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.

Let’s gather our ingredients.

If you follow me on snapchat (tshutterbean), you’ve already seen that I have these ingredients at my desk at work!

When I’m at home, I steam the almond milk with coconut oil. It makes it frothy and delicious. Alternately, you can put it in a saucepan over the stove and whisk it.

Stir it all in.

You can play around with your ingredients too. Sometimes I grate ginger in there or add a little bit of ground ginger. It creates a nice spicy vibe.

Don’t forget to add a little bit of salt. I think it balances out the sweet quite nicely.
