Golden Turmeric Latte
Everyone in our house has been under the weather lately. Cough, chills, sore throats. No fun at all! My mom suggested to mix up some turmeric and milk. I asked, “You mean make golden lattes?” She laughed, and said “Whatever you young people call it!” If I’m doing this just for myself I put all of the ingredients in a blender (Magic Bullet, Ninja, etc.) microwave for 1-2 minutes, and blend to get that nice froth. Otherwise you can warm everything on the stove top and whisk for a similar effect.
- 2 cups milk (unsweetened dairy or non-dairy)
- 1/2 tsp turmeric, ground or freshly grated
- 1/4 tsp grated ginger
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp honey or other natural sweetener
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- Pinch of ground black pepper
I also like to throw in some cardamom seeds...delicious!
Adding ground black pepper helps turmeric stay in your body longer.
In a time crunch you can mix together turmeric, cinnamon, pepper with a tiny bit of lemon and warm water for “turmeric shots” This is how my coworkers and I like to start our weekday mornings!
