Make Your Own Turmeric Latte Powder

Turmeric is a member of the ginger family & has been a part of Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years, and is considered by Ayurvedic practitioners to be an auspicious herb, a key medicine.

It’s important to purchase organic turmeric and turmeric supplements from a trusted source, as compounds of synthetic curcumin are known to be present on the market.

Mixed with milk it is thought, in Ayurvedic practice, to calm the mind. And don’t we all need that right now?

  • 6 tsp turmeric powder
  • 3 tsp cinnamon powder Sri Lankan / True Verum

A mix of coconut milk and water is beautiful with this turmeric latte.

To increase the absorption of turmeric serve with a fat (or something with good fats like nuts or seeds like bliss balls or raw dessert). But since this recipe is made with milk, you're good to go! Coconut milk is lovely with turmeric latte.
