Hello everyone! I am sure you all heard of Matcha or Turmeric Lattes before. I’ve been making these, especially the Turmeric Latte more frequently this winter, mostly because I really enjoy them but also because of all the health benefits they provide. Preventing getting sick is a big part and I think I was pretty lucky so far! Except an earache and the occasional sniffles I was fine. My kids and husband have been having colds for the last few weeks and it finely got me as well!
Turmeric, Cinnamon and Ginger have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Anti-microbial, immunity-boosting, cancer preventing. These are just some of the benefits of these beautiful spices.
Pepper contains piperine and is believed to enhance the absorption of Turmeric. And because Turmeric is fat-soluble I added some coconut oil to the latte.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the beautiful yellow color!
Spiced Turmeric Latte
2 cups coconut, almond, cashew or any other milk
1 tsp coconut oil
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch ground or finely grated fresh ginger
pinch black pepper
-Add milk, coconut oil and honey to a small pot and bring to a quick boil.
-Reduce heat to low and while whisking add all the spices. Whisk until frothy.
Tip: I used honey to soothe my sore throat, it is optional of course. If making it vegan use maple syrup or coconut sugar instead. Sweeten to your taste.
