5 Reasons You Need Turmeric Or Golden Latte In Your Life
Last year, our western counterparts suddenly realised the importance of turmeric and turned it into a drink that, well, we Indians were already way too familiar with.
Turmeric latte or Haldi Doodh, as we know it, has been witness to too many bruises, a constant source of pain relief, and has been accustomed to hatred from kids across our country.
Our childhood nightmare has now turned into a fancy drink and is called Turmeric Latte or Golden Latte.
TBH, it is actually not just milk and turmeric, and sounds way tastier than what we have been used to. It is just really a plan for our future generations to drink it sans the disgust.
Here’s how you can make this quick, easy and delicious beverage.
- 1 cup almond or coconut milk
- 1 heaping tablespoon fresh turmeric root, grated
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root (or 1 teaspoon ground)
- 2 teaspoons coconut oil
- Raw honey
- Pinch of black pepper (optional)
Method: Gently warm the almond or coconut milk in a small saucepan. Do not boil. Add turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. Next, combine the coconut oil with the mixture and gently heat together until it starts melting. Continue to stir until frothy and heated through. Stir in honey or any other sweetener. Sprinkle with cinnamon for added flavour. Sip away to glory!
Now, that you have your cuppa in your hand, scroll down to see why this drink is beneficial for you, and why you should replace your normal latte with this ASAP.
