Anti-inflammatory, easy to make, and so delicious, this turmeric ‘golden milk’ recipe is a skin loving drink your body is going to thank you for.
I’ll confess, I’ve never been the biggest fan of coffee. I’ve always been incredibly sensitive to caffeine, so the most I get is a cup of matcha every now and then. I love this turmeric ‘golden milk’ recipe because it’s a cozy and comforting drink to have in the morning but doesn’t give you a crash later in the day!
Health benefits of turmeric
There are SO many amazing benefits of turmeric. For one, curcumin, the active constituent in turmeric, protects hepatocytes (liver cells) from oxidative damage. It is also an incredibly powerful anti-inflammatory so it’s great for anyone who suffers with acne. Dr. Michael Gregor recommends consuming 1/4 tsp of ground turmeric per day to reap all of the benefits. Though it might seem odd, this recipe calls for a pinch of black pepper. Piperine, the alkaloid in black pepper, has been shown to increase the absorption of of turmeric. Overall, it’s an ingredient I recommend most of my clients consume daily, especially those who are struggling with acne.
I should note that this is technically not a latte because there is no espresso involved. However, I like to call it a latte because I drink it in place of coffee or other caffeinated beverages. Whatever you call it, it’s incredibly easy to make and can be served either hot, or over ice. In addition to turmeric, this drink has cinnamon and ginger to give it all the cozy vibes. However, it’s still light and fresh so it’s perfect for Spring!
Lastly, this turmeric ‘golden milk’ recipe is made ultra creamy with the help of coconut butter. It has powerful anti-bacterial benefits and contains lots of healthy fats to keep your skin glowy and plump! If you don’t have coconut butter, you can sub the almond milk for full fat coconut milk to achieve the same frothy feel. All you need to do is heat up the milk, add all ingredients to a high speed blender, and let it process until nice and frothy.
This turmeric ‘golden milk’ latte recipe is:
- Creamy and frothy
