The turmeric latte is a game changer. I had been wanting to banish soy milk from my diet for a long time, and it was made possible the instant I tasted this drink!
Not only is it delicious, but turmeric is an anti-inflammatory gem. It may reduce tumors and decrease the severity of Alzheimer’s disease, stimulates digestion, may lower LDL cholesterol, and fight colds and flu among other things.
Healing Turmeric Latte
- 1 1/2 cups almond milk (or coconut milk, or coconut/almond milk…you get the idea)
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- pinch cloves
- pinch black pepper
- pinch salt
- 1 tbsp honey (if your milk is already sweetened you may want to start with less honey)
Place all ingredients into a saucepan and heat until desired temperature is reached. Whisk occasionally to ensure it is mixed well. Enjoy.
The reason black pepper is added to recipes with turmeric is because pepper contains piperine, thought to increase the effects of curcumin in turmeric by 1,000 times. This maximizes the health benefits of the latte and you can’t even taste the pepper!
