Simple Turmeric Ginger Latte
Adapted from Goop – Ginger Turmeric Latte
Ingredients for Simple Turmeric and Ginger Latte
- 1 cup + 2 tbsp of milk or milk alternative of your choice (almond, organic soy, cashew milk)
- 1 tsp fresh ginger, peeled and minced
- 1 tsp fresh turmeric, peeled and minced
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp maple syrup or honey
- dash of sea salt
Method For Simple Turmeric and Ginger Latte
- Heat the milk or milk alternative in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring it just before the boiling point. You shouldn’t see bubbles forming, but instead some small movement in the liquid. Remove from heat.
- Add the ginger, turmeric, coconut oil, honey or maple syrup and the salt into a small blender (I use a Nutri Bullet but a Magic Bullet would work just fine). Add 2 tbsp of milk to help the mixture blend better. Blend the mixture until the ginger and turmeric make a nice liquid puree.
- Next add the warmed milk to the blender. Blend for 5 seconds or less, no longer because the warmed liquid will create a negative pressure and the lid of the blender will be difficult to remove.
- When you pour the drink, a nice foam should form on the top layer. Taste and adjust for sweetness.
Make it vegan: Use milk alternatives such as almond milk, organic soy milk or cashew milk. Use honey.
Add more protein: Soy milk is higher in protein than other milk alternatives.
Boost the nutrients: Try adding double the amount of fresh ginger and turmeric for a stronger and more nutrient-dense drink.
