I always need something a little sweet to end the day. I often try and make that just a peppermint and liquorice tea, but that doesn’t always hit the spot, especially when I’m craving chocolate! The problem with that is the caffeine in the dark chocolate I crave doesn’t make for great sleep, and even a healthy hot chocolate can give me too much of a lift to drift off to sleep easily.
I needed something new, something a little sweet but not so sweet that it would impact my sleep. Enter the Turmeric Latte!
I’d tried a Turmeric Latte in a cafe in York a few months ago. It had been ok but the turmeric taste was a little overpowering for my liking. I wanted to try and create a recipe of my own, given the incredible benefits of turmeric, or rather the benefits of turmeric’s active compound, curcumin:
♥ Relieves depression
♥ Lowers blood glucose levels
♥ High in antioxidants
♥ Prevents premature aging
Impressive eh? Add to that some other beneficial spices in the form of ginger and cinnamon and you have yourself a warming drink packed with health-boosting properties that is calming and relaxing, perfect for before bed.
I’m going to give you a few different variations as I’ve made this several different ways depending on what I have on hand and what I fancy.
I like to blend mine using a basic little electric whisk. You could also use a blender or a hand whisk to froth this up!
