She’s a magazine wellness columnist, yoga teacher, recipe creator, marathon runner and mum.* (*Listed in reverse order of importance). Rachel Grunwell of Inspiredhealth.co.nz definitely inspires us to make healthy choices, and one way we’re doing that this month is trying her flavoursome and colourful Turmeric Latte.
Here’s Rachel to explain a little more about why she loves it.
“Turmeric lattes are on the rise. They’re becoming the new go-to instead of coffee. Actually, a few different styles of lattes are popping up on menus. I was in Melbourne recently for a magazine travel writing assignment and I lunched at an amazing place that had lattes in these flavours: beetroot, mushroom, chai, cacao, apple pie and even carrot cake lattes!”
“This Turmeric Latte here though is king in my eyes because it has awesome anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. I love using True Honey Co. Manuka honey because it is delicious and of a high-quality. I dig too that it’s ethically harvested and this company cares about looking after its partners from the bees, to the people and even the land. I hope you enjoy this soothing and sweet offering too.”
Turmeric Latte – with Manuka Honey & Ginger
- 1 teaspoon True Honey Co. Manuka honey
- 1 teaspoon finely grated turmeric (or use turmeric powder instead if it’s at-hand)
- 1 teaspoon finely grated ginger (or use powder form if you wish)
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 cup cashew milk (make your own by blitzing 1/3 cup raw cashews in 1 cup filtered water)
- 1 twist black pepper
Place the honey, turmeric, ginger and coconut oil in a pan and heat gently. Then add the milk and pepper and warm on a stove top. Pour into a cup and sprinkle cinnamon on top. Next, drink, smile and savour…
