The hot drink is made of steamed milk blended with turmeric and poured over espresso, leading to a golden color that will play well to both latte art and Instagram images.
Turmeric is incredibly on trend of late, but it dates back to ancient times for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It’s also a very popular ingredient in Middle Eastern and Asian cuisines. It’s even said to potentially have some cancer-fighting benefits, but that has yet to be proven — still, if we can do our part by having a latte, we’re all about it.
The new latte with turmeric is available in almost 200 stores across greater London starting this week for £2.65 for a short. Maybe we’ll get lucky and it’ll do so well in the U.K., it’ll come to America.
We’re crossing our fingers. But in the meantime, if you can’t fly to London and can’t wait for these tasty lattes to come to America, we have a delicious recipe for warm turmeric milk that is to die for.
