Turmeric latte with cinnamon & black pepper

DF / GF

I can only drink one small coffee a day. Otherwise I’m just too wired and can’t function effectively. My second hot drink of the day is often a turmeric latte. Though caffeine-free, this drink is energising and deeply warming – not to mention beautiful to look at! The healing properties of turmeric, cinnamon and ginger deliver your body a heap of goodness in a deliciously spicy way. Black pepper helps your body absorb the turmeric better and adds a pleasant zing.

1 cup (250ml) unsweetened almond milk

½ teaspoon ground turmeric

1 teaspoon finely grated, fresh ginger root

Generous pinch ground cinnamon

Grind of cracked black pepper

2 teaspoons good quality coconut oil

2 teaspoons coconut sugar / pure maple syrup / raw honey

Heat the almond milk until very hot but not boiling. Place in a blender along with the other ingredients. Blitz until frothy and the ginger and spices are thoroughly blended.

Serve immediately.
