Turmeric lattes are a wonderful way to consume turmeric, one of the healthiest, most accessible superfoods around. Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years to combat inflammation, which is at the root of so many chronic diseases (including, but not limited to, things like celiac, autoimmune diseases, allergies, even cancer).
1 cup milk of choice (I especially love almond and coconut)
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch black pepper
Pinch sea salt
1 heaping teaspoon coconut oil
Optional: 1 teaspoon liquid sweetener of choice (honey, maple syrup, coconut syrup)
In a small saucepan, heat milk, turmeric, vanilla, pepper, salt and sweetener, if using, until very warm but not yet boiling. Transfer to blender and blend with coconut oil until frothy. Pour into a mug and drink immediately. Serves 1.
Want to make this a caffeinated latte? Swap the 1 cup of milk for 3/4 cup of brewed coffee and 1/4 cup of milk of choice, then proceed with recipe as directed!
