Spiced Turmeric Latte
Say goodbye to coffee, and hello to turmeric lattes! Warming and nourishing, not to mention packed with antioxidants.
Turmeric is the rock star ingredient, along with ginger and cinnamon, and it makes a comforting, nourishing hot drink. You can use milk instead of water for a creamier drink. I’ve added a heaped tablespoon of nut butter for extra creaminess – it also helps create a nice creamy froth on top of the latte (just like the creamy frothy part on top of a latte or cappuccino!).
fresh turmeric 3cm piece, peeled (or 3/4 teaspoon turmeric powder)
fresh ginger 2cm piece, peeled (or ¼ - ½ teaspoon ground ginger)
black pepper pinch of
honey 1 heaped teaspoon
almond, cashew nut or hazelnut butter 1 heaped tablespoon
water 1 ½ cups (or milk, for a creamier drink)
ground cinnamon ½ - ¾ teaspoon
vanilla essence or extract 1 teaspoon
salt good pinch
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy.
Warm up in a small pot and pour into mugs, or pour into mugs and warm up in the microwave. Sprinkle over more cinnamon to serve.
