The ingredients in this recipe are second to none in terms of healthy, nutritious properties. A delicious warming drink and far healthier than standard lattes from cafes and restaurants.
Ginger is a known agent for relieving digestive problems, particularly if using the root powder, and similarly, using turmeric root powder you will absorb the natural inflammatory properties contained therein.
Almond milk is a healthier option to use rather than cows or goats milk, as well as it being suitable for vegetarians. Coconut sugar is a pleasing and more beneficial substitute for normal refined sugar.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
- 2tsp ground organic ginger
- 1 heaped tsp Organic Fresh Body Mind turmeric
- 1tbsp organic coconut palm sugar
- 1tbsp organic cold pressed coconut oil
- 2 cups almond milk
- Sprinkle of cinnamon for the topping
Options: You could use a sprinkle of high quality 70% cocoa solids grated dark chocolate instead of cinnamon (quite indulgent!)
If you enjoy a nutty flavor, you can use cashew nut milk instead.
- Place the turmeric, coconut sugar, coconut oil and ginger into your blender.
- Gently heat the almond milk in a small pan over a medium/low heat and allow to simmer – do not boil.
- When gently simmering, pour the milk into the blender. Blitz until everything is blended and nice and smooth.
