Turmeric Latte (Golden Milk)
"Golden Milk" or "Turmeric Latte" seems to be THE trendy drink when it comes to cold weather drinks, right!?
I honestly didn't care about it until recently, cause I always thought it's some kind of trendy drink with a half-life period of a few month. Little did I know!
Kurkuma Latte is actually some kind of magic ayurveda medicine with so many anti-inflammatory healing properties, you can almost taste the inherent goodness with each sip.
So yes, I finally made some for myself and I gotta say: Damn that's delicious! 😉
Caution: Wood or plastic will change colour! Make sure to clean your blender, mixer, cooking spoon or other cooking tools immediately. Otherwise they will take on the yellowish colour of the turmeric. And: Be careful with your clothes! Once you have some turmeric-paste on there, you won't be able to get rid of it!
- Add half a cup of water into a pot and heat it up. Add 1 tablespoon of fresh grated turmeric, as well as one piece of fresh grated ginger and a pinch of nutmeg.
- Slowly boil it up while stirring constantly. After a maximum of 10 minutes you have some kind of paste and most of the water should be gone.
- Heat up some plant milk in a pot and add as much turmeric-paste as you like. (If you want to get used to the intense flavour, just add about 2 teaspoons. If you are already familiar with the flavour of turmeric latte, you could easily add up to 3 tablespoons.)
- Add coconut oil (2 tsp - 2 tbsp, completely up to your liking), a pinch of cinnamon and freshly milled pepper and stir well.
- Pour into glasses or cups, add some maple syrup, stir again and enjoy your golden milk!
Tipp: Be aware of the fact that only cinnamon made out of ceylon-cinnamon bark is real cinnamon! Everything else is made out of cassia-cinnamon, has a much higher amount of unhealthy coumarin and isn't as flavourful!
