Turmeric Latte (aka Golden Milk) is a hidden gem. L.I.T.E.R.A.L.L.Y. Besides its amazing taste, it has many health benefits. Curcumin (the active chemical in turmeric) isn't only anti-inflammatory and packed with antioxidants, but it also helps in the treatment and prevention of diabetes and certain types of cancer. It also could be used as a pain-killer. Turmeric fights depression and is great for your skin. These were only a few of the benefits of turmeric. Try replacing your morning (or afternoon) coffee with Turmeric Latte and your body will thank you later.
It's worth the swap, isn't it?



1 tbsp Turmeric powder

1/4 tbsp Cinnamon powder or 1 Cinnamon stick

1/2 tbsp Raw honey (or to taste)

Pinch of black pepper - (helps in the absorption!)

Milk of choice (preferably non-dairy)


1/4 tbsp ginger powder

1/4 tbsp Vanilla extract

Dash of Sea salt - (to enhance the flavor)


Heat the milk, but don't bring to a boil.

Mix the turmeric, cinnamon, pepper and raw honey in a cup, until reaching a paste-like consistency.

Add a little bit of hot water (optional) and the warm milk. Steer and Voilà!

You can sprinkle some chia seeds on top for an extra nutrient boost.
