Sprout Turmeric Latte

Golden milk – Sprout style!

This simple recipe is an anti-inflammatory powerhouse of functional nutrition. It also happens to taste pretty awesome.

Warning! Making this recipe without turning something in your kitchen yellow is fairly impossible. However, not to worry, as the amounts stated make a good batch and will keep you going for a while. Pop your paste in the fridge and it will be good for a few weeks. It also freezes well too.

So here it is . . . . .

Our latest batch of turmeric latte paste. Organic and … orange!

Ingredients:

1 cup        Fresh organic turmeric root 
1/2 cup Fresh organic ginger root
1 tsp Freshly ground organic Black pepper
125ml Filtered water
125ml Organic, virgin coconut oil

To serve :

1 mugful   Plant milk of your choice (we like Rude Health almond or coconut drink).
Dash Meridian organic maple syrup (adjust amount to your taste)
sprinkle Organic cinnamon, ground
sprinkle Organic cardamom, ground

Directions:

Using disposable gloves (or being prepared to have bright yellow, turmeric stained hands for a day or so), peel the turmeric and ginger roots.

Blend in a high-speed blender (we use our Nutribullet, which is now permanently yellow – we keep one blender cup just for this purpose) with enough water to aid the blending (approximately 125ml) and form a smooth paste. You may need to blend in batches and give your machine an occasional rest to avoid overheating.

Add the paste to a small / medium stainless-steel saucepan, and heat very gently to warm the mixture slightly. The mixture should have the consistency of a thick soup. Next stir in the coconut oil, allowing it to gently melt and become thoroughly combined into the paste. 

Store the paste in a 500ml sterilized glass jar (we often reuse empty coconut oil jars), allowing them to cool fully before securing with the lids. Store in the fridge for up to 6 weeks. This mix can also be divided and frozen until required, up to 3 months. Be sure to cool the mix fully before freezing and leave some space at the top of the jar to allow for expansion (so your glass jar doesn’t break in the freezer).

To serve:  In your serving glass / mug, add a teaspoon of paste and a small drizzle of maple syrup to a little boiling water, stirring to form a thinner paste. Next add hot plant milk (not boiling) heated in a small pan on the hob or a milk steamer / frother if you have one.

At Sprout we also add a sprinkle of ground cinnamon to the initial paste and dust the top of the finished drink with ground cardamom and turmeric. These really wake the senses, as the turmeric is a vibrant yellow colour, and the cardamom has such a strong yet fragrant and uplifting aroma.

Barefoot Beach Club (BBC)

Back in August we thought it’d be a great idea to have a dip in the sea before work every Monday morning to wake us up and start the week with a laugh. 4 months later and the water is more lovely than ever!

Little Birdie Maps

Newquay-Sprout-Health-Food-Shop-Vitality-Gluten-Free-Vegan-Nutrition

This year a new lane in popped up in our old town of Newquay. Down this little lane you will find Sprout Health foods, just off the high street.

This lane was historically referred to as Crescent Lane, but only gained an official title earlier this year after an application was submitted by Claire and Sebastian.

Recently a road sign popped up (thanks Cornwall Council) and the name was listed on Louise Lane’s  beautiful Little Birdie Guide Map of Newquay (see extract above). Thanks Louise!!

The building- revitalised!

A new road name and postcode for Sprout!

Our lane is to be named Crescent Lane after Cornwall Council approved the name on 21st April 2016.

Prior to this the lane has never had an official name or been acknowledged by Cornwall Council or Royal Mail.

Thanks to Chris at Newquay Old Cornwall Society for finding a historic reference to The Old Printhouse on ‘Crescent Lane’, and Dave at Many Returns Surf Shop for reinforcing this.
