This is my favorite drink when the temperatures start to get cooler. I live in Seattle and October gets prettyyyy chilly. I like it though…for now. This Turmeric Latte (no coffee or caffeine) is like a hug in a mug. I love it because its a little bit sweet, a tiny bit spicy, creamy, and filled with lots of healing ingredients. My favorite ingredients in this drink are He Shou Wu and Ashwagandha. They are both adaptogenic herbs that help your body return to homeostasis or balance. He Shou Wu is especially good for your hair, nails, skin, and nervous system. It’s considered an herb for beauty and longevity. Ashwagandha is especially good for relieving stress (say no to adrenal burnout) and supporting the immune system. These healing benefits make them the perfect addition to the anti-inflammatory Turmeric Latte. You may wonder why this drink has black pepper added to it. That’s because the curcumin in Turmeric, which acts as an anti-inflammatory, is best absorbed by the body when taken with piperine which is found in black pepper.
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1 1/2 cups cashew or almond milk
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp honey
1 tsp coconut butter
Heat the cashew or almond milk up on the stove.
Add the milk and all other ingredients into a blender.
Blend until well combined and enjoy!
