Turmeric has been used for centuries in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine; it is one of the key ingredients in curry powder. It is a flowering plant in the ginger family and comes from the root of Curcuma longa.

Turmeric is known for its proven health benefits, such as the potential to improve heart health and even prevent Alzheimer's and cancer. Only one tablespoon of ground turmeric contains almost 1 gram of protein and two grams of dietary fiber. It is also a great source of potassium, Vitamin C, and iron.

Plus, its earthy, peppery flavor makes it the perfect addition to all sorts of recipes. Turmeric spice works especially well with root vegetables, winter squash, poultry, beef, or lamb in savory dishes. Its earthy peppery flavor is perfect for both white rice and cauliflower rice. Turmeric is just as good in desserts combined with citrusy or tropical flavors like banana and mango.

What Is the Best Way to Take Turmeric

Today, we will dedicate some time to all the delicious beverages you can make using turmeric, and for a reason. If you want to enjoy both the flavor and the health benefits of this magical spice, the best way to consume turmeric is with a drink. This way, our body can absorb all the nutrients easily and quickly reap the benefits of this delicious superfood.

What Is Better: Fresh or Ground Turmeric

There are several options for cooking with turmeric - fresh turmeric and ground turmeric spice being two of the most popular. Both will provide health benefits, but they are slightly different in the flavor profile.

Fresh turmeric root looks very similar to its cousin ginger. It is pleasantly fragrant and has a fresh earthy, peppery taste with a spicy punch. It’s best for healthy smoothies, mocktails, and tea.

Dried ground turmeric still has all the nutrients and a warm spicy flavor, but is slightly less intense. It is perfect for savory dishes, latte drinks, and homemade seasoning blends.

If you can’t find fresh turmeric, just substitute it with ground turmeric seasoning - one inch of fresh turmeric equals one teaspoon of ground turmeric.

So don't wait any longer and start enjoying one of the trendiest ingredients of 2022 daily. From three delicious versions of turmeric ginger latte and tea to turmeric smoothies and more, there are endless possibilities for adding this fantastic spice to your drinks.

This latte is a quick and delicious way to get your daily dose of turmeric. You don’t need any fancy kitchen appliance to make it either - just some high-quality ingredients and a mason jar. It’s slightly spicy because of fresh ginger and just the right level of sweet, thanks to honey and almond milk.

The perfect combination of spicy and sweet - this refreshing latte is made with full-fat coconut milk, freshly ground turmeric, and ginger. It’s an excellent healthy drink to enjoy on a warm day.
