How about a Turmeric Latte For a Health Kick?

Turmeric has become very popular as a healthy addition to our diet due to the phytochemical curcumin that prevents and neutralises free radicals and reduces inflammation in the body. 

Turmeric has antibiotic, anticancer, anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to protect the liver against toxins, help with circulation and lower cholesterol levels. Unfortunately curcumin is not easy for the body to absorb, so a great way to enjoy it, is in small quantities, using good-quality ground turmeric. 

We can add turmeric to many recipes, but I wanted to share a recipe for the Turmeric Latte, a super healthy alternative to what you might pick up in the coffee shop!
