Gingerbread Turmeric Latte

If you’ve been following along for awhile then you know I’m a big fan of the healthy-ish recipe.  In my book, the healthy-ish recipe is any recipe where the majority of ingredients fall on the healthy side, but it may have one or two that fall on the no so healthy side.  I mean life is about balance right? 

When I first spied this recipe for a gingerbread turmeric latte I didn’t know how I felt about it.  I mean this would be a stretch; could I really love both gingerbread and turmeric in drink form? The answer is yes.  I mean, when you think about it the flavor of gingerbread comes from spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.  Spices that are completely complimentary to turmeric.  For example, whenever I roast vegetables, squash or sweet potatoes I always sprinkle them with both cinnamon and turmeric so yeah, it should work in drink form.

And if I can add a healthy dose of turmeric to anything without disrupting the flavor profile then I’m completely game! Plus it was super easy to make. I’ve been drinking it so often I actually created a large batch of the spice mixture and placed it into a spice jar to whip this up even faster in the mornings.  

All in all, the gingerbread turmeric latte has become the perfect, cold-weather way for me to start my mornings.  Enjoy, and let me know if you try it!  Truly, MKR

Ingredients
  1. 1-2 shots of espresso
  2. 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  3. 1/8 teaspoon powdered ginger
  4. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  5. 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  6. 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  7. 8 oz almond or coconut milk
  8. agave or maple syrup for sweetening
Instructions
  1. Mix together all of your spices and place 3/4 of the mixture in the bottom of your latte/coffee mug.
  2. Heat a small pot with your non dairy milk of choice over high heat until boiling. You can also use your milk warmer or if you have a Nespresso machine just add the milk to that.
  3. Once milk is hot and frothy, pour into mug along with desired amount of espresso, and stir while pouring.
  4. Add in agave or maple syrup for sweetening and sprinkle your remaining spices on top.
  5. Add marshmallows or gingerbread cookie (optional) & enjoy!
  6. **Once you know how much agave or maple syrup you like per cup you can add that to the bottom along with your spices. That way when you pour in the hot "milk" it will begin to automatically break, and stir everything up.
