We all need to spice up our lives every once in awhile. For us early risers – reluctant ones, too – that means switching it up when it comes to our morning cup of coffee. Wake up to something a little healthier and try turmeric mylk.
As an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, turmeric is packed with several benefits that are sure to keep you on your feet and healthy. At the same time, it makes for a flavorful latte that’s a mix of sweet and spicy. Just be careful when drinking because it will stain clothes and leave your lips a not-so-fabulous yellow!
Ingredients & Supplies
1 ½ C non-dairy milk
½ Tbsp coconut oil
1 tsp turmeric
½ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ginger
¼ tsp black pepper
- Heat your stove on medium-high heat.
- Combine all of your ingredients in a small saucepan and give it a quick whisk.
We swapped out ginger for a blend of spices, including ginger, nutmeg and cloves. We also used almond milk as our dairy substitute.
- Place your pot on the stove and bring it to a gentle boil, stirring occasionally. Once it begins to really steam, whisk quickly. This is when you can froth it, for a latte-style drink.
- Pour into a mug and add honey or agave to taste.
