As we raise our cups in celebration of International Tea Day on May 21, why not join the festivities with a warm mug of Golden Turmeric Latte? Also known as ‘golden milk’, this drink derives its vibrant hue and distinctive earthy flavour from turmeric, a spice celebrated for its anti-inflammatory properties. The perfect turmeric latte is a harmonious blend of spices such as cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, complemented by creamy milk and a touch of sweetness which Salada Foods has combined in the Jamaica Mountain Peak Golden Turmeric Latte Pumpkin Spice.

Whether you prefer it as a soothing tea, a frothy latte topped with whipped cream, a smoothie, or even as a baked treat, there’s a recipe perfect for you.

RECIPES

1. Iced Golden Milk

Ingredients

2 cups of milk of choice (dairy or plant-based)

3 tablespoons maple syrup

2 sachets JMP Golden Turmeric Latte (Pumpkin Spice)

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pinch of black pepper

Directions

– Combine JMP Golden Turmeric Latte powder plus all ingredients in a cocktail shaker.

– Shake the mixture well and pour over ice into two serving glasses.

– Tip: To extract more anti-inflammatory properties from the JMP Golden Turmeric Latte, heat the mixture until warm and let cool naturally.

2. Golden Milk Cupcakes

Ingredients

160g (or 1 cup) unbleached cake flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon fine sea salt

2 sachets JMP Golden Turmeric Latte (Pumpkin Spice)

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

80g (or ½ cup) coconut oil (softened to room temperature)

180g (1½ cup) unpasteurised honey

1 large egg

90 ml (1/3 cup) coconut milk

1 pinch of black pepper

Directions

– Preheat the oven to 325 °F and line a regular cupcake tin with paper liners.

– Sift together all dry ingredients along with JMP Golden Turmeric Latte powder in a medium bowl and whisk lightly to combine.

– Add the coconut oil and honey to a large bowl and cream together using a hand mixer until fluffy, about three minutes.

– Add egg and vanilla, and beat until combined.

– While mixing on a low speed, add one third of dry ingredients to the wet mixture and mix until only a few streaks of flour remain. Pour in one-half of the coconut milk and mix to combine. Alternate steps until complete.

– Divide the batter evenly between the prepared lined cupcake tin and bake for 14-16 minutes.

– Allow the cakes to cool on a wire rack completely before adding any decorations. Pairs well with meringue buttercream or caramel sauce or can be topped simply with whipped cream and cinnamon sugar.

¼ cup white chia seeds

1 mango blended
