Spiced turmeric latte

Say goodbye to coffee, and hello to turmeric lattes! They’re warming and nourishing, not to mention packed with antioxidants!

Turmeric is such a rock star ingredient, I like to use it as many places as I can. Along with the ginger and cinnamon, it makes a comforting, nourishing hot drink. You can use milk instead of water for a creamier drink. I’ve added a heaped tablespoon of nut butter for extra creaminess – it also helps create a nice creamy froth on top of the latte (just like the creamy frothy part on top of a latte or cappuccino!). Keep some already made in the fridge and simply heat in the morning. Enjoy!
