We’ve had golden latte envy around NKHQ as of late – I’ve watched by on Instagram, hoping somebody would sometime soon bring me my very own cuppa Joe. Seems around here, if you want something you’ve got to go and make it happen! So we did.
This warming blend of goodness has beautiful ingredients set up to support your body on all dimensions. Ginger to warm, cinnamon to help reduce phlegm and inflammation and the spice of the moment turmeric, the wonder food that not only tackles inflammation because of it’s active ingredient curcumin (known for it’s ah-mazing antioxidant powers) but it’s a ripper to help lower your chances of heart disease, cancers, it is said to help prevent alzheimers and other painful conditions like arthritis. It’s also useful to assist in boosting your mood. So much to love!
The Golden Latte gets its name because of it’s wonderful rich colour provided by blending these delicious ingredients. You could of course modify it to suit your tastebuds or your pantry stocks! Just bring me one already, please?
Start by making a batch of your Spice Mix
– 1/4 cup ginger spice
– 1/4 cup cinnamon spice
– 1/2 cup tumeric spice
Mix all ingredients together and store in an air tight jar or container
To Make your Latte
1/2 teaspoon of your spice mix
1 1/2 teaspoon hot water
2 shots of espresso coffee (or dandelion instant tea)
1 tablespoon of honey
1 1/2 cups coconut milk
1. Get yourself a large mug and stir in your 1/2 teaspoon of golden spice blend with 1 1/2 teaspoon hot water. Let sit while you brew espresso shots.
2. Add espresso shots. Steam coconut milk until nice and frothy. Pour the coconut milk into your mug and stir in honey. Once stirred well, top with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
For those who do not own an espresso maker you can brew 1/2 cup coffee and then heat this along with your spice mix, coconut milk and honey in a saucepan. To get the frothy consistency you would get from steaming your milk you could whizz it in a blender before pouring in your mug. Once again, top with a sprinkling of cinnamon.
