Milk: The type of milk will affect the taste and texture. For instance, coconut milk will make your latte creamier, but also add a coconut flavour. Almond and Oat Milk have a neutral flavour.
- Make it frothy: To make it frothy, use a milk frother or a blender. Note that turmeric will easily stain your blender so be sure to rinse it with soap and warm water right after using.
- Iced turmeric latte: Enjoy it iced by pouring it over a cup of ice, especially during the warmer months.
- Store for later: Pour into an air-tight glass jar and store in the fridge for a day.
