This recipe came about because of the generous acts of two friends. One friend bought a big bag of turmeric last spring, which she shared with me. The other friend gave me an envelope of Latte 1 from The Golden Number. I love making lattes in the evening using almond milk but you can try my recipe with whatever kind of milk you enjoy.
I used teaspoons as my unit of measurement because I had only a small amount of ground ginger when I went to experiment. Use the unit that works for you!
1 tsp ground turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ground ginger
1/8 tsp salt
6 grinds of black pepper
Stir all ingredients together well. To make a latte, using an 8oz cup, stir together 1 tsp (or to taste) & a little bit of milk. Fill the cup to 8oz & heat in the microwave. If you don't use a microwave, heat
1 tsp & 8oz of milk in a small sauce pan. Add more sugar or honey to taste, plus a drop of vanilla if you like. I used liquid vanilla stevia.
Variation: I stirred 1/4 tsp of cocoa with the 1 tsp of mix when making my latte, plus a drop of vanilla stevia. It was good!
