Coffee, move aside. There’s a new sheriff in hot beverage-town.
If you’re looking for a delicious, healthy giving drink that’s naturally caffeine free and offers some amazing brain and body boosting benefits; look no further. Turmeric latte is for you!
Turmeric is fast being perceived as THE drink to be seen sipping (LOL) in yoga centers and healthy restaurants in London and LA and now it’s hitting the big time.
I KEEP reading about how amazing turmeric is (for some of the incredible benefits check out this post by Dr Axe)
Turmeric has long been used in indian cuisine and is the bright yellow spice that gives many curries their gorgeous, orangey, zingy appearance.
One of it’s primary benefits is that it’s anti-inflammitory; this is only a good thing not only when it comes to your general health, but also to anxiety. An inflamed brain is an anxious and depressed one, so including plenty of anti-inflammitory foods and drinks can only help.
Not only that, but the coconut oil and cinnamon help to reduce inflammation and balance blood sugar levels.
It’s a winner!
- Heat one cup of milk in a pan. It could be cows, goat, soya or almond (or your choice of mylk).
- Once heated, stir in half a teaspoon of turmeric powder, half a teaspoon or cinnamon, a teaspoon or coconut oil and a sprinkle of black pepper (this helps your body to absorb more of the good compounds in the turmeric).
- Then add a little sweetener to taste. I personally love NuNaturals Liquid Stevia as I tend to avoid sugar. You could add some honey, agarve, brown rice syrup or other sweetener. Try and avoid sugar if you can, because sugar causes inflammation.
- If you have a milk frother, I highly recommend frothing the milk to make it even more delicious.
Warning: careful you don’t spill the turmeric powder – it seriously stains!
