Adaptogenic Turmeric Latte

Turmeric latte recipe & content provided by Rosie Tran, Kale In The Clouds

Turmeric lattes are popping up in coffee shops and restaurants everywhere — but why the hype? While turmeric has been used for centuries as ayurvedic medicine, it’s getting time in the spotlight for its science-backed health benefits. Studies show that turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and may improve your mood.[1]

Curcumin, the compound that gives turmeric its bright color, is the key reason why turmeric is so good for you. And while seasonings like black pepper can help you absorb curcumin better, science shows that taking it with healthy fat may help you get the benefits too.[2] This turmeric latte incorporates both fat-filled coconut milk and black pepper to help you get the most out of every sunny sip.

When you add adaptogens to your turmeric latte, you supercharge your drink even more. This golden milk includes ashwagandha — an adaptogen that may support adrenal health and reduced stress levels.[3]

Best of all? This turmeric latte is keto, vegan, paleo, and whole30-compliant. Enjoy it hot or iced for a soothing beverage that can help you keep your cool.

This turmeric latte recipe turns traditional golden milk into a warm beverage that helps you keep your cool. Whole30-, keto-, and paleo-friendly.
