I admit, I love to try new foods trends. I read an incredible amount about food, new foods and why you should just eat these new foods. My girlfriend Cathrine is always laughing, “how do you know that, again”? But today she wrote me a text, “you’ve even have turmeric at home”? She had just sent me a photo to an article in the Glamour Magazine, saying food bloggers are the new style icons. Including recipes for the “new” Latte Creations, the Matcha Latte, so 2014, the Turmeric Latte probably more likely 2015, seems 2016 is the year of the beetroot latte.
Until I share beetroot latte you must still wait a bit, currently the beetroot landed in my detox juice this morning. But the recipe for turmeric latte I do not want to hide from you. I could go on at length to tell you why you absolutely should drink turmeric latte or rather why turmeric is so healthy, but if you are a regular on my blog, you certainly already read about it. Otherwise you will find in my Kitchen Glossary more about turmeric and other so-called “superfoods”.
My girlfriend Cathrine has an excuse, my answer to her astonished question, why I do keep turmeric at home, of course I could only answer with my blog. But Cathrine is mother of adorable twins, so their time is somewhat limited for my blog and so they are excused. Cathrine was actually one of the first people, I told that I would start a food blog. I knew I would get her absolut honest opinion and excellent advice. Of course, I was right, until today, even though she does not know all recipe, I can rely on her support.
I am very grateful to have those special friends in my life. Right now in the fall there is nothing better than to meet with friends for dinner or just a nice coffee. Maybe one or the other coffee is from now on replaced with a Matcha Latte or Turmeric Latte. In order to maximize the healthy benefits of turmeric, always add a pinch of black pepper to the dish.
Gluten free, vegan Turmeric LattePrint This
- 1 cup Almond Milk – Coconut or soy milk works as well
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon
- 0.5 inch Ginger
- 1/2 Vanilla Bean or 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 pinch Black Pepper freshly ground
- 1 tsp. Honey, Stevia, Xylit or any other sweetener
- Put all the ingredients in a pot and heat everything up, have it boiling on small for approx. 5 minutes.
- To foam everything you have numerous options, either in the mixer or you have same as me an electric milk foamer. Either one that kind of looks like a water boiler, only there is something in the middle that also foams the milk while heating it. I do not even need to use a pot, I can just add everything to my milk foamer.
