Turmeric ‘Golden’ Latte (GF, Vegan)

I’ve been enjoying the taste of turmeric lattes for years now, and in full transparency, I definitely notice a HUGE difference in my gut and skin health when I am incorporating this powerful spice regularly.

Turmeric- specifically it’s active compound Curcumin- is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and has loads of antioxidant properties. In fact, it has been used for centuries in holistic medicine to help lower inflammation in the body- and it is one of the top 6 supplements I recommend to most of my clients.

Turmeric has been proven to help lower heart disease and risk for cancer, lower cholesterol, reduce risk of Alzheimer’s, improve skin conditions, reduce joint pain, improve digestion, lower free radicals, improve memory and even assist those battling depression.

I love to utilize it in my cooking, use the roots in my tea when I steep it, and of course, even use it as a latte that I drink quite regularly. I definitely recommend giving this recipe a go and starting to integrate it into your daily routine!

Turmeric Golden latte

PREP TIME
5 Minutes

COOKING TIME
4 Minutes

YIELDS
1 Serving

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup almond or other non-dairy milk
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch black pepper
  • Maple Syrup to taste

 

DIRECTIONS

STEP 1: In a small pot, whisk together all ingredients well. Alternatively, you can blend them together in a blender.

STEP 3: Top with a pinch of cinnamon if desired. Enjoy!
 
 
 

NOTES

  • If you’d like to make this sugar-free, opt for Stevia or Monk Fruit as your sweetener choice. 
  • The black pepper is necessary for your body to effectively absorb the beneficial properties of curcumin (as pepper increases the bioavailability). You don’t need much- a really small pinch will work wonders!
  • This recipe will work fine with milk should you tolerate dairy fine and wish to use it instead.
