And how do you make your delicious Organic Turmeric Chai Latte I hear?…..

I totally understand that there are so many Turmeric Lattes out there in the market place, so why do people constantly tell us that ours is soooo delicious and yummy…I don’t know..lol

Is it my special blend..is it the beautiful organic spices, is the secret utensils I use or maybe that extra splash of LOVE we add to the final mix? I am not sure but I am always and humbled and really appreciate when people take time out of their day to  come up to us at the markets or any of the Expos we do and say what a delicious drink we have prepared.

I am truely chuffed when you do take the time out of your day to come and tell us about our little cup of goodness, it really makes getting up at the crack of dawn and getting out of bed on the weekends alot easier. Well not in the middle of the Canberra winter…who wants to do anything at – 8 on a Saturday morning, that morning will stay with me for ever. I stayed huddled over my hot urn of Organic Turmeric Chai latte until my fingers warmed….it helped a little.

Gift of Our Earth has two Organic Turmeric products. I created the first as a savoury drink and then as winter drew closer I created the Organic Chai Turmeric for a little added warmth in the colder months.

I thought I would share with you today  how we make our super special Organic Turmeric Chai Latte.

If you have purchased a 70g packet there are approximately 20 serves per packet. I suggest using 1/2 to a 1 teaspoon of powder but the more the merrier, if you like the taste of turmeric?

Then on the stove add 1/2 cup of Organic Almond/Coconut blend and 1/2 a cup of Organic Rice milk.  Heat the milk up to the desired temperature and add a splash of organic maple syrup if you would like,this is only optional, the blend is naturally sweetie with the spices I have used.

Let me know if you enjoy our delicious drink’s…… that are always served with an extra splash of LOVE.

Turmeric latte..delicous or not

On one of my latest trips to Queensland, whilst being out and about I was delighted to see the amount of Turmeric Lattes now available at Cafes dotted around Broadbeach. Have you tried one?

Made properly it is such a delicous, nutritious and healthy drink…..a fabulous alternative to drinking coffee. Now, Im not saying to give up your morning coffee, even though I rarely drink coffee, it was suggested to me that it is not good for my leaky gut or my adrenal fatigue. Im always on the look out for other alternative hot drinks you can have when you are out and about or being social with friends.

Some of my favourite drinks would have to be dandelion tea, have you tried it? It is quiet bitter but fabulous for the liver and such a great substitute for coffee. If you are using the tea bags it is so strong that I usually get two cups out of the one bag!

Topped with some freshly made almond milk or a blend of coconut and almond, it is just heaven.

Back to the turmeric…I have created a fabulous blend, all organic, to the best of my knowledge. Including turmeric, ginger, cardamom, caynne pepper, cinnamon and of course the all important black pepper.

Turmeric powder has so many amazing properties it contains antioxidants and is anti- inflammatory compounds which are perfect for your body.The reason we add freshly ground black pepper is so that it can help enhance the absorption of the curcumin into the body, curcumin is the naturally occurring compound in the turmericIMG_20170520_181606_139 that helps ease symptoms of inflamation. Turmeric is also well know to treat emotional issues such as depression and anxiety, it appears to elevate neurotransmitters such as serotonin and may also lower the stress hormone cortisol.

If IMG_20170320_192802_788you need to add a little bit of sweetness you can always add, stevia,maple syrup, honey. I find that if the Turmeric blend is balanced right with the amount of turmeric,pepper and cinnamon, then you may not need to add a sweetener. Also another trick is to add the richness of coconut cream to the almond milk  or you can actually purchase from one of the super markets a blend of the two already made up. One of the main reasons for adding the coconut milk to the latte is for the fat in the coconut milk.  It helps your body absorb the turmeric and the other benefit is the natural sweetness and pure deliciousness  of the coconut milk, it is a wonderful balance.
