Turmeric Latte

After having a few of these out and about in cafes, I decided it was time to try making one at home. Turmeric has a unique taste and is most commonly known for its use in curry. So if you are thinking what on earth… don’t worry.

I love them, they’re an odd colour, yes, but a unique taste that I would happily replace coffee with on most occasions. At first, they taste a little grainy- I’d advise to miss out the last sip until you are used to the taste, but after a few attempts I am in love with them. The other spices give such a warming feel, especially during the colder months.

A substance in turmeric called curcumin has proven medicinal powers such as anti-inflammatory benefits and even improved brain function, but I just drink it for the taste. If you do want to know more about this, have a look at this article :
