Creamy Golden Milk Smoothie

5 minutes



1 cup banana* (ripe, sliced, and frozen)
1 cup light coconut milk or almond milk (use full-fat coconut for creamier smoothie)
1/2 tsp ground turmeric powder
1 Tbsp fresh ginger (plus more to taste)
1 Dash ground cinnamon
1 Dash black pepper
1 Dash ground nutmeg
1 Dash ground clove and cardamom (optional // for more warmth + spice)
1/4 cup fresh carrot juice* (optional // for colour, added sweetness + balances banana flavour // or sub 1 small carrot!)


  • Step 1

    Add banana, coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, black pepper, and nutmeg to a high-speed blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth. If including, add cardamom, clove, and fresh carrot juice at this time (optional).

  • Step 2

    If too thick, thin with more coconut milk or water. If too thin, thicken with ice (or more frozen banana, though it will add more sweetness).

  • Step 3

    yellow hue.

  • Step 4

    Divide between serving and enjoy immediately. Keep leftovers in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Freeze leftovers by pouring into an ice cube tray and use for future smoothies (either this smoothie or others you'd like to infuse with a golden milk flavour).


  • All of the delicious taste and health perks of golden milk in smoothie form! Just 7 ingredients, 1 blender, and 5 minutes required. Creamy, naturally sweet, subtly spiced, and packed with turmeric!
