Pumpkin Spice Latte or Turmeric/Ginger Latte?

I don’t know about you, but I have learned to appreciate the change in weather. Doesn’t it just warm you up and make you feel all tingly inside to see the beautiful red, yellow and orange leaves? Not to mention—how much I love  all the warm seasonal foods at the local market.

And the Pumpkin Spice Latte—oh the PSL…the beverage that marks the beginning of fall for most people…

Me? I prefer to skip the PSL and you may want to as well. Especially when you consider that it contains caramel coloring, no real pumpkin, loads of sugar, preservatives and sulfites. Click here to read more about the ingredients in a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.

Instead, I prefer to warm up a big mug of Golden Milk (hint—it’s NOT milk at all)  or what I call Turmeric/Ginger Latte to show my immune system as well as my root and solar plexus some good old-fashioned lovin’. Trust me, once you taste the frothy spiciness of this warm-your-belly herbal remedy…it’s sure to become your new fall staple.

Below is the recipe
Turmeric/Ginger Latte

Ingredients:

1 cup of unsweetened coconut milk

½ cup water

1 Tbs coconut oil

1 tsp powdered turmeric

1 tsp powdered ginger

2 tsp of cacao (optional)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Raw Local honey to taste or Stevia

1 dash of cinnamon

1/4 cup of unsweetened coconut milk

 

Directions: Place first seven ingredients in a small pot. Warm on medium heat until hot. Put in blender or nutribullet (my favorite type of blender). Add honey and 1/4 cup of cold coconut milk. Blend for about 20 secs. Pour in your favorite cup and add a dash of cinnamon. Enjoy!

The key to making this drink is blending all of the ingredients in a blender. This gives the drink a creamy, frothy like consistency. All I can say is delicious! I can’t seem to get enough.
