Healing Turmeric Latte

Turmeric Latte - normal and iced! With delicious flavours like licorice, vanilla, cinnamon and ginger it's impossible to not love this warming and beneficial drink that boosts the immune system!

It’s time for matcha to move over, because a new latte is in town and it’s here to stay. Turmeric latte might not be as Instagram happy as the green matcha, but it’s benefits are also pretty damn awesome, so it’s worth your time.

By now most of us have been made aware of the incredible benefits of turmeric, and I really do recommend adding it into your diet when possible – always with a pinch of ground black pepper for ultimate absorption.

I don’t want to shove loads of information down your throat, so I’ll keep it brief. Turmeric, or more specific the curcumin in turmeric, has been shown to be a potent antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-anything-and-everything really. It’s good for your health, your gut, your cells, your liver. Maybe it’s even good for your relationship, who knows!

It’s very prominent in Ayurveda, which something that truly fascinates and intrigues me, and I’m always looking to know and learn more. I’d love to escape to India for a bit, but for now I’ll just have to rely on the amazing turmeric to help me through this hectic life in London.

I use organic ground turmeric from Wunder Workshop, and I absolutely love it. It also comes in a glass jar, so no plastic in sight which is always a win!

It just isn’t good for that new white t-shirt you just bought. If it touches it, it will never come off, so be warned.
