Turmeric Latte

Oh baby it’s cold outside.

Turmeric; a powerful anti-inflammatory spice.


So, it’s a Friday afternoon, and I’m in need of a pick-me-up 

 

 

Ingredients

 

  • 1 cup unsweetened nut milk or coconut milk (I used half and half of each)
  • 1 heaped tablespoon fresh turmeric root, grated (or use 2 teaspoons tumeric paste – see note*)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (or 1-inch cinnamon stick)
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root (or 1 tsp ground)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • Raw honey, Rice Malt Syrup or Stevia to taste

 

 

Method

 

  1. To make the turmeric paste, combine 2 parts tumeric powder with 1 part boiling water (I used 2 tablespoons turmeric powder and 1 tablespoon water, storing the extra in the fridge for about a week!)
  2. Gently warm the milk in a small saucepan, but please don’t boil!
  3. Add the tumeric, ginger and cinnamon
  4. Add the coconut oil, and allow to heat together until melted
  5. Use a whisk or fork to create a foam, stirring until somewhat frothy and heated through
  6. Stir in sweetner to taste

Enjoy!
