Warm your soul. Boost your immunity. Heal your gut. Balance your hormones. The list goes on and on for the many benefits of the hearty spice turmeric. In the ancient Indian system of holistic medicine known as "Ayuerveda" this spice is used for it's healing properties and a method of treating many diseases, including cancer. Turmeric has extreme anti-inflammatory properties and can aid in many ailments from digestive issues to joint pain.
However, for as healing as it is, it does not have the most pleasant taste on it's own and is very messy as the yellow color can stain hands. In this recipe, you will make a larger quantity of paste to keep in the fridge. That makes it easier to use for each latte you make so you have less clean-up and is available on demand.
I like to sip on this sweet goodness in the afternoon to cure my sweet tooth and give me a little pick me up. Add a touch of cayenne for a detox benefit.
