Pumpkin Spice Turmeric Latte

Fall in love with this seasonal yummy powerful drink.

Looking for a healthy replacement for your favorite java spot’s latte? With pumpkin and turmeric, this antioxidant-rich drink is grounding, balancing, and a great pick-me-up for cold, fall mornings. Get yourself in the pumpkin spirit while also obtaining key nutrients like vitamins A and C and potassium.


The Power of Turmeric in a Hot Drink

Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a relative of ginger and an absolute powerhouse when it comes to health. Turmeric contains a potent antioxidant called curcumin. Not only does curcumin give turmeric (and a turmeric latte) its bright color, it’s also one of the reasons why turmeric is such a healthy spice.


By consuming a turmeric latte on a regular basis, you can reap the many health benefits of turmeric. According to scientific research, turmeric may help the following health concerns:

  • Bacterial infections

  • Cancer (including breast, colon, prostate, and skin cancer)

  • Eye inflammation (such as uveitis)

  • Heart disease

  • Indigestion

  • Neurodegenerative conditions (including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis)

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Stomach ulcers

  • Ulcerative colitis

  • Viral infections

I love this new addition to my daily drink menu.



Healthy Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plant-based milk of your choice

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric

  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice

  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin puree

  • 1 cup hot water

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Blend all ingredients except water in high-speed blender.

Enjoy!
