One of my favourite foodie places in Whistler is Olives market in Function, and this recipe is inspired by them.
I also don't drink coffee for digestive reasons, and so I am always looking for a Latte alternative - Rooibos lattes are great and now this one will be another staple.
More about the ingredients: Tumeric has anti-inflammatory properties, e.g. good for any kind of inflammation or bloating related to digestion. Pepper is known to help with the absorption on turmeric.
Ceylon Cinnamon is a thermogenic food, which may help increase metabolism and calorie burning by enhancing thermogenesis - a process in which the body burns calories to utilize the foods just eaten - converting calories to heat.
So lots of goodness in this Latte. Enjoy!
Cup of almond milk
Tbsp of turmeric
Tbsp of Ceylon cinnamon
Dash of pepper
Dash of bee pollen or organic creamy honey
1. Place all Ingredients in pot and whisk until reaching desired temperature.
Note: I used a Nespresso milk frother, which also works wonders.
