It’s no secret that turmeric is still a rising trend in the food world. Dairy-free golden milk lattes are now something you might come across at your local grocery store. If you live in the U.K., Starbucks recently debuted a turmeric latte that can be made vegan with coconut, soy, or almond milk. In the U.S., Pret a Manger just introduced turmeric lattes made with almond milk as part of their new fall lineup, so you don’t even have to go the extra step of asking for your server to make it dairy-free. Whoo!
Why has turmeric gained such a huge following lately? It might have to do with the fact that this little root packs quite a powerful punch when it comes to your health. It’s known to have powerful anti-inflammatory benefits that make it a good supplement for those who suffer from joint pain. On top of that, studies have shown that it may be effective in treating cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease. We highly recommend that you start adding turmeric into your diet regularly if you haven’t already. If you’re looking for an easy recipe, then we’ve got just the thing for you!
This dairy-free Turmeric Butter by Buffy-Ellen Gill contains only four ingredients, you can whip up a batch in a few minutes, and no fancy equipment is needed!
The brilliant yellow of this buttery spread is thanks to both the extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil as well as the warm, earthy Indian spice, turmeric.
Buffy recommends using her turmeric butter as a spread for your morning toast.
You can also this spread as a condiment anywhere you would use regular butter — croissants, muffins, pasta, and so on.
