Turmeric Latte w Ashwaghanda
Whilst adaptogenic herbs (such as ashwaghanda below) have been apart of my life for years now, I have really been focussing on being more consistent by using them almost daily. And holy heck, I am feeling the difference. This latte is the combination of being incredibly anti-inflammatory through the use of turmeric, regulates your blood sugar levels with the cinnamon whilst making you feel grounded, and creates an addictive calming, peaceful sensation with the ashwaghanda.
Although this seems like a monotonous old hawt bevy.. it’s rather relevant to how I’m feeling and what I want to share at the moment, just in case it helps you too. I’ve been one seriously busy woman with client after client, study, exams, work and life, but I’ve never felt so insanely calm, happy, content, and energised all in one.. like a ‘blissed out’ kinda feeling and I’m seriously so excited about it. You can achieve this if you give your body the tools and time to heal from the inside. As I was running on the beach this afternoon to simply burn off way too much bloody energy, I couldn’t help feel realllll grateful to how effing good the feeling was, and whilst this may not be always, it’s much more often then not.
So, if you are like I was for a chunk of my life feeling overstimulated, overwhelmed, your mind won’t calm down, you are struggling to breath from your belly, your shoulders are constantly lifted, combined with being absolutely exhausted, try incorporating some medicinal herbs like lemon balm and ashwaghanda as a first step (or missing critical step) to get you through, because these have become real good mates of mine. You don’t need to have them in a fancy latte, just use companies like @sunpotion or @naturessunshine_au and shot them in water or take them in pure capsule form.
1 tsp organic turmeric
1 tsp ashwaghanda (enter JWZ345 for 5% off if you like!)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup coconut milk (I like the Ayam brand, which I use the cream and add some water to make milk)
1/4 cup water with optional 2 tsp gelatin soaked within this
Sweetness to taste. I use liquid stevia or Lakanto, though you may use honey or maple syrup.
1. Heat all ingredients in a saucepan on low to medium heat.
2. Leave as is, or to make it frothy and creamy, blend in your blender for 30 seconds to a minute.
3. Serve immediately and enjoy every sip!
