Spiced Golden Latte

Spiced Golden Latte

I love the beautiful color of this Spiced Golden Latte – hence “golden” in the title. It is so delicious and feels indulgent, and actually has many health benefits. The color comes from the antioxidant-rich turmeric!

This spiced latte contains ingredients that create not only a delicious flavor, but also are great for the immune system, as well as digestive and heart health. Not to shabby for a latte.

So what’s in this Spiced Golden Latte?

  1. Turmeric
    • Contains anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidants from its main component curcumin
  2. Black Pepper
    • This coupled with turmeric allows the body to absorb curcumin (the key ingredient in turmeric) which is a strong anti-inflammatory
  3. Cardamom
    • Also contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties
  4. Ginger
    • Great source of vitamin B6. Also, high in gingerol, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
  5. Tahini
    • Good source of B vitamins, magnesium, iron, zinc and copper
  6. Cinnamon
    • Contains high levels of antioxidants, and also known to help regulate blood sugar

These spices together also act as a fabulous decongestant if you ever have a cold. So, before grabbing your morning coffee, think about making this latte part of your morning routine!
