Turmeric is an incredibly powerful spice. It has the potential to fight and reverse disease. It’s well known for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, but it can also aid in detoxification, work as a natural painkiller and may help protect against certain types of cancer.

Turmeric lattes (also called golden milk) are made with wonderful healing spices. So yes, they are a tasty little treat, but they’re also really good for you! This iced version is nourishing, takes less than 5 minutes to make and is super refreshing! Don’t forget to add a pinch of black pepper to your latte, you’ll increase curcumin (turmeric’s miracle compound) absorption!

Want to turn this into a creamy smoothie?! Add 1 big frozen banana, I do this a lot and it’s seriously delicious!

Prep Time 5 mins

Ingredients

  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • tsp ground ginger - or ¼ tsp of finely grated ginger (I love using fresh ginger)
  • Pinch of black pepper*
  • Ice

Instructions
 

  • Add all ingredients, except the ice, to a high-speed blender and blend until combined. Taste and adjust, add more turmeric for a stronger flavor or coconut nectar for sweetness.
  • Serve over ice and enjoy!
  • Want to turn this into a creamy smoothie?! Add 1 big frozen banana. I do this a lot and it’s seriously delicious!

Notes

* You won’t taste it, black pepper just increases curcumin (turmeric’s miracle compound) absorption.
