Turmeric Latte

Turmeric, turmeric, turmeric.

The term (turm?) is mentioned so often it practically sounds like the mantra of the wellness-obsessed (after matcha, matcha, matcha).

Here’s the thing: the trendy root has gotten a lot of hype because its potential anti-inflammatory health benefits are pretty incredible. Once you get on board, though, the biggest challenge is figuring out how to get it into your diet. It’s got a very particular flavor and color and you can’t just start sprinkling it on everything.

This latte, then, is a great solution, especially during winter months, when you kind of want to be sipping something warm 24-7. It’ll warm you up from the inside out, and you might just inadvertently start to hear the mantra, too.



  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/3 teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • dash black pepper
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon maple syrup or coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil


  • Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on medium for less than 5 seconds.
  • Pour mix into sauce pan and heat for 2 to 4 minutes over medium heat.
  • Drink and enjoy!


Turmeric is filled with curcumin, which acts as a powerful antioxidant to fight free radicals while at the same time lowering levels of enzymes that cause inflammation. And who doesn’t love a delish warm beverage you can turn to on days when you’ve really gone too far with the coffee?
