Iced Dairy-Free Golden Turmeric Latte

Also known as golden milk, this deliciously spicy golden latte (which is actually coffee-free) gets its color from turmeric, an ancient spice with major health benefits ranging from anti-inflammatory to digestive, immune and brain health.

Turmeric is traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicine, and it’s benefits are attributed to compounds within known collectively as curcuminoids. Curcumin is the most important curcuminoid and it is typically poorly absorbed by the digestive system unless it’s consumed with piperine (found in black pepper) or dietary fats–both of which are included in our iced rendition of this recipe.

Most dairy-free versions of golden milk have little to no protein, which can mean blood sugar spikes and resulting fatigue for many. By adding just a tablespoon or two of vanilla rice (or pea) protein you can add up to 11g of plant protein and keep your blood sugar stabilized (which means no afternoon crash!).
