Something to get you out of bed in the morning...
With the amount of turmeric we ingest every week, we wonder why we haven't turned yellow yet.
The thing with turmeric is simple, it’s GOOD FOR YOU. It doesn’t take much effort to add a teaspoon of it to everything, from soups and roasted vegetables to cakes and now lattes!
We showed you how to make the tastiest Turmeric Cake some time ago, today we are venturing into the trendier waters of Turmeric Lattes.
Don’t forget to wear an apron while making this recipe, as you all might know, turmeric is extremely staining! We love Urbanara’s Simnas 100% Linen Apron. It has two pockets on the front so you can keep any lightweight tools or your phone and it’s super comfortable (as opposed to other more stiff aprons). They come in the most beautiful colours!
What we love about this bright and beautiful spice is the proven track of benefits, which you might not see in the short term but definitely have a positive impact in your health. Turmeric is known for being anti-inflammatory and a great way to improve digestion. It can also help improve bacterial and viral infections which makes it a great spice to use during the colder months. Also known for its cleansing properties, introducing turmeric into your diet can help keep your liver healthy. This doesn’t mean you should go abusing it, like everything, this goodness only comes in moderation.
As per the JOY-way, we tried, we tested it, we loved it.

– To make a cup of turmeric latte start by mixing 1/2 a teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of the paste with your choice of milk. You can add more of the paste if you prefer a stronger taste.
– Heat the milk and turmeric over medium heat, if you have a bamboo whisk, use it to create some froth.
