Turmeric Latte

BENEFITS OF TURMERIC

I bet you never thought of Turmeric in a latte before? Scroll down if you want to jump straight to the ingredients. But, you should really read this

Turmeric is part of the ginger family therefore has anti-inflammatory properties that help to heal wounds and irritation, so it’s often used for skin care. The herbs antiseptic properties help to reduce acne scars, spots and pigmentation when consumed consistently. It has loads more benefits including helping with digestive issues, building your immune system and managing depression! Whenever I’ve taken it, I’ve noticed that it puts me in a really calm and relaxed state, all I want to do is just cuddle up and sleep. That means something right?

Turmeric produces a chemical called Curcumin, which gives it that beautiful golden colour. Curcumin is proven to help with joint pain, stiffness and the functioning of the kidneys and brain, keeping them all very healthy. You should actually take black pepper with turmeric as it will absorb it a lot more! When you read on, you will find a link to the turmeric paste that I used to make my latte, this already has black pepper inside, so you don’t have to worry about that.

You coffee & black tea lovers should definitely start replacing your daily drinks with this! If you didn’t know, caffeine actually soaks up all of the iron packed meals that you might be consuming with your tea’s and coffee’s, making you even more tired. Therefore triggers migraines and headaches and possibly leading to iron deficiency. I know this because I went through a stage where I was constantly researching how to boost my iron levels once I became vegan, and stumbled across this fact. Also, GREEN TEA, I didn’t know this before, but most green tea’s contain caffeine. So watch out for that! Drinking it with a meal can decrease iron absorption by 50% or more.

I stopped having normal tea for about 6 months when I first became vegan and let me tell you now, I noticed a MASSIVE DIFFERENCE! I replaced my tea’s with herbal’s and I felt a lot better for it. Now I’m trying out Turmeric Latte’s and Matcha tea’s.

Try this out…

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of Almond milk 

1 tsp of ginger Turmeric paste (see the link on the image below to check out the paste that I used)

5 dates

Boil the almond milk with the dates in a saucepan. Once it’s heated, pour it into a blender and blend 😊 The blender will naturally give you that thick latte texture and will be really fluffy. The longer you leave it blending, the better.

I have a sweet tooth so I usually add some sort of natural sweetener to my hot drinks, but found that with this Turmeric Latte, it wasn't so necessary. The colour, well, it's a refreshing bright yellow as you can see, a colourful drink is always the best! The brand has two mixtures, ginger and vanilla. I haven't tried the vanilla but I'm imagining it’s just as great. I highly recommend buying this amazing product, it’s small but powerful and will last a long time!

Caramel Hot Chocolate

You know when you’re out and it’s freezing, or you’re at work on your lunch break and all you keep thinking about is going home to a nice warm house, sitting down on the sofa with a hot drink and putting on movie. This is me like every day at work. Although I’m not exactly working today, but I appreciate this so much…Just being able to wake up whenever and make a yummy hot chocolate, which by the way I haven’t made in forever because work generally makes me so lazy.

Ingredients – makes 2 cups

4 tsp of Hot chocolate powder

2 1/2 cups of almond milk

2 tsp of caramel syrup

A pinch of salt

Coconut flakes to top 🙂

 

Benefits of Cornflower Tea

tea 2

Cornflower has antiseptic properties guysss! (only the blue coloured ones though). You can use it externally as well as internally, to help heal wounds and reduce inflammation. I had no idea, I originally purchased the petals for decoration for my smoothies, so you can imagine how amazed I was to learn how great this flower really is.

  • It’s high in calcium and Vitamin C!
  • Good for the digestive system – Constipation.
  • Rich in folic acid
  • Known to help protect the liver

So literally add a teaspoon of dried cornflower petals into a pan of water and boil for 5 minutes. Or just add the petals directly into your cup of boiling water and sit for 5-7 minutes.

I found my cornflower petals on Amazon, £2.75 for 5g jar, it’s small but seeing as you will only use a teaspoon every now and then, it will last you long enough!  – click here to view/buy.

Herbal tea is amazing for you! Seriously, if you are the type of person to get quite hungry during your meals, make a tea! It helps with cravings because they normally taste really nice plus it’s completely natural.
