Turmeric Tea Latte


img_2081

Turmeric is a medicinal herb that is best known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties. To ensure that our bodies are able to absorb turmeric always combine it with black pepper and ginger.

1/4 Tsp ground turmeric

Pinch ground or fresh ginger

Pinch ground black pepper

1 Cardamom Pod

Spoonful of Honey

Splash of milk (or milk-alternative)

Hot Water

  1. Heat water in a tea kettle until boiling
  2. Pour two inches or so of milk (I use cashew milk) into your favorite mug. If you have a microwave, heat it for about 30 seconds.
  3. In a blender* combine the turmeric, ginger, black pepper, and honey. Crack open your cardamom pod and toss the little seeds in the blender, discard the green shell.
  4. Once the water is boiling pour the water into your mug with your warm milk until it’s about full. Then pour the contents of the mug into the blender.
  5. Blend on med/high for about a minute.
  6. Pour into your mug and sip slowly.

*Vitamix is awesome, but it’s ok to use any blender that can tolerate hot liquid – be careful if you’re not sure!

**Turmeric stains everything 🙂 Your blender will be permanently stained a little yellow. If your blender is in pristine condition, you’re probably not using it enough 🙂

***You can add so many other things to this recipe to make it more exciting for you. I sometimes add raw cacao powder, cinnamon or a little bit of Bone Broth.
