Turmeric, also know as Curcuma.

Bright yellow spice with earthy aroma and very specific, slightly bitter flavour. The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin, that is known for its antioxidants and powerful anti-inflammatory effect. Although claims that curcumin in turmeric may help to reduce innflamation remain unproven, maybe the placebo effect works on our wellbeing anyway. ;)

We usually use it as a part of curry powder in Indian food, but why not have it in a warm, indulgent cup of healthy drink.

Let me tell you how to create a tasty version of turmeric late:

What you will need:

- 1 cup of almond milk (or any other plant-based milk)

- 1 teaspoon of turmeric

- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

- Pinch of nutmeg

- Pinch of black pepper (black pepper helps to absorb curcumin into the bloodstream)

- 1 teaspoon of brown or coconut sugar/honey + cinnamon for decoration

How to make it:

Combine the spices and add it to warm milk. Mix it with a hand mixer or a cappuccino maker. Pour into a cup and decorate with cinnamon. Simple!

If you think that latte is not a latte without a coffee, don't worry, we have you covered, just chuck in a cup of espresso! 

Cuddle up on the couch, cover up with a blanked and enjoy.
