I pretty much said goodbye to coffee and howdy to turmeric lattes this winter. These golden cups of warmth are packed with flavour and antioxidants! I grew up with turmeric as a staple in our home used to nourish food, treat digestive issues and applied on the skin for a flawless glow.
Apart from this being a moreish tasting drink that both my toddler and I have come to love during this cold season, it also packs a substantial amount of health benefits.
- Digestion boosting powerhouse
- Aids metabolism
- Lowers cholesterol
- Natural liver detoxifier
- Relieves headaches
- Aid nausea
- Reduce inflammation
- Reduces blood sugar levels
- Builds immune system
- Eases mentstrual cycles
I have opted to used a plant based milk as we are on a journey to a more plant based diet (a post for a another day!). You can use water, but you won’t get the creamy texture and it will turn out more like a tea than latte…both versions are tasty.This drink can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to 2 days.Warm and enjoy whenever desired!
2 cups unsweetened almond milk
1cm piece grated fresh turmeric
2cm freshly grated ginger
1 cinnamon quill
1 teaspoon ground cardamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon rind
Pinch freshly cracked black pepper (aids the digestion of turmeric)
Place all ingredients in a saucepan and gently simmer on low heat for 10 minutes.
Strain through a small sieve and enjoy!
