black latte recipe

Last year I went on a turmeric tea kick  (thanks, Heidi!).  You can see the base for it in this  Turmeric Toddy  recipe.  I had a cup of the non boozy version every afternoon for a month straight. This year I tried the Turmeric Latte from Nutrition Stripped and was instantly hooked.

Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory power spice. When it’s paired with warm almond milk, coconut oil, honey, and cinnamon, pure magic happens.  For the past three weeks I’ve been enjoying a cup in the afternoon when I’m feeling particularly crunchy/tired and in need of something sweet. The fat from the coconut oil helps satisfy me until dinner- something I thought was absolutely impossible.

Mix almond milk and coconut oil in a small saucepan and simmer over the stove until warmed through, about 6-8 minutes. Whisk in honey, turmeric, cinnamon and salt. Stir until mixture is frothy and serve.  Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

This sounds delicious. I’ve been adding turmeric to a lot of my dishes lately, from canned soup to eggs. I believe to get the full anti-inflammatory benefit of turmeric (curcumin) you need to add some black pepper, too.

an easy golden turmeric latte recipe that’s just as delicious as it is beautiful! this easy golden turmeric latte is loaded with the warm flavors, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. great for a calming morning drink, or an afternoon pick-me-up!

so here’s the deal. as a born-&-raised wisconsin gal, milk has always been a huge part of my life. family meals, whether breakfast or supper, were never complete without icy cold glasses of milk for everyone at the table. school snacks & lunches always started by grabbing a milk from the milk cooler. (side note – major shout out to anyone who drank their school milk out of a pouch!!) 

my love affair with all things dairy hasn’t gone anywhere as an adult. while i have an obvious fondness of fancy lattes & cheese boards , milk is also one of my go-tos for a healthy punch of nutrients on a daily basis. & while milk alternatives are kind of having a moment right now, i just cannot bring myself to give up milk. i love the protein it adds to my morning coffee & the creaminess it adds to my daily smoothie . & above all, i love finding new ways to use milk in my daily life that make me feel both comforted & amazing all at once.

i first tried a golden turmeric latte at my favorite neighborhood coffee shop. once i saw the beautiful golden hue & imagined the warming flavors of turmeric + ginger + cinnamon frothed together into creamy perfection, it was one of those things that i couldn’t not try, you know?

The perfect breakfast beverage, Paleo Chai Latte, made with warming Ayurvedic spices will keep you cozy during the cold weather. Made with eggs, coconut oil, and antioxidant rich chai spices including cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves, this rich hot drink makes a great on-the-go breakfast. Sometimes I serve Paleo Chai Latte as a healthy snack in the afternoon, since it gives me a burst of real energy without any of the caffeine.

Speaking of caffeine, while many people on the paleo diet start their days off with bulletproof coffee, I do not. I haven’t had coffee since 1993. I think I had a headache for three days straight when I gave up coffee cold turkey a couple of decades ago. My body simply doesn’t tolerate caffeine. The silver lining of giving up coffee is my homemade Dandelion Root Coffee , my favorite coffee substitute beverage. In the winter I drink it almost every day, and a couple of times per week in the summer.

Fans rave about my Dandelion Root Coffee. Like regular coffee, its primary flavor is bitter, a flavor that is highly underrated in our culture and very important in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine. Finally, my homemade Dandelion Root Coffee is a great liver cleanser. For me, giving up caffeine and getting healthy liver cleansing dandelion root into my body every day is a win-win!

This Paleo Chai Latte is another great hot drink that’s similar to chai tea, or a chai latte! It’s packed with protein from eggs, and full of fabulous fat from coconut oil. If you are raw egg-phobic, the great thing about this paleo drink is that the boiling water poaches the eggs a bit. If you’re looking for a quick and easy, healthy breakfast recipe this is it!

Quoting webmd here: ” Beets are rich in natural chemicals called nitrates. Through a chain reaction, your body changes nitrates into nitric oxide, which helps with blood flow and blood pressure.” The nitrates added to meats are synthetic chemicals used to cure meats to preserve freshness, read ‘bad for you”. Hope this helps!

Yeah it is if you are exposed to unnaturally high levels of nitrates, sometimes this can happen if water has been contaminated by run off from fertilised fields but I think the levels found in vegetables are more than safe for consumption :)

I drink Golden Milk every time I feel like a cold is coming on or when I have coworkers that comes to work sick. I think it’s worked since I have yet to call a sick day. :) *knocks on wood* I’ve never been a fan of Chai Latte’s, so I’ll have to try the homemade version. My #tiuhusband will be thrilled about the Beet Latte; he loves beets!

Chai Tea Lattes are my favorite! This is awesome because its TIU approved. I really liked Golden Milk, too, when I tried it. I read somewhere that it is great to have before bedtime so this is another great recipe to have on hand. Thanks for the post!!

Are you looking for a way to incorporate the many health benefits of turmeric  into your daily life? If so, I have just the beverage for you. It’s a turmeric latte, often lovingly called “golden milk.”

But wait, could anything with “latte” in the title actually be healthy? In this case, it’s a definite “yes!”  The benefits of turmeric range from improving heart health to discouraging cancer. Turmeric also provides significant anti-inflammatory effects that can benefit such a wide variety of health concerns since inflammation is at the root of most diseases. ( 1 )

A turmeric latte or turmeric milk always requires two essential ingredients: turmeric and some type of milk. You’re probably wondering what other ingredients go into this healthy elixir. Well, I’m basically taking my  Turmeric Tea Recipe to new heights with even more health-boosting ingredients like cordyceps, reishi and ashwagandha .

Turmeric ( Curcuma longa)  is a relative of ginger   and an absolute powerhouse when it comes to health. Turmeric contains a potent antioxidant called curcumin. Not only does curcumin give turmeric (and a turmeric latte) its bright color, it’s also one of the reasons why turmeric is such a healthy spice.
