Turmeric Chai Latte 2

Most mornings I crave something warm to drink before I have my breakfast. I’m not a coffee person, never have been and sometimes tea can get a little boring. Enter the turmeric chai latte which has now changed my day for the better. I knew it was a reaaaaally solid recipe when I started to make it for friends and family when they came over and they all loved it so much. Now I get requests before they come over begging me to make it! I’m very excited to share this recipe with you so you can enjoy it as well and I can confidently say it’s the best turmeric latte I’ve ever had.

This golden milk is not only super-delicious but also super-easy. It’s best when made in the blender as it gets super frothy just like your favourite coffee shop would make it. However, if you don’t have a blender that opens on top (do NOT use a screw-bottom blender like a magic bullet or nutra bullet when blending hot drinks), you can also make this on the stovetop using a whisk to combine everything nicely. Just make sure you grind your spices first.

I find when I make a cup of this in the morning it fills me up and I won’t have breakfast for another couple of hours. This is due in part to the healthy fats used like almond butter and raw coconut oil.

I love the addition of chai spices like cardamom, cloves, cinnamon and black pepper. They take this latte to the next level adding tons of vibrant, spicey flavour. I like to sweeten my turmeric lattes with raw honey but if you’re a vegan maple syrup or coconut nectar would work well too.
