This has become my new afternoon pick-me-up (I have my morning matcha to get things kicking-- more on that later). I've been off coffee for a few months now and have really been loving it-- no sugar cravings or lulls in the afternoon and the feeling of clean energy. Adding turmeric into my routine through this simple and delicious latte has definitely contributed to me feeling even better than I did before. Turmeric has been used for over 4000 years in healing practices by various cultures. It is loaded with antioxidants and has has been used in the prevention and treatment of many ailments such as cysts, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, various types of cancers, hemorrhoids and cysts. The antioxidants in turmeric reduce free radicals in the body that tamper with your DNA and impair cell membranes. I recommend getting turmeric into your diet on a daily basis.
2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
