Golden milk lattes are so pretty and super delicious. They're popping up everywhere recently and if you haven't been so adventurous to try - I highly encourage.
Coffee addicts beware - golden lattes are caffeine free, but they're a pleasant break from the acidic Americano and lend richer flavors and textures than a cup of tea.
I may have fallen in love.
Food fads usually make me cringe - but for such a popular drink they score far higher for health than any frap-a-latte-chino. Turmeric makes it pretty and yellow and is basically the super-man of the herb world. Its main constituent, curcurmin, is a powerful anti-inflammatory antioxidant and is one of those super powerful spices that helps:
- Reduce arthritic pain
- Improve digestion and digestive related disorders (like IBS, IBD, dyspepsia, ulcers)
- Reduce cholesterol levels
- Reduce inflammation and fight heart disease
- Decrease risk of cognitive and degenerative related diseases like Parkinson's disease and Alzheimers
Here's how to make it ...
- 2 c almond milk
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp raw honey
- Pinch of sea salt
Heat the almond milk on the stove top - bring to a simmer (not a boil). Combine the hot almond milk, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and honey to your blender for 30-60 seconds until frothy.
Optional: add the spices directly to the pan with milk and use a milk frother to combine.
. . . your blender might turn yellow. Sorry / not sorry.
