On G’s recent travels to Savanah, GA she discovered the best turmeric latte at a local café and ever since we have been trying to recreate this magic back at home. It took some trial and error with combining elements of several different recipes, but we think we finally got it right. This is our At Home Turmeric Latte Recipe.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
Non-Diary Unsweetened Milk
This magical golden spice is showing up everywhere lately from skincare, toothpaste to the kitchen. The reason for this is because of all of the benefits it packs. Turmeric boosts your immune system through its amazing anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties.
It also helps to increase your white blood cell count, detoxify your body and promote a healthy metabolism. YES, PLEASE. Turmeric is even credited to help with menstrual cramps and arthritis management.
We added a little bit of Coconut Oil to sneak in a healthy fat, we picked up this trick from a Paleo recipe.
One of the reasons we love turmeric so much is for its anti-inflammatory properties and digestive boost. By heating the milk you extract the curcumin, which is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It is an anti-inflammatory powerhouse.
This is an easy recipe, just be sure you keep whisking the ingredients so that it can properly froth. You also want to have a towel handy because just a little of this golden spice can leave quite a stain if you aren’t careful.
How are you adding turmeric to your life?

Was chunky and gross textured but tastes great when you add flour, and chuck it in the microwave to make a nice cup cake. (Yea we didn’t have any powdered so we used the chunks XD)
Not using powder is why it turned out that way 🙂
