Vegan Golden Milk Latte
Vegan golden milk lattes are a cozy warm drink that we like to drink on a cold day snuggled in a blanket and reading a book. If it is summer, or we are in a warmer climate we prefer to make an iced golden milk beverage. Hot or cold, you are sure to get a natural buzz of this spiced antioxidant cocktail.
Health Benefits of Turmeric, Cinnamon, and Ginger
Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a medicinal herb and spice. Curcumin is the main active ingredient in tumeric, which has powerful anti-inflammatory effects, and is a very strong antioxidant. By adding black pepper into this latte, it helps the body absorb curcumin.
Apart from inflammation and toxicity, turmeric can improve brain function, lower risk of brain disease, lower risk of heart disease, help prevent cancer, help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, reduce arthritis pain, decrease depression, and fight against chronic diseases.
As for cinnamon and ginger, we could write essays about the benefits of these. Similar to turmeric, cinnamon and ginger contain powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties as well. This drink is also great for an upset stomach, as ginger is know to curb symtoms naturally. When you bring all three of these to the party, you have a powerhouse drink that gives you and your immunity a boost!
How to Make Iced Golden Milk Latte
Are you living in a hot climate? Or do you just prefer cold beverages? Try our turmeric latte recipe over ice. Simply make the recipe as instructed and pour over ice! If you do not want to water the flavor down as much, and keep a more bold drink, simply use less plant milk, which will be replaced by the ice.
If you haven’t yet indulged in a vegan Golden Milk Turmeric Latte, you’re missing out! You will experience a creaminess from the coconut oil and the plant milk, and a warming spice as if you just received a hug on the inside. If we could sum up the flavor and sensation in one word it would simply be, divine.
