06 Jul Recipe: Easy iced turmeric latte
Warm days call for cool drinks, but you can only have so much iced coffee! This is a lovely alternative. Turmeric, celebrated for its anti-inflammatory constituents, provides an aromatic flavour. Ginger is soothing, while the cinnamon bestows a gentle sweetness. The black pepper may seem a little odd, but it unlocks the power of the turmeric—so don’t leave it out!
1 cup milk of choice (I like cashew or oat)
1 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp dried ginger
½ tsp cinnamon
A few grinds of black pepper
1. Put all ingredients (except ice cubes) in a blender and blitz on high.
2. Fill a glass with ice cubes, and pour over the turmeric latte. Sip and enjoy!
Tip: you can use a thumbnail-sized piece of fresh ginger instead of dried ginger. This will give the latte a little extra heat!
