Iced Turmeric (Golden Milk) Latte

For a taste as fresh as a sunny day in springtime, this should be your go-to glass! It’s beautiful to look at, but the magic really happens when this rejuvenating elixir hits your tongue. We’ve used traditional warm weather seasonings like cinnamon and ginger, but, served on ice, this drink is totally chill. Make a pitcher for the patio and drink in the sunshine!

CHEF'S TIP

* If you can’t find fresh turmeric you can use 1 tsp (3 g) of powdered turmeric in its place

* Regular dairy milk can be used in place of almond milk

* To split a vanilla bean use a paring knife and make a vertical split, being careful not to go all the way through the bean, down the entire length of the middle of the bean. Gently open up like a book. If you can’t find a vanilla bean use 1 tsp (5 ml) of vanilla extract in its place
