BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY WITH THIS EASY & SUPER YUMMY TURMERIC LATTE

Updated: Oct 19

Having Costa Turmeric Latte every morning? Learn how to do the magic anti-inflammatory Golden Milk by yourself with this super easy vegan yummy recipe!



Yes, it’s yet one more praise to the anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric! And, yes, turmeric really works. I’m just one of many who experienced almost magical effects of this bright orange root. I discovered it when my intense yoga practice in combination with offering massage therapy full-time started being hard on my joints. Having heard about turmeric so many times, I decided to give it a try. And the results were unbelievable. I literally felt my joints and muscle aches melting away within hours and the next day I woke up being able to move without pain.


Turmeric is praised in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as various schools of herbalism. Having done some research, I discovered that it works wonders for women’s health as it can help balance the hormones right before and during the peak of the menstrual cycle. It can also help calm down anxiety if, like myself, you are that hyperactive type and are often feel stressed.


On top of all the benefits, turmeric is surprisingly tasty. So you won’t have to down it quickly like bitter medicine, instead, try adding it to your smoothies or make hot/iced latte with it.

Here are a couple of recipes of a drink that often saves my life, helps me get back to work 100% and feeling great:


HOT TURMERIC LATTE (the so-called "GOLDEN MILK"):

  • a glass of almond/oat/cashew milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder

  • 1/3 teaspoon of cinnamon powder

  • 3 slices of fresh ginger

  • stevia sweetener (optional)

Heat up the milk in the saucepan, take off the stove right before boiling. Pour half into the mug. Mix in the spices – I use a bamboo matcha whisk (easily obtained on Amazon), which also foams the milk up nicely. Add the rest of the milk. Let sit for 2-3 minutes. Enjoy!



BANANA, ALMOND BUTTER AND TURMERIC SMOOTHIE

  • 1 medium ripe banana

  • 2 tablespoons of dark roast almond butter

  • 100ml oat/almond/cashew/coconut milk

  • 1 date

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

Throw everything into a blender. Blend. Pour over ice (optional). Enjoy.


ICED TURMERIC LATTE:

  • a glass of almond/oat/cashew milk

  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder

  • 1/3 teaspoon of cinnamon

  • pinch of ginger powder

  • 2 dates

Throw everything into a blender. Blend. Pour over ice (optional). Enjoy.
