Welcome to Well Done, Well+Good’s seriously tasty food (and drink!) video series, featuring easy-healthy-gorgeous recipes from the wellness scene’s buzziest chefs, nutritionists, and Instagram foodies.
It’s taken over your Facebook news feed, the natural beauty scene, and seemingly every superfood-centric recipe these days. What are we talking about? Turmeric, of course.
And one of the trendiest ways everyone’s getting more of the anti-inflammatory spice in their life is via a turmeric-spiked Golden Milk Latte.
Here’s how to make the delicious hot drink with Bond&Taylor‘s super-cool chef Alexis Bondaroff, who recommends you use creamy cashew milk for ridiculously tasty results. (This video shows you how to make your own cashew milk in the time it takes to make a smoothie.)
“Cashew milk is thicker, so when you’re doing a latte, it makes a more substantial hot beverage,” Bondaroff explains. “It’s also such an easy thing to make, and you can’t even compare it to store bought, flavor-wise.”
While a Golden Milk Latte doesn’t require a shot of espresso, and makes a great option for those looking to kick coffee, you could absolutely add one for a healthier, next-level latte.
Watch the video—and scroll down for the full (super easy) turmeric Golden Milk Latte recipe.
