A Turmeric Latte doesn’t sound that appealing, does it? Well these last few weeks my stomach has been all over the place. Thomas said,”it sounds like there’s a witches brew in there.” Not sure if that really paints a picture for you.What’s weird is that nothing in my diet has changed. Nothing is different at all so I’m not sure why my stomach hates me. Either way I knew I needed to take action.
I decided that I needed some turmeric in my life. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and is really helpful with gut issues. Plus when you mix it with specific spices it can really help your upset stomach. I’ve drank about three of these healing lattes since my stomach problems occurred, things are looking up! I’m starting to feel somewhat normal again. I know that I need to add some probiotics into my routine, but for now these lattes are my life line, oh and water.
Healing Turmeric Latte
- 2 cups of almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of raw honey
- 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1.4 teaspoon of ground ginger
- Cinnamon stick (optional)
- Put all your ingredients into a small sauce pan.
- Place on medium to high heat, and whisk together.
- I recommend putting it into a blender after. Blend it for about 3 minutes.
- Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!
***There are a lot of spices in this drink so be sure to whisk as much as possible. I’ve noticed that all the spices sink to the bottom if I don’t whisk enough. Adding into the blender helps too.
Also, if you don’t want to use that much almond milk, I’ve subbed the second cup with water and it tasted just as good.
Defeating gut issues the natural way rather than taking some sort of pill makes me happy! I’m open to any other natural healing suggestions if you have them.
