Donut worry, be happy and golden! We’re making turmeric donuts topped with coconut cream frosting and trust me babes, you’ll want to try this at home.

Golden Milk Donuts

Golden milk also known as turmeric milk is an Indian drink that’s bright yellow, delicious and has many health benefits. I’m turning this liquid gold into donuts and adding a little taste of the tropics with some coconut cream. Coconut will always remind me of summertime, laying on the beaches of my home country the Philippines. When I was making this recipe I wanted something to balance the spice of the turmeric and though that coconut would pair well with it. To make a successful frosting for this Golden Milk Donut, you need to refrigerate your coconut cream overnight. I tried it with room temperature coconut cream and it just ended up being a runny mess. We’re also using date syrup for this recipe because it has a low glycemic index and it tastes super yummy. You can always substitute this with Lakanto maple syrup for a lower carb dessert. So treat yo self with these Golden Milk Donuts because you deserve it, babe!
