2 Minute Turmeric Latte

Updated: Mar 30, 2020

Turmeric latte's are a great alternative to coffee, but boy can they sting the hip pocket.. five or six dollars for a latte? No, thank you.

Luckily I have I come up with an incredibly easy (and oh so trendy) recipe that saves the wallet and delivers on flavour and nourishment. It is also a recipe that can be adapted for the Summer and Winter months, so you can enjoy the golden goodness all year around

Check out this Healthy Hot Chocolate recipe that can also be adapted for the warmer weather.
