Let’s talk about one of my recent obsessions, a turmeric latte. First off, I’m not a coffee person, I’m just not into it. In the mornings I’m usually drinking water or green tea because that’s more my taste. Recently, I’ve been having my turmeric latte in the mornings and I love it. It’s so good and it’s the best way to start your day. Plus, it’s super easy to make so, it’s perfect for a quick pick me up.
I have talked about the benefits of turmeric before and why I add it to everything. If you want to read that post, I will link it here. It has so many different benefits including fighting inflammation. I love anything that helps fight any type of inflammation because it’s so important!! Another key thing is to make sure your turmeric has curcumin in it that way you make sure you are getting all the benefits. If you don’t find any turmeric with a great amount of curcumin in it, just add some fresh black pepper. Black pepper helps your body absorb turmeric better allowing you to get the most from it. Like I said before I get way more into details on the benefits of turmeric on a previous post so if you want to check that out you can click here.
Making a turmeric latte is so easy, quick, and efficient. I like to use a dairy-free option and I have been obsessed with this specific kind that you can find anywhere now! It’s the Califia Farms Toasted Coconut Almond Milk Blend. This is my current favorite dairy-free option. Its creamy, the coconut flavor is AMAZING, and it’s amazing to make a yummy foamy latte. Any type of milk works with this latte, but I would so recommend this one out!! Before I add the turmeric, I’ll warm up the milk.
If I’m making a large latte, the most I will use is a teaspoon of turmeric. If I’m using a smaller coffee mug I will use about half a teaspoon. You don’t want to go overboard, because there will be some that will accumulate on the bottom from not mixing. If you’re new to this start with a small amount and add as you go.
To sweeten it up, I like to use monk fruit or manuka honey. I won’t use too much because I don’t like it to overly sweet, but I’ll use enough to satisfy my sweet tooth. If you aren’t familiar with monk fruit it’s like stevia but healthier. Monk fruit doesn’t mess with your hormones or a digestive system like stevia does. I will be writing another post about the specifics on monk fruit and why you should switch to it! If you haven’t tried it yet, you should. I love the Golden Lakanto Monk Fruit Sweetener from Amazon.
Then, I will sometimes add a bit of cinnamon in it to add an extra touch! Right after, I will use my frother and I am telling you its the best thing ever to have. Having a frother is great to make sure everything comes out to the best possible consistency. I love to use this frother because you end up with a great consistency with this amazing foaminess ( is that even a word? I don’t know but, you know what I’m trying to say). If you don’t have one YOU NEED ONE. It’s great for any drink that you want to blend up to have this amazing creamy texture with some foam on top. I fond this super cute pink and silver hand help frother from the world market that is so cute!! It comes with two for $17.99 which is such a good price.

That’s is it, you guys! It is so simple and tastes amazing! Try it out with some freshly baked bread dipped in. omg so good, TRUST ME you need to try this out. If you do let me know and let me know if you added your little twist! I’m always up to try something new.
All the love,
