I know it is summer, but I can't get enough of caffeine-free turmeric lattes at the moment. It may be due to the Arctic tundra A/C conditions in Hong Kong or the fact that the rain is relentless or that the beverage provides just the right amount of energy without a terrible crash. Yesterday I had a cup of turmeric latte before a yin yoga class and came out feeling so relaxed.
1 cup milk of your choice (I used homemade almond milk)
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 cinnamon stick or 1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 inch fresh ginger
sweeten to taste (I used a bit of stevia)
There are several ways you can make this. If you don't have a blender, combine all ingredients except for sweetener, warm on stove for a few minutes, and whisk until foamy. Strain, pour into a mug, and add sweetener.
I used a blender, so I combined all the ingredients except for the stevia, blended them, then warmed up on the stove. Then I strained into a mug and added the stevia.
