Tasty Turmeric Latte

 Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and helps to reduce oxidative stress. It also helps stabilize your metabolism and targets fat. Including black pepper in your latte helps you absorb the turmeric for maximum efficiency.

  • 250ml almond/oat milk

  • 1 heaped teaspoon turmeric powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • A few twists of black pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon maple/agave syrup

Method

  1. Add all ingredients into a medium sized pan and whisk them all together until the mixture is hot but not boiling.

  2. Pour the turmeric mixture into a blender and blend on medium speed for 2-3 minutes.

  3. Return to pan to reheat, pour into your fave mug and enjoy your warming tasty latte!
