So by now I think we have all well and truly caught on to the turmeric latte craze that has hit Melbourne, some of us even swapping out beloved chai’s for a Golden Latte at our favorite cafe… but what makes this ancient Ayurvedic drink so special? Thanks to turmeric’s high levels of curcumin (the pigment that gives it that bright yellow colour) it is a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
We want to share our favorite turmeric latte recipe for you to make at home as well as some of the benefits that just ¼ of a teaspoon of turmeric a day can have on your health. Remember - pairing turmeric with black pepper significantly increases the amount of curcumin your body absorbs from the spice!
