Have you heard of turmeric lattes? They’re the newest craze sweeping the nation, and they’re all about giving a healthy golden glow to the start of the day. The following recipe is the most delicious source of creamy, golden goodness anywhere on the net. We do recommend using a high quality almond mylk to make your latte the most healthful experience, but it’s still really, really good with any milk or mylk of your preference/needs.
This recipe serves 4 reasonable large mugs of homemade turmeric latte.
2 tablespoons of turmeric powder
1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder
1/2 teaspoon of cardamom powder
1/4 teaspoon vanilla or 1/4 of a scraped vanilla bean pod (optional but delicious)
small pinch of salt
small pinch of black pepper
2 teaspoons coconut sugar or raw honey (optional but delicious)
1L Almond mylk
Place all the ingredients in a medium saucepan and slowly bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Once the liquid is hot turn the heat off and allow to steep for five minutes. Pour or ladle into mugs/cups (at this stage, if you have a milk frother you can froth for your life if you like) and sprinkle with extra cinnamon powder. It’s usually a good idea to serve these with a teaspoon or other stirring utensil as over time the spices tend to form a sediment. If there are any leftovers it will keep well in the fridge for two or three days.
It can be useful to premix the spices and salt mixture, then just add your vanilla, mylk and sugar to be ready to go! If you’re lacking the motivation to mix up a turmeric latte yourself, don’t let that stop you from enjoying the turmericky goodness they have to offer. You can buy premixed lattes, which take hardly any time at all. Try this one from Therapeia Australia.
