    Why Golden Milk by Golden Soul?

    Golden Milk by Golden Soul is a simple to prepare, nourishing drink with a subtle hint of natural spices and a beautiful, striking, golden colour.

    Combined with premium coconut milk, it has a smooth texture and an extraordinary taste.

    What is in it?

    Turmeric, Coconut Milk, Cinnamon, Honey & Black Pepper in just the right quantities.

    Why is Golden Milk by Golden Soul different?

    • It’s ready to drink, just add hot water
    • 100% natural, no additives or preservatives
    • No mess, no fuss – most other products require you to mix a paste, then add coconut milk and additional sweetener
    • Premium coconut milk is part of our blend
    • Made in Australia and proudly Australian owned
    • Health alternative to coffee and caffeinated teas

    How many drinks can I make per bag?

    Golden Milk by Golden Soul is unique and very different to other Turmeric Latte’s on the market.

    It is the world’s first, truly instant Turmeric latte. It has high quality coconut milk included in the packet.

    We actually make a hot, ready to drink Turmeric latte during the production process, then remove the water content to dry what's left into a powder, which makes it light weight for shipping, easy to store, as well as giving it a long shelf life without refrigeration, whilst of course, retaining the original nutrients.

    It’s rather a long winded way of saying that you can’t compare the weight of our packet to others on the market. In total, there are twelve serves per packet.

    How to Make

    How do I make it?

    Pour 1 tablespoon, or about 8 grams into your favourite mug, cup or glass. Simply add 250ml of hot water. Stir and enjoy, or add your choice of sweetener.

    If you see any light brown floating bits on the surface, it’s because our product is 100% natural. Just stir it a little more to blend it in. These bits are simply the coconut oil floating to the surface which needs to be stirred in to dissolve a little more.

    Do I need to make a paste first?

    Golden Milk by Golden Soul is the world’s first and only, simple, no mess, no fuss Turmeric Latte.

    Just add hot water. Stir and enjoy. You are welcome to add additional sweetener to suit your preferred taste.

    Unlike almost every other Turmeric Latte on the market, there is no need to make a paste and no need to add coconut milk or anything else except hot water.

    Do I need to add anything else?

    Golden Milk by Golden Soul is ready to drink, just add hot water. It even has a dash of honey to make it taste just perfect, straight out of the packet.

    If you would like to add additional sweetener to suit your preferred taste, then feel free.

    Do I need to add milk?

    Golden Milk by Golden Soul has been made using premium quality, 100% natural coconut milk.

    Just add hot water and it’s ready to drink.

    Do I need to add sugar?

    We've already add a dash of honey to Golden Milk by Golden Soul to make the taste perfect. You are welcome to add your choice of sweetener too.

    Can I drink it cold?

    Yes, but you’ll need a little hot water if you want to dissolve the powder easily. The coconut oil, a natural part of coconut milk, will solidify as it cools, so you may want to give it a good shake or put it in a blender with some crushed ice too.

    Can I use it in other things?

    Yes, we have a recipe page with some really delicious savoury and sweet treats.

    There are lots of amazing things you can make with Golden Milk by Golden Soul.

    You are only limited by your imagination.

    Health

    Can I drink too much Golden Milk by Golden Soul?

    You can drink as much Golden Milk by Golden Soul as you like. Most people prefer a couple of cups a day though. If you’re planning to drink a lot more, we’d recommend you check with your preferred medical practitioner.

    Our product is 100% natural, but we’re not doctors, so if you have any concerns, we recommend you discuss them with your preferred medical practitioner.

    How much do I need to drink to get the health benefits?

    That’s a really interesting question. The science behind the health benefits of turmeric varies depending upon who published it. There’s 3,000+ articles and as you can imagine, lots of different views on this. In our view, something is better than nothing and enjoying is pretty important too. Have a couple a day and we’re sure you’ll feel there’s a reason to keep drinking more.

    Golden Milk by Golden Soul is lovingly prepared in Australia. So we’re Australian made and Australian owned.

    We’d love to use 100% Australian ingredients too. This is not always possible as Australia is not a large producer of turmeric or coconut milk, so we have to import some elements.

    Why do you add black pepper?

    Without getting into the really technical science, black pepper assist the body to absorb the curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric. Curcumin is the thing that makes turmeric so special.

    Does it taste like curry?

    No, but some people naturally associate turmeric with curry as it the base ingredient for many curries. Golden Milk by Golden Soul is carefully blended to taste amazing. We love it and we’re sure you will too.

    What if I’m on medication?
