What can a little sunshine do? A-latte.
Terrible puns aside, this summery sipper is a sweet coffee break. Our Sunshine Latte uses turmeric as its staple ingredient, which makes for a bold flavor and an even bolder colour.
Turmeric – an herb in the ginger family – is a natural anti-inflammatory. It has been proven to fight cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. One study even used turmeric as an anti-depressant. Clearly, this powerful herb has a lot to offer.
When mixed with cinnamon and maple, turmeric provides just the right amount of punch to level out the sweetness. Simply stir the ingredients into your hot almond milk and get sippin’. For an extra hot day, try pouring the latte over ice for a refreshing pick-me-up!
