Vegan Frozen Turmeric Protein Latté
With only a few more weeks left of Summer, we wanted to provide you a frozen smoothie that is packed with nutrient-dense, anti-inflammatory ingredients like premium plant-based protein. and turmeric. Check out this quick, simple, pick-you-up recipe by the Culinary Witch that is packed with protein.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh turmeric (small root)
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 serving SANO vanilla plant-based protein powder
- 1/2 tablespoon organic honey
Pour the almond milk into a saucepan and add the grated turmeric, ginger and pepper. Let the almond milk simmer on low for 20 minutes to let the turmeric and ginger infuse.
Strain the turmeric almond milk into a large mason jar and add the honey and protein powder and mix well. Freeze for 6 hours/overnight.
Remove the the frozen almond turmeric latté from the freezer and defrost slightly in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours and break up the crystals with a spoon or–for a less labor intensive approach–purée the frozen latté with a hand-held immersion blender until a slushy consistency is achieved.
Drink for breakfast, before bed, or as a cooling anti-inflammatory drink on hot days!
