Part of my heritage is Asian from my mom’s side.  During these cold months, her go-to recipe of a Tumeric latte has not only become an addiction for me, but a relaxing drink before bed; especially since it is delicious, simple and has numerous benefits.

Tumeric is a miraculous spice commonly used in Asian cuisine, known for reducing swelling (inflammation), used to heal headaches, menstrual cramps, fever and bronchial colds/lung infections.  

This can be modified to suit your own personal tastes but mom recommends:


1 cup of Almond milk (preferably Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Milk)

1 tsp of tumeric, ginger and cinnamon

honey to sweeten


In a small saucepan, bring milk to a warm temperature (not boiling), add dry ingredients and honey to milk, whisk together.

For added creamy froth:  Add to a mason jar, cover with lid, shake vigorously for 30 seconds to 1 minute.  Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy.
