golden milk: ginger + turmeric latte recipe ✨
People go crazy for golden milk–and why not? It's a delicious way to get a dose of ultra-healthy turmeric, and is the perfect warm and cozy beverage for bedtime. One twist on golden milk that the fam and I really enjoyed recently was a ginger + turmeric latte from Goop.
Here's my modified version of that recipe:
GINGER + TURMERIC LATTE RECIPE 📖
1 T turmeric root, finely chopped
1 T ginger root, finely chopped
1 T organic maple syrup
pinch of pink Himalayan sea salt
big pinch of black pepper, freshly ground
2 C unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
Throw everything but the almond milk in a blender. Heat the almond milk on the stovetop until it just barely starts to simmer. Pour the almond milk in the blender over the other ingredients, and blend it for a long time–until it's nice and frothy. (Careful while you blend; it's hot!)
Pour into mugs and enjoy. 🍵
