A latté is known as the name of a drink made with milk, traditionally with a shot of espresso coffee and in Italy it is referred to as a milky coffee. But for those not wanting to endure caffeine and want to enjoy something healthier there is a range of Australian made, Vedic powders that deliver a 100% natural, vegan friendly, sugar & gluten free alternative;
Turmeric Powder (yellow), Beetroot Blend Velvet Powder (red), Matcha Powder (green).
Ayurvedic philosophy follows the ancient medicine of India, which uses authentic herbs and spices to cleanse the body, boost the immune system to help defend against disease and keep the mind, body and spirit calm and in balance.
These three Vedic powders follow age-old culture and each hold many individual unique health benefits which are easily found by adding ½ teaspoon in a cup mixed with your choice of milk. For best results, to make your alternative latté also dairy free try using almond, cashew, soy, macadamia or even coconut milk to get that latté effect. These alternative healthy lattés can be enjoyed day and night, hot or cold, adding powerful health benefits to your diet, rich in antioxidants and taste delicious too.
Turmeric ‘Golden Milk’ Latté
Turmeric is the no. 1 spice used in Ayurvedic kitchens and the main compound, curcumin not only gives turmeric the bright yellow colour but also has many scientifically proven health benefits, which may help:
- assist memory & brain function
- protect against heart disease & alzheimer’s
- improve symptoms of depression & arthritis
- reduce inflammation & joint pain
- lower blood sugar levels
- boost immune system
Turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory that has over 150 potentially therapeutic activities, including:
- antimicrobial & anti-cancer properties
Mix just ½ teaspoon with your favourite milk to create a healthy hit that works wonders for your body and is soothing for the soul, making you feel good. You can drink this latté hot or cold, and is referred to fondly as ‘Golden Milk’, a healing beverage.
By being made with high quality green tea leaves, Matcha is known as a superfood, containing a polyphenol called EGCG which has been shown in research to:
- boost metabolism
- slow or halt the growth of cancer cells
- burn calories
- naturally detoxifies
- calms the mind and relaxes the body

The health benefits of a matcha latté exceed those of green tea because when you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. Mix just ½ teaspoon with your choice of milk and you have a lime green explosion of antioxidant goodness.
