Turmeric Latte

Saturday, March 17, 2018

Recently I wrote about the healing benefits of Turmeric and what a powerhouse it was. So, following that, I wanted to give some recipe ideas that include this wonder spice. This is the first of a few and I know you’ll love it, it’s hard not to.


A creamy turmeric latte is warming and delicious in either the morning or evening and this time of year it’s great for warming up on chilly days. Its healing benefits make it even better; packed full of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Turmeric can be quite an acquired taste if you’re not used to it, so I would suggest starting off small and adding to the quantity. However, this recipe will give you a rich, creamy texture which is delicious and satisfying. I always use Coconut milk as I love it, but again, that is down to personal preference.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of nondairy milk, eg. Coconut, almond

     

     

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric

     

     

  • a small pinch of ground or fresh ginger

     

     

  • a small pinch of pepper

     

     

  • 1 cinnamon stick or ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon

     

     

  • 1 teaspoon of raw honey (or coconut syrup if vegan)

Instructions:

1. Add the almond milk to a small pot and heat on low temperature.

2. Add the turmeric, cinnamon, and pepper, then stir frequently for about 3 minutes until the milk is warm, but not boiling.

3. Remove from heat and you can strain the milk if you so wish. There could be some pepper granules in there.

4. You can add the raw honey or coconut syrup at the start if you know how you like it. However, I tend to do this at the end to taste.

So there you have it, really simple to make and full of inflammation busting goodness. I would love to hear what you think once you’ve made it for yourself.

Enjoy
