Saffron is one of the very expensive spices. Since it’s extremely pricey, it would not be cost effective for a restaurant or a coffee shop to use saffron in their own recipes. You don’t need to go to the coffee shop for saffron coffee or a saffron tea latte. You are able to make it in your home. Use the following recipe to make saffron coffee.

I am a major fan of homemade Christmas gifts, preferably edible in any form. That’s the reason why I can’t withhold from you my latest discovery, that beams the adored golden milk into a very different dimension. Because sometimes it needs to be something special.
In this chilly season I really like golden milk, it is so warming, calming and as demonstrated inflammation-inhibiting. Having a hint of saffron, however, it will become a decadent delicacy, which can be fairly fine after the meal as an alternative to espresso.
For me, saffron has always had a huge appeal, whether it be risotto, ice cream or in cakes. I like this sweet-smelling, musty note, which adds a precious aroma to any dish, and a touch of the orient, which the odor exudes. Additionally, there’s a fantastic mood-lightening color, which intensifies the hot golden color of this milk. So time for a gold milk update — why did not I get there earlier?
In fact, I have two discoveries for you, since occasionally it’s not really possible to pre-cook the turmeric paste. For the office, I, therefore, looked for a more straightforward choice and also rounded the taste a bit at the exact same time. Ginger brings in a nice slightly spicy fruitiness and cinnamon makes the golden milk even a bit sexier. Do not omit the pepper, however — I wrote concerning the multiplying effect of the Turmeric by piperine until here. I can’t say if the lacking cooking procedure affects the healing properties of the Turmeric. It is not an end to pleasure.
The result is a powder premix that is prepared quickly and may be simply mixed with warm plant established milk of your choice. Should you still have one of these handheld milk frothers (do you recall the times in the 90ies if they* proved so trend?) That can be readily stored in the drawer, you will be rewarded with a fast made delicious Saffron Turmeric Latte. Or of course, only use the fantastic old whisk.
And incidentally, this homemade turmeric-latte mix makes a very nice Christmas present, with a handful of saffron sachets attached to it one for special moments.

Recipes: Creamy Saffron Tea Latte
As an entrepreneur, my schedule varies each day as much as the weather does here in Oklahoma. With a solid data constitution, stability and structure is something I must work extra hard to create to keep my flighty tendencies in check (ie. I’d be drifting off to the ether right back to Tulum if the wind blew me in that direction!).
So I’ve made peace with early mornings last few years and really find relaxation in my daily rituals. In reality, I relish in rituals as a means to turn the regular ordinary into a life infused with purpose and meaning. Here is what a morning typically resembles around my house.
Okay, more like an increase in the dark winter light by 6 am with two cats sitting on my chest waiting for me to feed them.
Head into the Bathroom, begin my cleansing patterns of oil pulling, which I will do while I dry skin brush, then rub a copious number of sesame oil to my skin and shower. When I get out, I tongue scrape, brush my teeth and rub a little sesame oil or Nasya oil into my nasal passages.
Head to the Kitchen, turn in my kettle to start with a combination of warm water, lime juice, and aloe vera. Then, I begin making my breakfast tea. Sometimes, it is a chyvan prash and ghee elixir, other times it’s a little more sustaining like that saffron, fennel, cardamom, clove and garlic tea with thick creamy vanilla coconut milk I am sharing with you under.
Head into my Sacred Space, I have a room in my house I have committed to meditation and yoga practice. Since I teach private classes so that I take extra care to smudge and clean the energy in this area many times a day. I always have palo santo, white sage, or copal burning round my small change areas of goddesses, crystals, and blossoms.
I have that chatty anxious vata head, so free form writing is a means for me to bring the energy down and from my thoughts. In addition, I like pulling a couple of tarot cards medicine woman cards.
I’ve discovered these practices really beneficial for processing emotions and events in life through another lens. Then, I proceed to some tiny meditation my mother passed along to me, simply reflecting on what is emerging physically/emotionally/spiritually and what’s needed to create peace and equilibrium daily.
Vibrate & Move, last summer I purchased a Shruti box (a mini harmonium) to deepen my chanting practice. I can not sing for 2 pennies, but give me a Vedic mantra and I’ll belt out that baby. Sometimes, a long chanting session is all I will need for your day and other times I’ll move into a yoga treatment practices or a light asana. Is it just me, or does anybody else find that the elderly, or I must say, intuitively wiser you get, the further you just need to slow down and not bust ass in hard asana practice?
Mindful supper, around the new moon a cup of the saffron turmeric elixir is all that I want for a light breakfast, but around the full moon when my digestion is large I’ll head back into the kitchen to get a mindful meal of amaranth porridge or coconut germ yogurt until I dip into work.
Now, this morning routine isn’t always super slow or as extravagant as it seems. But taking at least 20-30 minutes per day has made a huge difference in my times and my overall wellbeing. I have discovered that sometimes it is not necessarily the supplements we carry or the food we consume that matters the most in our health, but how we gently produce and hold space for ourselves to emotionally digest and process all that we experience in our lives.
Born out of the super chilly mornings we’ve had this winter, came this tender and creamy latte into my routine morning rituals. I have possibly burnt myself out on herbal chai recently, so this saffron-infused version has satisfied my need for a warming winter elixir. I go back for a second and sometimes third cup when I’m snuggled in a blanket in snowy times like now. I hope this recipe warms your spirit how it does mine, and also makes your morning rituals somewhat sweeter.
