For a not-so-basic latte, try your hand at making a Turmeric Latte. Start with unsweetened coconut milk (the kind in a carton—not a can), lightly warmed, and then blend in Vega Sport® Protein, turmeric, ginger and cinnamon. Add black pepper–the perfect pair to bright orange turmeric.



  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 serving Vanilla Vega Sport® Performance Protein
  • 1 inch fresh turmeric (1 Tbsp ground turmeric)
  • 1 inch fresh ginger (1 Tbsp ground ginger)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla (extract or powder)
  • Optional: 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Optional: 1 Tbsp sweetener of choice


  1. Gently warm coconut milk in saucepan. Remove from heat before boiling.

  2. In a high-speed blender, place all other ingredients.

  3. Pour warm coconut milk into blender, sealing lid tightly and covering with a dishcloth (in case it splatters).

  4. Blend for 2 minutes.

  5. Serve while still hot.
