammy

    I tried this yesterday, it was amazing! I have been looking for more ways to add turmeric to my diet.

    • Olivia Reeves

      So glad you enjoyed it Tammy! It’s definitely one of my favorites.

  • MLM

    I made this without the MCT oil, only b/c I didn’t have any, and added some matcha and it was heavenly! Thanks for the great recipe!

    • McKel Hill

      Glad you enjoyed it!

  • Miriam

    Hi – I’m new here and just learning my way around. This sounds terrific. I don’t use MCT oil – I use coconut oil for most of my cooking and frying needs. Can I use that? What is the difference between MCT Oil and Coconut Oil?


    • McKel Hill

      You can use coconut oil instead of MCT oil- MCT oil is pure medium chain triglycerides versus coconut oil that has a percentage of MCT’s. I hope that makes sense! You’ll still get great results with coconut oil 😉

  • Shelby

    Hi McKel! This recipe is golden! 😉 (see what I did there?) lol I used coconut oil instead of MCT oil and grated fresh turmeric instead! Soooo delicious! Thank you!

    • McKel Hill

      Ha ha ha- LOVE food puns! So glad you enjoyed this one Shelby 😉

  • Cheryl

    Do you normally drink this in the morning or evening?

    • McKel Hill

      Anytime of day!

  • Emma Messner

    Thanks for the recipe! I’ve been hearing lots of buzz about turmeric, and I think I’ve developed carpal tunnel, so I’d love to start getting tumeric in my foods!
    what does MCT oil stand for?

    Thanks! I’ll be sure to try this 🙂

    • McKel Hill

      Hope you like it Emma! There’s a link in my blog post in that paragraph where I talk about MCT to click to read more 😉

  • Eugenia

    This is UH-MAZING! It’s the perfect balance of sweet, warming, and awakening!

    • McKel Hill

      So glad you’re enjoying this Eugenia!

  • Julia

    So. Much. Yummm!!!

  • Julie

    Delicious! I was looking for a healthy mid morning coffee replacement and remembered the Minimalist Baker mentioning golden milk. I followed her link to you. This is the best recipe I’ve tried using turmeric. I didn’t even have to put my drink in the blender. Love it straight from the pan into the mug. I didn’t have any MCT oil, but added a teaspoon of collagen. I’ll be enjoying this drink daily. Thank you for the recipe.

  • Merle

    The only thing I’d change is the coconut milk you recommend. That one has guar gum (no Bueno), Natural Value does not (Bueno!)!

  • Deborah

    Would love to try this. Trying to reduce the use of cans..

    I sometimes take dried raw coconut and make a coconut milk. This works in some recipes. Do you think it would work in this case? (The ration is 2 parts water to 1 part dried coconut).

    Also, I have tried to use the homemade coconut milk to make whipped (coconut) cream and it didn’t work. Any suggestions there? I strained and chilled the coconut milk, but it was runny.


    • McKel Hill

      Yes, that would work! I also like almond milk or you can use any non-dairy milk you enjoy here Deborah 🙂

  • elizabeth

    made my first cup! love it, nice to finally find a website that caters to my location!
