FINE AND DANDY
We love coffee as much as the next person, or probably a little bit more, if we’re being completely honest with you.
So when we discovered one of our favourite lattes had no caffeine in it, we were a little bit sceptical. Could a latte really be a latte without a shot of espresso? The answer is yes, and it’s sooo good that it’s not surprising that foodies worldwide (us included!) are flocking to cafes and health food stores to get their turmeric chai and dandy chai lattes!
Not only do these drinks make for the perfect Instagram photo (hehe), but they are chock-full of health benefits too. They don’t call turmeric chai lattes Gold Dust for no reason! Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and a powerful antioxidant that’s been proven to help indigestion and weight loss, fight colds and flus and reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
Lucky for you, you don’t have to go to a café to get a delicious turmeric latte. You can make them at home with Stay Golden and we promise you can still take an Instagram-worthy photo of your own creation! Angela and Nelson hand make their Stay Golden Turmeric Latte Chai (TLC for those in the know) blend in Sydney. They use all organic ingredients and it’s based on a healthy and eco-friendly ethos.
Along with the TLC, they have the yummiest Dandy Chai Latte, which is also organic and just plain dandy (haha sorry, we couldn’t help it).
For a homemade TLC, we add one teaspoon of the Stay Golden blend with a teaspoon of coconut oil to a little bit of hot water, which forms a paste. We then stir hot almond milk to ours but you could use any milk you like.
For a homemade dandy chai latte, we mix our chai with almond milk (again, you could use any milk you like) and warm it in a saucepan on the stove for a few minutes. This also tastes soooo good cold, so come summer, we bet you this is all we’ll be drinking!
You can also find our favourite Stay Golden products at the Boathouse locations in Sydney as well as select cafes and health food stores around the country. You'd better be quick though, because chances are we have already snapped up all the stock they have because we love it so much.
