Pumpkin Turmeric Latte

You might have seen “golden milk” or “turmeric latte” going around lately. This morning, this latte is replacing my coffee. But of course, since it’s pumpkin season, I’m adding pumpkin to my golden milk! Woot! Can you really blame me though? Everywhere you go, everything is pumpkinized. Pumpkin latte, pumpkin cheesecake, cookies, ice cream. Even pumpkin beer.

What’s so great about pumpkin though? Oops… I mean turmeric. ;)

Anti-inflammatories.
Great for your skin.
High in antioxidant.
Helps in cancer treatment.
Helps in weight-loss.
Boosts immune system.
Helps with depression.

So there you go!

This latte is super easy and warming. A perfect cuppa to sip on a cool fall day.

All you have to do is boil everything together, blend to make sure it’s smooth, sip, and go “ahhhh~”
