Since cutting down on my coffee consumption I made sure there was a delicious hot drink I could replace it with. Turmeric lattes have become my new favourite drink in the morning or at night, I love how soothing it is for the body, and how good it makes me feel. This recipe has a spicy kick to it, that is grounding and nourishing.

Ginger, turmeric and cinnamon have incredible anti-inflammatory properties, which means this soothing and delicious latte is also really good for you. Turmeric is high in anti-oxidants and rich in zinc, B vitamins and iron. For those of you who haven’t tried turmeric lattes yet, I advice you to start with a small amount of turmeric, and increase the amount in your lattes slowly. Some people can find the taste over powering.
