  • 1/4 tsp turmeric or turmeric blend 
  • A pinch of black pepper to activate turmeric

  • 1 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (example: oat or almond milk)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil (optional)
  • 1 tsp natural sweetener ex. honey, maple syrup, or coconut sugar. (optional helps if you do not like as much of the spice flavor from the turmeric)

Instructions:

  1. Add matcha, turmeric, and black pepper into a mug or if iced into a glass.
  2. Top with hot water and whisk together.
