WINTER BOOSTER : Delicious tumeric latte

Also known as ‘’golden milk’’, this is one of my favourite winter booster!
A delicious ayurvedic recipe which has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties..

Ingredients
–    1 cup of unsweetened non-dairy milk, preferably almond or coconut milk
–    1 cinnamon stick
–    1 tablespoon of virgin coconut oil
–    ¼ teaspoon of cardamom powder
–    1 pinch of crushed saffron
–    1  fresh small turmeric root, unpeeled, thinly sliced, or 1/2 teaspoon dried turmeric
–    1 small piece of ginger, unpeeled, thinly sliced
–    A pinch of black pepper (to activate the turmeric anti-inflammatory properties )
–    Ground cinnamon (for serving)

–    Optional :  a teaspoon of raw honey

PS : If you drink the above in the evening, before going to sleep,  it is best not to add the ginger which can be too stimulating.

Preparation
–    Whisk the milk, with the above ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a low boil.
–    Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
–    Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into mugs and top with a dash of cinnamon.

Optional  : to add a  bit of sweetness, when a drinkable temperature is reached, add 1 teaspoon of honey (raw preferably)

You can froth the above preparation to  give it a ‘cappuccino’ like effect.
Quickly done and so delicious ! Enjoy.
