    Move over coffee.

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Goodbye coffee, hello turmeric latte - Juice Daily

    Coconut milk/cream is approx 35% saturated fat, so this amazing concoction is made up of about 140 mls of saturated fat, a few spices and a teaspoon of sugar, very healthy!"

    "Turmeric is the ingredient on everyone’s lips. Cafes all over town are spicing up their menus with this golden ingredient… and for good reason. Not only does it add a richness of flavour, it also contains curcumin, a potent anti-inflammatory. This immune boosting latte can be whipped up in just minutes and will surely satisfy with every sip.



    Ingredients

    400 mls coconut milk/cream
    1 tsp turmeric
    1/2 nutmeg
    1 tsp cinnamon (or stick)
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1 tsp honey

    My wife would kill me if I brought her that instead of breakfast coffee. Almost worth it though :-)

    Weird isn't it...

    Turmeric has been around for centuries as a mainstay spice added to various Asian curry mixes. And now that someone mentions "a potent anti-inflammatory" to its description, it is now a must have Latte alternative...

    I'll be sticking to curries...

    I guess the margin in curries just isn't as good

    I'm having trouble getting 30ml in 30 seconds. How fine is everyone grinding their tumeric?

    Maybe that's the key. I'm having real trouble getting the honey through the grinder.

    Haha, reminds me of the constant "coffee is a superfood that adds decades to your lifespan"/"coffee is a poison that is slowly killing you" articles Yelta

    Actually the article says the results were inconclusive. So while it didn't prove its good, it didn't show that it's no good either. Another journalist trying to make a headline from a scientific study where there's nothing to see.
    Like anything I doubt it's a 'superfood' as I don't believe there's such a thing. More importantly, does it taste nice? I've hardly ever had the stuff I don't think, although I'm sure it's in the odd Asian dish I have.

    Also used a colouring agent in some products eg. The Natural Confectionary Co. snakes. Some folk don't notice. I find both the turmeric and paprika a slightly odd addition but don't mind it. The wife can't stand it - if it's not part of a curry :-)
