Iced Turmeric Latte

Cool, refreshing, and slightly sweet, this anti-inflammatory Iced Turmeric Latte will become your go-to healthy summer drink.

Iced Turmeric Latte

I love turmeric lattes. When I started making them last fall, I quickly became obsessed. I normally drink them without coffee, but occasionally love the addition of espresso powder. Either way, THIS is my favorite recipe.

I crave the taste of turmeric lattes but now that it's warm outside, I don't want a hot drink. So I decided to make an Iced Turmeric Latte. Same ingredients, same nutrients, same great taste, but iced. Game changer.

I had one sip and I was hooked. Now all I want to do is spend a lazy Sunday afternoon outside drinking an Iced Turmeric Latte and reading a good book. Who's with me? Well, start by making this delicious drink.

How to make an Iced Turmeric Latte

Step 1. Start by boiling some water. Yes, boil -- you want the spices to blend together and infuse into the water. This creates optimal flavor. Don't worry though, we're going to let the water cool completely before we drink it -- this is an ICED Turmeric Latte after all.

Step 2. Add ground turmeric, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and black pepper to a glass. Pour the boiling water over the spices. Add about 1/2 cup or so of unsweetened almond milk.

Step 3. If you like your drinks sweet, now is the time to add a sweetener. I drink mine without additional sweetener, but you can feel free to add date syrup or your sweetener of choice. Make sure you add it while the water is warm or the sweetener will not dissolve.

Step 4. Now comes the hard part. Let the drink cool. Not hard physically, but hard psychologically. Don't be tempted to drink it or else you won't have any left when it's cold. Place the glass in the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 5. Once the drink is completely cool, grab a book, find the sun, and enjoy!

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
