One of the treats I was able to enjoy while at the Yoga Garden Party this summer was the Turmeric Lattes by SugaVida. Both the Cardamom and Ginger varieties are utterly delicious but possibly a little too rich for my palette!
Google, here I come!
Once home I was determined to make my own turmeric lattes but with slightly lighter consistency than the SugaVida version. I found plenty of recipes after a simple Google search.
The first one I decided to try involved warming 1 cup of nut milk on the stove. It needed to be gently warmed, not boiling, before adding the ingredients. Next step was to whisk like mad, by hand with a balloon whisk, until frothy. The result was okay but too much effort for not enough froth and still a bit too rich for me.
That prompted me to try my own version. My version is super frothy with help of a NurtiBullet, and light as I use half the amount of nut milk and coconut oil as recommended in most other recipes.
The Keshinomi Turmeric Latte
Makes one cup of turmeric latte, it's a win / win kinda recipe: super fast and super frothy :D
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1 tsp honey/maple syrup / agave syrup
- Seeds from 1 cardamom pod
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1/2 cup nut/soy milk (I like almond milk but purist would recommend coconut milk)
- 1/2 cup freshly boiled water
- NutriBullet or immersion / hand blender plus heat proof jug (that's it!)
Add all ingredients to the NutriBullet small cup (or heat safe jug if using a hand blender), blend until well combined and frothy, pour into your favourite mug and enjoy!
Super fast and frothy
As I said, this recipe is light as I use a combination of 1 part hot water to 1 part nut milk. I also use just 1 teaspoon of coconut oil instead of the widely stated 2. My method is also super quick (and frothy) as I use freshly boiled water and blitz everything in one go.
Move over coffee and make way for 'Golden Milk'
My morning coffee has been given the elbow in favour of either a Maca Cacao latte (recipe coming soon) or a turmeric latte. I love how my version is fast, frothy and light on the palette. 'Golden Milk' is a term used by those in know! Want to look like a pro-health nut? Then drop a 'My day starts after I've had my golden milk' into a convo to earn pro-brownie points ;)
Turmeric is anti-inflammatory which means it can help to reduce redness and skin irritation, whilst its anti-bacterial properties make it great for reducing skin blemishes. It's also brilliant brain food thanks to a compound called curcumin, which can help to keep your brain healthy while also repairing brain stem cells.
