Here is a little bit about turmeric from Leora: Turmeric (or Curcuma longa) is not new on the scene; it’s been a staple in Indian cuisines for centuries, usually prepared with fats and other spices that work synergistically to enhance flavors. With a long list of scientifically-supported benefits, its recent popularity is well-deserved. Turmeric contains powerful substances called curcuminoids, the most important of which is curcumin. When it comes to turmeric, I regularly include the spice with meals, sprinkling it over my eggs in the morning, or combining it with other spices for added synergy. But one of my favorite ways to enjoy turmeric is to drink it!
And here is Leora’s Pumpkin Turmeric Spice Latte Recipe:
Start by warming up the coconut milk on your stovetop, hot but not boiling. The fat content in the coconut milk helps to enhance the absorption of the turmeric (i.e. bioavailability!). Add in the remainder of the ingredients and blend. Enjoy!
1 cup Coconut Milk*
1 tbsp Pumpkin Puree*
½ tsp Turmeric Spice*
½ tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice Blend* or Cinnamon*
½ tsp Honey* (optional – for sweetening, but usually not needed)
1 scoop Collagen (optional – excellent source of protein)
*Organic if possible
*Cinnamon for topping
