Benefits of Consuming Turmeric 

What is Turmeric? 

Anne Pesek Taylor, RDN, CD, a University of Utah Health registered dietician nutritionist explains: “Turmeric is a bright yellow spice that is typically used for flavor and color in Asian cuisine. It has an earthy aroma, and its flavor profile is slightly peppery and bitter, with a subtle ginger taste. Turmeric contains three naturally occurring phytochemicals called curcuminoids, the most notable and researched of which is curcumin.” Information retrieved from University of Utah Health "BENEFITS OF TURMERIC" article, Feb 05 2020.

What are the Benefits of Turmeric?

According to Taylor “Researchers have found that phytochemicals from natural foods, such as the curcumin found in turmeric, may be a safe and effective way to help reduce inflammation and prevent and treat disease. While acute inflammatory responses are beneficial for the body in that they help heal injury, irritation, or infection, we know that chronic inflammation can contribute to disease onset. There is promising research to support curcumin’s use for the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects on obesity, to reduce arthritis pain and swelling, and to aid in complications such as diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, and cardiomyopathy.” -  Information retrieved from University of Utah Health "BENEFITS OF TURMERIC" article, Feb 05 2020.

Turmeric Latte Recipe

Prep Time 10 min 
Cook Time 5 min
Total Time 15 to 20 min

Ingredients for the Turmeric Latte:

  • Black tea bags

  • Water

  • Oat milk

  • Ginger powder

  • Turmeric powder

  • Cinnamon powder

  • Cardamom powder

  • Maple syrup or stevia drops


Ingredients notes from Gunjan:

  • Tea bags – I specifically like wagh bakri which is easily available in Indian store. However, any black tea bag works in this recipe. The flavor of tea enhances this beverage making it a great caffein substitute with the same satisfaction.

  • Oat milk – I like oat milk in this recipe because of its sweet flavor and creamy texture. Moreover, it’s a smoother dairy free milk comparatively and works great in this recipe.

  • Ginger powder – usually, my morning chai is always infused with ginger so grated fresh ginger also works in this recipe but you may want to strain it before pouring in the brewed tea. Therefore, for convenience I used ginger powder.

  • Turmeric powder – as we all know it has medicinal healing properties with lot of health benefits. You may use fresh root turmeric in a grated form but it's important to strain it while pouring the milk into the brewed tea. Therefore, I used turmeric powder for convenience.

  • Cinnamon powder – this gives a nice flavor to the turmeric latte. It is very similar to Masala Chai.

  • Cardamom powder – It gives a hint of sweetness to this beverage along with a nice flavorful aroma.

  • Maple syrup – you can use the sweetener of your choice and quantities vary per taste. For us, maple syrup is our favorite.

Turmeric Latte Recipe

How to make Turmeric Latte?

  1. First, I placed the tea bags in the serving cups and poured boiling water in each cup. Then, I let it brew nicely.

  2. Secondly, in a saucepan, I combined oat milk, ginger powder, turmeric powder, cinnamon and cardamom and stirred them nicely. I constantly stirred the mix so that the milk does not stick at the bottom until the first boil.

  3. Next, I add the maple syrup while stirring. Then turned off the flame.

  4. Thereafter, I poured the milk equally in the two cups and discarded the tea bags.

  5. Lastly, I frothed them with the Zulay Kitchen milk frother and served immediately.

Expert tips from Gunjan to make the perfect Turmeric Latte:

  • Make sure that water is boiled and not just hot. You may boil it in a water kettle or over the stove.

  • After combining water and tea bag, make sure to let it brew for at least 5 minutes. In the meantime, you may start preparing the golden milk.

  • When using the milk frother, fill ¾ of the cup because the milk grows a lot. 

  • Most importantly, remove the tea bags before frothing or blending.
