Turmeric Vanilla Latté

Author: Molly Patrick of Clean Food Dirty Girl


  • 3 dates if using huge jumbo dates, only use 2, pits removed and simmered in water for 5 minutes
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened organic soy milk or any other unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract liquid
  • tiny pinch of salt
  • Cinnamon powder to dust the top


  • Take the dates out of the water and place them in your blender along with the soy milk, turmeric powder, vanilla and salt (do not add the water that you simmered the dates in - just discard that).
  • Blend until the dates are totally blended, about 2 minutes depending on your blender.
  • If you want a cold drink, pour into a glass and drink just like that. Add some ice if you want it extra cold.

If you want it hot:

  • Pour into a small pot and heat, whisking as it heats.
  • Heat until it’s a nice temperature to drink - not too hot.
  • Dust the top with a little cinnamon powder and enjoy.
  • You can also add some cinnamon powder, cacao powder and / or nutmeg to the blender, along with the rest of the ingredients for an extra yummy kick.


This drink is really yummy hot or cold.
