It is always a good idea to insert your favourite drink in your diet plans every once in a while. That is why today, we will make a tasty Keto Turmeric Latte that will surely hook you and your non-keto friends.
This drink is quite different from your ordinary cup of latte. It has a more refined taste but using ordinary ingredients only. The base of our latte is the turmeric. Aside from the bright colour, it gives to the drink; it also has a wholesome nutrition profile that adds value to the latte.
Turmeric is rich in a substance called curcumin that serves as an antioxidant and an anti-inflammatory agent. Turmeric has also been known to fight against degenerative diseases in our brains and some heart risks as well. Some studies revealed that turmeric could help prevent cancer, and somehow cure cancer.
One more important component in the drink is coconut milk. Coconut milk helps in reducing cholesterol levels in the body and ulcer size. Other benefits of coconut milk include reducing inflammation as well. This liquid has also proven to be good for the skin and digestion. If you don’t like coconut milk, you an try other types of nut milk.
For the taste of the latte, we will use the whole cardamom as this has an equally wide range of benefits such as treating cold and normalizing menstrual and sleep cycle. We will also add some fresh ginger and chilli peppers to the mix to spice up the flavour.
Let’s Do It!
Add the coconut milk in a saucepan and heat. We use the light version of coconut milk. It’s not as thick and fatty as the cococnut milk that you normally use for cooking curry or other meat dish. This coconut milk for drinking has been diluted with water.
Pour the other ingredients into the pan.
Let it simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Strain the mixture and pour into your glass.
Best served with a pinch of cinnamon.
