New to our Autumn menu at Black Velvet Espresso and Black Velvet Elizabeth, is our homemade Spiced Tumeric Latte. It’s warm, creamy, and delicious and, potentially has many health benefits.

We’ve chosen to create our own blend of specially chosen spices to lower the sugar content (which tends to be high in pre-packaged mixes) and increase ingredients that may have positive effects on the body.

Curcumin, for example, is the antioxidant that gives turmeric its beautiful golden colour. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial health properties, which have been linked to the prevention of cancer cell growth and management of inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis, asthma, eczema and inflammatory bowel disease.

The high antioxidant and anti-bacterial content in turmeric also means it is potentially great for helping to reduce the symptoms of cold and flu. Adding to its impressive list of nutritional benefits, turmeric is rich in manganese, zinc, B group vitamins and iron, which can help support a healthy metabolism.

Come and try our very own version of Spiced Tumeric Latte yourself. Available throughout Autumn only.
