Recipe Notes

  • Black pepper activates turmeric. Use a tiny pinch or peppercorns.
  • If using whole fresh ginger, fresh turmeric, or peppercorns, strain before drinking! 
  • For the frothed milk, I really love this milk frother. Do remember that dairy-free milk doesn't froth quite as well as regular milk!
