VANILLA TURMERIC GOLDEN MILK LATTE

PREP: 3 MINUTES COOK: 12 MINUTES TOTAL: 15 MINUTES



Health benefits of turmeric aside, a mug of this comforting turmeric tea is also just the perfect way to cozy up at the end of a long day. I think it’s reminiscent of a chai latte – warming and a bit spicy. Take this recipe and customize however you’d like! The options are pretty much endless.



INGREDIENTS:

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon honey, to taste (can sub pure maple syrup for vegan version)

1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (can sub 1-2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger, to taste)

1 5-inch cinnamon stick (can sub 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon)

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon coconut oil (optional)*

OPTIONAL ADDITIONS

Add with the other spices, at the beginning of the process.

Pinch freshly ground black pepper (optional)*

1/2 vanilla bean, seeds scraped and entire bean added

2-3 cardamom pods, crushed

1 star anise

Pinch ground cayenne pepper

Pinch freshly ground nutmeg

Black peppercorns


DIRECTIONS:

  1. Set a small saucepan over low heat. Add the almond milk, 1 teaspoon honey, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon stick, and black pepper and stir with a whisk until combined.

  2. Bring to steaming, just below a simmer. Do not let it come to a boil. Keep just below a simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat. Remove the cinnamon stick. If you added other spices that need to be strained out, strain using a fine mesh strainer then return to the pan. Stir in the vanilla and coconut oil (if using). Taste and add additional honey if desired (I like about 2 teaspoons).

  4. Use a frother to froth the tea, if desired. Pour into a mug and spoon the froth over the top. Serve.





* Coconut oil and ground black pepper have both been found to help increase the absorption of curcumin, the beneficial anti-inflammatory compound found in turmeric. I usually include both for this reason.

VEGAN OPTION:

Use pure maple syrup instead of honey to sweeten.
