This WFH business has my Tassimo (I use the Suny*) pumping out soya vanilla latte’s like nobodies business. Not to blow my own coffee trumpet or anything but… I worked at Home Sweet Home, a Manchester-based brunch cafe during my final year of uni, so my froth:coffee:syrup ratios have been honed and perfected to the upmost degree.
Coffee is cool. I love it so much I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to it. Its billowing clouds of frothy milk envelop your tongue gently. Its intense aroma strikes the nose square on, unfamiliar yet a comforting embrace every time. Coffee is amazing… Can you feel my hands jittering and my teeth jarring as I write this?
Although this liquid ambrosia is delightful, apparently there is only so much coffee one can have in a day? So, if you are pumping yourself silly with caffeine at the moment, then a Turmeric Latte could be your oasis of respite.
Creamy and soft with a distinct flavour, turmeric lattes always make me screech for more. I have been banging on about them forever, my boyfriend is sick to death.
My tried and tested go-to recipe is vegan friendly, but you can always substitute out my oat milk for an animal variety, or syrup for honey if you wanted a more natural sweet hit. Raid your spice cupboard and prepare to be in luuuuuv.
Nutty Golden Tumeric Latte Recipe
- 200ml Moma Oat Milk
- 1 teaspoon of strong nut butter (I use Meridian Crunchy Peanut Butter)
- 1 to 2 teaspoons of Maple / Carob Fruit Syrup (I use Clarks)
- 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of turmeric (depending on strength)
- 0.5 to 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
- Pinch of cinnamon
- On low heat, glug milk and syrup into a saucepan. If you add too much syrup at this stage, do not worry! The earthy tones of the turmeric powder should balance it out.
- Add your nut butter, cinnamon pinch and ground ginger. A good trick is to go light on the ginger first, then add more if desired. You can always keep sprinkling in, you cannot sprinkle out!
- Add your turmeric and stir down. You want all flavours to combine and create a soft texture with a golden appearance. Add greater quantities if you desire.
- Once hot, transfer contents of your hot milky concoction into a blender. Pulse – or whisk on a low setting – to create that frothy latte texture. Pour gently into a mug; sip and enjoy.
