Turmeric Latte

Turmeric Latte

Known as ‘golden milk’ in India this delicious coffee/tea alternative is delicious, warming and uplifting. Said to be anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and a digestive aid, turmeric contains curcumin, an active ingredient said to halt an enzyme that may be responsible for turning environmental toxins into carcinogens in the body. Makes two servings. 


2  cups of non dairy milk (hemp works really well)

2 teaspoons of coconut oil

2 teaspoons of turmeric powder 

1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon of ground ginger 

1 teaspoon of maple syrup (optional) 

A pinch of black pepper (this is essential to activate benefits of turmeric)


1: Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan on a gentle heat and stir with a whisk. 

2: Before the milk reaches boiling point take it off the heat.

3: Place half the milk in a cafetiere and pump the plunger until the milk is frothy. If you don't have one skip this step - it will still be delicious!

4: Pour the other half of the milk into two cups and then pour over the frothy milk.
