Looking at the list of ingredients, you’ll understand why chai tea, with its cloves, cinnamon and black pepper, is so good for you; this latte is reminiscent of that aromatic beverage without tasting like chai. It’s one of the most soothing, comforting drinks you’ll have, and a perfect sipper to help you relax after a busy day. For a summertime variation, this is also lovely served cold over ice.
1 cup (240 ml) unsweetened alternative milk of choice, plus additional if desired
1 cup (240 ml) water
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) ground turmeric
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) cinnamon
1 tsp (5 ml) grated fresh ginger
1/4 tsp (1 ml) dried rosemary (10-15 sprigs, crushed slightly, or pinch of ground rosemary)
pinch cayenne (optional)
In a medium post, whisk together the one cup (240 ml) milk, water, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, rosemary and cayenne, if using. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then immediately turn down heat and allow to simmer 5 minutes. Strain into a large mug and top up with additional water, if desired. Makes one large or two snack servings.
