Foodie Fave: Turmeric & Almond Milk Latte

Yeah, yeah, I know we’ve been giving you a lot of drinks lately, but lesbehonest. There’s always room for drinks. And with fall right around the corner (although it may not feeeel like it) you need a couple of cozy drink options.

For a little while now, I’ve been a fan of turmeric and its super powers. So, I’m really excited to see it popping up in so many recipes. Especially a creamy latte such as this from Figs and Pigs. When the fall weather finally comes, grab your knit sweaters and biggest mug and settle in with this super easy recipe. (And obvi throw in an Instagram shoot bc you’ll have everything for the perfect photo. #fall)

  • 2 1/2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1″ grated ginger
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

In a pan on a medium heat add all the ingredients. For the ginger, squeeze the grated pulp so just the juice is used in the latte. Discard the pulp. Heat until just before boiling whisking all the while for about 6 mins. Serve immediately.

  • 3 mashed bananas (the more ripe the better)
  • 1 cup vanilla Almond milk (but really any milk would work)
  • 2 eggs (might test run with applesauce to make it vegan as well, but we will see how much free time I have in the next few weeks).
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 cups or 240 grams oatmeal
  • Optional, but I sprinkled with a little cinnamon (1/2 tsp.) on top before baking.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix and pour in pre greased muffins tins, bake for about 12 minutes. I mean really just eyeball it when the tops look golden brown, when the fork test passes, you are done. Jess is the baker here, I just straight up wing this kinda stuff. Although my love for food shines through with some of my, toss in suggestions: dark chocolate chips, blueberries, walnuts, etc. SALIVATING, you don’t even know.

Happy Eating, XO.
