SOME NOTES ABOUT INGREDIENTS

Turmeric.
I added turmeric to this healthy PSL because of it’s anti-inflammatory properties (and festive color!). Turmeric contains curcumin, a polyphenol that lowers the level of messaging molecules that trigger inflammation. Turmeric is also a liver cleanser so it’s detoxifying too!

Add a pinch of black pepper to the PSL to boost the bioavailability of turmeric. Black pepper increases the absorption of curcumin (the good stuff!) in your blood.

Pumpkin Pie Spice. Because #lazyhealthy is a thing, I prefer to use a spice mix instead of measuring out spices individually. You can find pumpkin pie spice at Trader Joe’s or my favorite organic one here.

Dairy-Free Milk. I use unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk for this PSL. For an extra creamy treat, stir in some full-fat coconut milk or top the latte with a little coconut whipped cream.
