The week after a holidays we always feel like we need a good detox yet I’m still in a mood to relax and suffer family. Enter this multiple of dual of my favorite healthy pleasures: coffee + turmeric tea (or golden milk).
The pretence is, this cinnamon turmeric latte doesn’t enclose coffee during all… it only tastes like it! Roasted chicory base creates this turmeric tea additional clever and works both as a “get me out of bed” splash in a morning or a relaxing splash during night.
As an combined bonus, it can boost shield and ease inflammation too!
Why a Coffee Substitute?
I’m not snubbing coffee here. In fact, we have never been bashful about my adore of all things coffee (as my DIY coffee bar and French press will attest). Coffee has a lot of proven health benefits, generally if we make it a right way.
Still, if we are supportive to caffeine or onslaught with cortisol levels as we did, there is justification that abstaining from coffee for a while might be a good idea. This turmeric latte recipe is a good approach to get a ambience of coffee but any caffeine.
A Turmeric Latte… for Coffee Lovers!
This turmeric latte recipe calls for many of a same superfood mixture as turmeric tea, including cinnamon, black pepper, and of march a magnanimous sip of turmeric powder for limit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits.
Roasted and belligerent chicory base is local to France and has been used for centuries as a cheaper and some-more accessible coffee alternative. French colonists in a New Orleans area took to blending it into their coffee and a tradition binds clever today. The Cafe du Monde even serves chicory coffee with their famous beignets.
There’s some-more than story behind chicory, though. It can indeed be therapeutic. Several studies uncover chicory has cardiovascular and anti-inflammatory advantages due in partial to the being a abounding source of plant phenolics. It also contains a high volume of vitamin A, vitamin C, and gut-friendly dietary fiber from inulin.
Finally, this recipe gets in a sip of healthy fats from my favorite, coconut oil. The lauric poison in coconut oil gives it good antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties.
