Turmeric lattes have become my new morning tradition. This frothy, vibrant latte is not only beautiful, it also provides an instant nutrition boost. Turmeric has tons of health benefits, including the ability to improve mood and reduce inflammation. This spice also has wonderful antioxidant properties.
Curcumin, the active beneficial compound in turmeric, is what provides turmeric’s healing and health-boosting benefits. Unfortunately, these compounds, although powerful, aren’t extremely bioavailable. The bioavailability of the curcuminoids can be increased with the addition of black pepper.
This latte is simple, delicious and takes less time to make than a cup of coffee!
