This recipe for matcha golden turmeric latter provides a double boost of healthiness, using both matcha green tea and turmeric.
Turmeric, a golden spice traditionally only seen in Indian curries. Turmeric is being revamped in the form of golden turmeric lattes and as a delicious aromatic tea that is sweeping the globe too.Turmeric is a great addition to your diet as it contains lots of antioxidants and is also great for fighting inflammation. Studies have also found that turmeric’s active ingredient, curcumin helps to prevent Alzheimer’s by reducing inflammation in the brain.
I particularly like this matcha golden turmeric version as it combination with matcha. Matcha is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg, boosts metabolism and burns calories, detoxifies effectively and naturally and is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins. It provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium and lowers cholesterol and blood sugar.
I love the taste of matcha having lived in Japan and can drink it one it’s own. But I’m very aware the taste is not for everyone so combining it with a golden turmeric latte and making it into a matcha golden turmeric latte, is truly the best of both worlds.
Try switching out one of your daily coffee’s for this latte as an added extra boost to your health. This recipe contains black pepper which helps the body to absorb the antioxidants in the turmeric. It is also the perfect drink to soothe a cold and to give you a boost of energy!
