Spiced Turmeric Latte - An Apple a Day

 

Ever ordered a chai latte (made from tea leaves) and walked away thinking it lacked body and flavour? I did, repeatedly; and even contemplated paying $4 for a green tea, just to overcome the problem. All this changed recently when a girlfriend introduced me to a Spiced Turmeric Latte and I’ve never looked back. 

The problem? They can be expensive. So I set out to create my own. The result? My new favourite anti-inflammatory, nutrient rich spiced latte that is most definitely NOT anaemic on the flavour front 🙂 
 

HEALTH BENEFITS 

  • Cinnamon is an antioxidant and has been studied for it’s anti-inflammatory, anti diabetic, antimicrobial, anticancer, lipid-lowering properties. 
  • Turmeric is also a powerful anti-inflammatory herb. PLUS, the incidence of cancer is significantly lower in regions where turmeric is heavily consumed! You can read all about how I easy it is to incorporate Turmeric into your diet here.
  • Ginger also a powerful anti-inflammatory agent, as well as anti-oxidant. 
  • Nutmeg is full of manganese, copper, and magnesium, as well as antioxidants.
  • Coconut Oil is a great anti-fungal and will also help balance our blood sugars well into the day. You can read all about the additional health benefits of coconut oil here.

Spiced Turmeric Latte 

Serves: 1          Prep Time: Nil          Cook Time: 5 mins 


Ingredients: 

  • 250ml coconut milk (I use Pure Harvest CocoQuench)
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg powder 
  • Pinch of chilli powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp. coconut oil 

Method:

  1. Warm milk in a saucepan before adding remaining ingredients. Stir until combined. Reduce heat to simmer for a few minutes before straining and serving. 
  2. If you have a Thermomix, add all ingredients to the jug, 2 minutes, speed 2, 80C. Before serving, I love to increase the speed to add a little “froth” to the mix. Strain and serve.
