Super Anti-inflammatory Turmeric Latte
Turmeric Latte-Food is medicine
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is an extremely potent and well researched anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. The bioavailability (amount that is absorbed and utilized by the body) of the active component, curcumin is dramatically improved with the addition of black pepper . The best time to have this is in the evenings to help the body heal overnight.
You can also add organic turmeric to smoothies, porridge and all types of meals. Always make sure you add a pinch of black pepper and a little coconut oil to aid absorption.
To make a Turmeric latte
• 1 cup homemade almond milk or plant-based milk ( not soya) ( or non-sweetened shop bought)
• 1 heaped tablespoon organic turmeric root, grated (or use 1 teaspoon organic turmeric powder)
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root (or 1/2 teaspoon ground)
• 2 teaspoons coconut oil
• Raw honey or coconut nectar or other sweetener of choice to taste (optional, I have it without)
• Pinch of black pepper
METHOD: Gently warm the almond or coconut milk in a small saucepan. Do not boil. Add turmeric, ginger and cinnamon. Next, combine the coconut oil with the mixture and gently heat together until melted. Use a wire whisk or immersion blender to create foam. Continue to stir until frothy and heated through. Stir in honey or sweetener of choice to taste. Sprinkle with cinnamon if desired. Sip savour & enjoy.
ALTERNATIVE METHOD: To create an extra frothy latte, pour the contents into a high-speed blender in place of a wire whisk or immersion blender.
