A caffeine-free latte to keep you warm this fall and winter
As a hot chocolate aficionado who no longer uses added sugar, cold winter days felt a bit more empty. Black coffee doesn’t always fill that snowy-morning-by-the-fire vibe — but Golden Root’s creamy, somewhat spicy, frothy blend of turmeric latte goodness hits the spot every time. With just the right amount of (coconut) milk, spice and warmth to keep one cozy, it finally feels like the yearn for cocoa will fade away.
Inspired by the centuries-old East Indian remedy called haldi doodh — Hindi for turmeric milk — this Denver-based company’s founder Andrea lovingly handcrafted this vegan turmeric latte. According to Golden Root’s website, the original homemade remedy was often used to combat inflammation, common colds and used as a digestive aid. Golden Root has made convenient, powdered versions that are perfectly suited to our busy, on-the-go lifestyles. The latte itself blends sweet and savory spices that, according to Andrea, create a soothing and rejuvenating caffeine-free beverage. Definitely worth a try.
Andrea, Golden Root’s Founder
Golden Root was born out of a curiosity to reduce inflammation in my own body by using turmeric in anything and everything … I wanted to create a powdered version of [a traditional turmeric drink] so that I could conveniently make it at home or on-the-go and share it with others … I finally found a recipe that I loved … I hope you love it [too].
Get yours slightly sweetened or sugar-free — and you can buy them in bulk. Opt for individual sachets in bunches of six, 12 or 30; or, get a 30-serving stand-up pouch.
