Turmeric is going mainstream. Enough so that Starbucks recently introduced a Turmeric Latte. Sadly it’s only currently available in the U.K. So we whipped up this oh-so-sumptuous homemade version to tied us over until the Seattle coffee roaster brings it stateside.
1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
¾ teaspoon turmeric powder or 1 inch piece fresh turmeric, peeled
¼ teaspoon ground ginger or 3/4 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
¾ teaspoon cinnamon
Honey to taste (about 1 large teaspoon)
Pinch of black pepper (to ensure proper absorption of turmeric)
For extra creaminess and frothiness, add 1 tablespoon almond or cashew butter.
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Heat in a mug in the microwave or in a small pot on the stove. Makes 2 servings. Mmmmm.
