Turmeric ‘Golden Milk’ Latte

Turmeric is all the rage right now, and for good reason. Turmeric derives its medicinal superpowers from the compound curcumin, which has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may be beneficial for digestion, detoxification, and pain relief. According to a 2014 study, curcumin may be able to help fight depression. Curcumin has also been shown to be an effective anti-inflammatory agent. It may have the potential to reduce a person’s risk for heart disease, prevent cancer, treat Alzheimer’s, and aid in relieving arthritis symptoms.

 One of the easiest ways to reap the benefits of curcumin? Make a delicious turmeric tea latte, aka “golden milk.” Curcumin is fat soluble, so it’s a smart idea to drink this latte with a fatty meal or make it with whole or coconut milk.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 cup warmed coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup hot water or hot brewed rooibus tea
  • 4-6 drops of vanilla liquid stevia
  • Pinch of sea salt (optional)

Method

Add all powders to an 6 ounce tea cup. Pour in your warmed coconut milk and whisk to blend, making sure to dissolve any clumps. Add liquid stevia. Pour hot tea or water over the top of the mixture. Carefully whisk, and enjoy. Or use magic bullet to lend the non heated ingredients and then heat in a pan over the stove top.

Turmeric Tip

Don’t limit turmeric to just curries. It goes great with just about any food or drink. Add ap inch to vegetables, soups, dressing, marinades and teas. When possible, pair it with black pepper to enhance the bioavailability of the curcumin in the turmeric.

      Great Goff. Glad to know you are into natural spices for your health. The key ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, and Well and Good experts recommend 500 to 1,000 milligrams of curcumins daily to get the benefits of their anti-inflammatory properties.

    Garima,

    Love it. We will try this tea and let you know. I also started making Kombucha over COVID and want to try adding Tumeric which is tricky, but we will experiment with it.

    Thank you,

      Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogen, and ginger not only boosts your immune system and reduces inflammation but it helps cleanse your lymphatic system. So many benefits for pain, for health, and more during cold and flu season. Try this hot tea recipe, it’s delicious too! Do try Gary.

      Oh there are many benefits. Like this one there is evidence to suggest that curcumin can help improve mood in people who consume it regularly. A small study consisting of 60 participants found that taking curcumin supplements could help reduce symptoms in people with major depressive disorder. Those taking both curcumin and antidepressant drugs saw the most significant improvement. However, more research is necessary to determine its efficacy and the right doses, as the authors of the study also said that the results were not statistically significant.

      Glad you liked the recipe Sarah. Golden milk is a traditional Indian drink that people make with turmeric, which gives it a yellow or gold hue. People also call golden milk “turmeric milk.” To make golden milk, a person must warm up nondairy milk with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, and other spices. Many of these spices contain antioxidants or have anti-inflammatory properties.

      Turmeric lattes are steamed milk beverages flavoured with golden turmeric, nutmeg, cinnamon, and sometimes even ginger. The resultant concoction is a soothing, immuno-boosting, caffeine-free hot drink.Let me know if you liked it.
