Golden latte

LEMONGRASS TURMERIC GINGER LATTE

Soothing and delicious Golden Latte

Golden milk owes its name to the bright yellow colour of curcumin, the bioactive compound in turmeric that has also a reputation as a silver bullet for a wide range of health issues.

In traditional chinese and ayurvedic medicine turmeric has been used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiseptic properties.

We are adding to this healthy beverage also a lemongrass for a zestier aroma which honestly makes it even more delicious.

With the cooler temperatures outside, there’s nothing better than a healthy, healing cup of Golden Milk to start your day or right before bed.

Ingredients: Makes one serving

·      250ml plant milk
·      1 tsp lemongrass CC Tea / 1 Tea bag
·      pinch ground turmeric
·      pinch ground ginger
·      pinch ground cinnamon
·      pinch cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a small saucepan.

Place over medium heat and whisk until hot to the touch but not boiling (it should take around 4 minutes.)

Remove from the heat and strain it to remove the tea leaves.

Adjust sweetness to your taste with a tsp of coconut sugar or honey and enjoy!

In case you dislike the taste of turmeric, don`t worry, it develops a nice warm taste in a plant milk.

·      250ml water

·     130g dark chocolate (vegan)
·     80ml coconut cream
·      tbsp of lemongrass CC Tea, boiled in coconut cream

Instructions:

Grease the bottom of a round cake pan with a removable bottom (20 cm in diameter) with oil or coconut fat and line it with baking paper.

Add flour, cocoa, baking soda, sugar and salt. Mix well all of the the ingredients and after make two smaller and one larger hole in the mixture.

In a small hole, add vinegar and crushed lemongrass, and in a larger one, oil. Add water and mix the ingredients quickly (hand whisk) to get a perfectly smooth dough without lumps.
