‘Fortifying food with nutritious ingredients is something I focus on during our daily tv show. I have been using fresh turmeric root nearly everyday in one way or another for the last 2 years and as winter approaches there is nothing more welcoming than my golden lattes. For an extra boost and variety of flavours, chopped fresh fruit is added to the milk as it heats up and to lightly poach it. Today’s golden latte is fortified with maca powder.’
You will need:
1 fresh turmeric root
4 cups milk (coconut milk, almond milk or you can use regular milk if it is your preference)
1 tablespoon agave
1/2 cup organic lemon ginger tea (from infusion of 2 teabags)
2 apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 teaspoon maca powder
Place the milk, grated turmeric root, vanilla, sliced apples and lemon ginger tea infusion in a sauce pan and bring to boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Add the agave and the maca powder. Blend until frothy using a liquidizer or nutribullet.
Serve and enjoy !
