Soothing and calming, this turmeric latte is made for lazy Sundays that naturally nourishes your body with amazing anti-inflammatory properties and excessive goodness. Fresh turmeric gives the latte a warm yellow colour and is an excellent antioxidant that boosts your immunity system and is known to have numerous healing properties. There are many recipes out there, but I decided upon an easy one that requires no blender and rather just a bit of gentle heating in a saucepan with lovely seasonal spices. I must say, I love the kick this latte has, each velvety sip warms the back of my throat sweetly. I will be enjoying this cup of comfort during the winter season, in bed of course… tucked in between a mountain of pillows with my woolen socks, a good coffee-table book and flowers from my love. Have a wonderful sunday darlings!
Grate some fresh ginger and turmeric into a small saucepan. Add some oat milk, ground cardamom, cinnamon, a pinch of sea salt. Heat the saucepan over medium heat until just simmering. Sweeten with a teaspoon of honey. Remove from heat and strain the latte into mugs. For a frothy effect in the end, I frothed a bit of skimmed milk in our espresso machine.
I have also read that this recipe is great with a splash of coconut cream or puree. Also instead of honey, many recipes use coconut sugar or juicy dates. However if you use dates, I would blitz everything in a blender until smooth and frothy.
