Simple Turmeric Latte with Ginger

The frothiness of this Turmeric Latte is achieved by blending it in a small blender for 5 seconds or less. Because the milk is warmed, blending it any longer than this is not recommended. This is definitely a cafe-worthy drink. Once you try it I guarantee you will be hooked just like me.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (+2 tbsp) milk or milk alternative (milk with a fat content works best*)
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger root peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp fresh turmeric root peeled and minced
  • 1 tsp coconut oil extra virgin
  • 1 tsp maple syrup (or honey)
  • dash sea salt

Instructions

  • Heat the milk or milk alternative in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring it just before the boiling point. You shouldn't see bubbles forming, but instead some small movement in the liquid. Remove from heat.
  • Add the ginger, turmeric, coconut oil, maple syrup and the salt into a small blender (I use a Nutri Bullet but a Magic Bullet would work just fine). Add 2 tbsp of milk to help the mixture blend better. Blend the mixture until the ginger and turmeric make a nice liquid puree.
  • Next, add the warmed milk to the blender. Blend for 5 seconds or less, no longer because the warmed liquid will create a negative pressure and the lid of the blender will be difficult to remove.
  • You have an option to strain it, but I prefer to not. When you pour the drink, a nice foam should form on the top layer. Taste and adjust for sweetness.

Notes

Adapted from Goop - Ginger Turmeric Latte
*Choosing a milk alternative with a higher fat content makes for a more creamy late. I like using Pea Milk. Organic would work too. I have also made it with my Homemade Hemp Milk Recipe.
Make it vegan: Use milk alternatives, and maple syrup in place of honey.
Add more protein: Use Pea Milk, Soy Milk or Homemade Hemp Milk which are higher in protein than other milk alternatives.
Boost the nutrients: Try adding double the amount of fresh ginger and turmeric for a stronger and more nutrient-dense drink.
