A few days ago I had a Turmeric latte in a cafe in Manchester, just after visiting the Lowry exhibition. I liked it a lot and I thought I should share a recipe for it, as I will definitely want to remember this for next winter. It is a very easy to make recipe and vegan. Turmeric latte originates in India, where is called haldi doodh, but I had no idea before I looked for recipes online.
Also, the turmeric latte I had last week was made with coconut milk. I had only soy milk, but I didn’t see any real difference. The taste of Turmeric and ginger are too strong for the flavour of the milk, so you might just use a cheaper version of vegan milk. Another thing I should mention is that some recipes ask for a pinch of black pepper, to give it an extra kick. I think I like it better without the pepper, hence I did not add it.
I’ve used cinnamon syrup to make this turmeric latte. If you don’t have cinnamon syrup, you can add half of teaspoon of cinnamon and sweeten it with golden syrup of maple syrup instead. The syrup I used is made by Sweet Freedom and I like it a lot, I have a few in my cupboards, as they are based on natural fruit extracts. This particular one, with cinnamon, is made with carob and apple. The chocolate ones are made with dates or other dried fruits.
Ingredients for 1 glass of Turmeric latte:
– 400ml soy milk
– 1/2 tsp Turmeric
– 1/4 tsp ginger
– 10g cinnamon syrup
Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and place it on the hob over medium heat. Bring it to boil. Now you can transfer it in a cute mug or glass and you can enjoy it.
Have you ever had Turmeric latte before? Do you like it with black pepper or not?
