My electrophysiologist told me to eat more anti-inflammatory foods to help my heart problem. He recommended turmeric, ginger, and green tea (among others).

This past week I’ve been drinking a cup of green tea and a turmeric latte daily.

I was unhappy with the turmeric latte recipes I found, so I made my own. This recipe is quick, simple, cheap, and delicious. (Don’t worry: it doesn’t taste like curry.)

I use fresh local honey as a sweetener. I buy turmeric in bulk anyway. I am partial to this brand of turmeric. And this brand of ginger.

I currently use soy milk because that’s what I have in the house, but it’s delicious with Oatly oat milk.
