This creamy-dreamy iced latte is infused with rich avocado honey, rose petals, and sharp cracked black pepper to unlock the nutritional benefits of turmeric. The amount of honey used might seem extreme, but this honey offers antioxidants and polyphenols (which are good for fighting inflammation) and has a more complex flavor profile than your average acaica or wildflower varieties. Serve chilled over ice or gently warmed in your favorite latte bowl or mug.
3 cups unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup avocado honey (I used Honey Pacifica brand)
2 tablespoons Ground turmeric
2 tablespoons dried rose petals
Gently warm the almond milk with the rose petals, avocado honey, and a few grinds of freshly cracked black pepper. The goal here is to heat the mixture only enough to melt the honey, dissolve the turmeric, and steep the rose petals and black pepper). Once warmed, add the turmeric and stir well to combine. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to steep for about 10 minutes, then strain to remove the rose petals.
Serve immediately for a warm, cozy drink or chill and serve over ice for a vibrant, refreshing afternoon pick-me-up. Regardless if you prefer to drink it warm or cold, serve with a bit more freshly cracked black pepper.
