The Five Minute Health Boosting Ginger and Turmeric Latte - Fresh Body Mind

The Five Minute Health Boosting Ginger and Turmeric Latte

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.

Ingredients:

Serves:  2

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.

Instructions:

  1. Place the turmeric, coconut sugar, coconut oil and ginger into your blender.
  2. Gently heat the almond milk in a small pan over a medium/low heat and allow to simmer – do not boil.
  3. When gently simmering, pour the milk into the blender. Blitz until everything is blended and nice and smooth.
