Warming Turmeric Latte

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1 cup boxed coconut milk*
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or liquid sweetener of choice**)
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ tsp Matcha Love Organic Matcha powder
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • Pinch of ground cardamom
  • Pinch of ground ginger

*Boxed coconut milk is different than canned coconut milk. It is thinner, and imparts a creamy taste without as much coconut flavor. Boxed coconut milk can be substituted for other dairy-free nut milks (e.g. Almond, Cashew, etc.). Look for plain and unsweetened varieties. Otherwise, if using a sweetened nut milk, you may wish to reduce the amount of maple syrup. Regular milk works as well.
**Other liquid sweetener options include honey, agave, etc.

Directions

  1. In a small pot, heat milk and maple syrup to 175º C/80º F.
  2. Meanwhile, add sifted matcha powder, turmeric, cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom and ginger to your favorite matcha bowl. Add hot water and use a bamboo whisk until light and frothy. Transfer matcha mixture to a mug
  3. Once milk is heated, pour it into the mug of matcha. Stir to incorporate.
