Today, as part of my 12 Days of Giving, I'm gifting you with anti-inflammation, an alternative to sugary hot chocolate, and some sweet, sweet relaxation.

This ginger & turmeric latte (modified from a Goop recipe) is dairy-free, caffeine-free, refined-sugar free... but not lacking in deliciousness!

Brew up a batch, turn off you screens and devices, curl up somewhere cozy, and take a deep, holiday breath. Doctor's orders.

Ginger & Turmeric Latte


  • 1 heaped teaspoon peeled and finely chopped fresh turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon peeled and roughly chopped ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • ground black pepper


  1. Combine turmeric, ginger, coconut sugar, coconut oil and a pinch of sea salt in a powerful blender.
  2. Heat almond milk in a small saucepan over medium heat until just simmering.
  3. Pour the hot almond milk into the blender and blitz everything until smooth and frothy. Pour into a glass and garnish with ground black pepper.
