Have You Tried a Turmeric Latte?
Forget chai — there are far more unusual alternatives to coffee these days
1. Also known as haldi doodh or golden milk in India and favoured by Goop queen Gwyneth Paltrow, turmeric lattes are quickly becoming a new health fad with a host of purported benefits. You can find them at Mondays in Kingsland and The Raw Kitchen in Ponsonby.
2. If you really want to be original with your hot beverages, try a beetroot latte from Greenleaf Organics in Kingsland, which boasts many of the benefits associated with the earthy vegetable.
3. Matcha has been on the scene for a while, so you’re more likely to find it at your local cafe. It’s specially-grown green tea ground into powder, so does contain caffeine, and is often mixed into warm milk.
