Turmeric Latte

I absolutely love this turmeric honey latte for times when I need a cozy pick-me-up without the caffeine. I stir the vibrant ground turmeric and black pepper into the honey to create a kind of paste that dissolves much better in the hot milk with no clumping. You can serve this beverage hot or let it cool to room temperature before pouring over ice. And don't skip the black pepper! The black pepper contains properties that increase the bioavailability of the turmeric, meaning your body can absorb more of the turmeric and unlock it's healthful properties. 

Note: if you don't eat honey, you can swap in maple syrup or agave nectar, just reduce agave nectar quantity to 1- 1 1/2 teaspoons.
