Golden Latte – an Anti-Inflammatory Drink
There are so many benefits to turmeric, or more specifically the yellow-pigmented active ingredient curcumin. It has been used as an anti-inflammatory for many years is natural medicine and, as of late has been the subject of numerous scientific studies.
As I have had a lot of issues with inflammation in the past, when trying to incorporate it into my diet I struggled to find a tasty way to do it. It has a pretty strong flavour and can overpower whichever meal you add it to, especially when you are trying to get a good dose in.
Then I came across the ‘Golden Latte’.
I have seen it in café’s since but I enjoy making my own as I think it tastes better. So if you’re looking for an anti-inflammatory drink to get you through the winter, you should try this!
Heat up 250ml milk in a saucepan. I use home-made almond milk as it is tastier and sweeter than store-bought almond milk (and I am not a fan of dairy), but you can use any milk. Once it is warmed up you put one-teaspoon of ground turmeric, and one-teaspoon organic honey or maple syrup, 1 pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon, one pinch of black pepper, stir it through and VOILA! You have a beautiful, creamy Golden Latte.
If you want it extra fluffy, chuck it in the blender before drinking it, or blend with a hand-held blender. If it’s too strong you just add extra sweetness with either raw sugar or some stevia.
