Turmeric Ginger Latte

This is a caffeine free latte, perfect for warming you up on chilly, rainy fall days. Both ginger and turmeric have anti-inflammatory properties, which means this soothing and delicious latte is also good for you, and can be helpful for this time of year when everyone seems to be getting sick!

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Milk of your choice (I use almond milk)
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder or 1 inch fresh turmeric root
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger or 2 inches fresh ginger root
  • pinch of ground black pepper
  • OPTIONAL
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil or coconut butter
  • 1 tsp unpasteurized honey

Directions:

  1. Add turmeric, cinnamon, ginger and pepper to blender along with milk and blend.
  2. Heat in pot until simmering.
  3. Pour into your mug. You may wish to strain the mixture into your mug with a wire mesh strainer but you don’t have to if you don’t mind having some grit at  the bottom of your cup.
  4. Add honey, coconut oil or coconut butter to your desired amount.
