I've been reading about the health benefits of turmeric and tried a turmeric latte recently. I thought I'd have a go at making it at home.
Here's a recipe (thanks to Nadia Lim) if you're keen to give it a go too.
Fresh turmeric 3cm piece, peeled (or 3/4 teaspoon turmeric powder)
Fresh ginger 2cm piece, peeled (or ¼ - ½ teaspoon ground ginger)
Black pepper pinch of
Honey 1 heaped teaspoon
Almond, cashew nut or hazelnut butter 1 heaped tablespoon
Water 1 ½ cups (or milk, for a creamier drink)
Ground cinnamon ½ - ¾ teaspoon
Vanilla essence or extract 1 teaspoon
Salt good pinch of
1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and frothy.
2. Warm up in a small pot and pour into mugs, or pour into mugs and warm up in the microwave.
Sprinkle over more cinnamon to serve
