SPICE up Your Latte!
This Rooibos - Turmeric Latte has become my go-to afternoon drink on rainy PNW days. With a different composition of antioxidants than green tea and none of the caffeine, rooibos is a fantastic herbal tea option. We also now have some great research on the positive health benefits of turmeric and I love that I can get this into my normal dietary intake rather than as a supplement. For the milk portion, I have been using a blend of oat and hemp milks. The plain oat milk provides plenty of sweetness and the hemp milk provides a nice blend of unsaturated fats. By themselves, they don't work well for my tastes (the oat is too sweet and the hemp is not sweet enough), but together is pure latte synergy. Top with a dusting of your favorite spice compliment (cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger) and savour a cup of spicy bliss.
