Golden Milk Latte Recipe – delicious immune-boosting drink with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and your choice of milk.
My late obsession in getting more turmeric into my diet and enjoying the benefits of this amazing spice. Along with ginger, which is already on my favorites list. I add them to savory dishes ( simply jazz up plain rice by adding 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric ) and now in this latte.
This Golden Milk Latte ( or Turmeric Tea ) is creamy and delicious! I don’t use any sweetener for it but you can use zero calorie stevia or maple syrup. Pure vanilla extract gives it enough sweet flavor for me ( even tough it is not a sweetener ). I love to enjoy a mug of this warm drink on almost every afternoon.
HOW TO MAKE GOLDEN MILK LATTE AKA TURMERIC TEA
In a small saucepan, combine milk ( any you like; use almond milk to make it vegan ), spices and coconut oil and heat up. Do not boil. Remove from heat and pour into a mug or two. Add freshly brewed coffee, if you like. To sweeten, add stevia or maple syrup. Enjoy warm.
Turmeric contains curcumin, a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties. It helps prevent and treat disease. It helps boost your immune system so if you are feeling like you might be coming down with a cold or flu, make a cup of this warm and delicious Golden Milk Latte to help your body.
After learning about the benefits of turmeric a while ago, I have been trying to find ways to add it to our diet. I don’t make curry enough so I needed more ideas. I absolutely love to add 1/2 teaspoon of ground turmeric to plain white rice. It’s so good! Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz around the Golden Milk Latte and decided I had to try it. Now, I am completely sold and love this golden drink! It really is like pure gold!
Just one thing, don’t let the addition of black pepper scare you off. You only need a tiny bit. Black pepper contains piperine that enhances absorption of curcumin significantly. Google it for more info on this subject. Some studies even show that curcumin helps fight cancer, brain disease and depression.
