Cafe Gratitude is one of those quintessential LA restaurants where the ambiance and experience is just as fulfilling as their wholesome food. If you live in L.A., you know. If you live elsewhere, you’ve probably heard – possibly because the place is always packed with celebs and dishes sport names like “I Am Radiant.” This 100% organic plant-based restaurant has a knack for transforming what was once deemed hippie communal food into seasonal and gourmet comfort food the city is hooked on.
One of our latest winter drink obsessions is their creamy turmeric latte. Certain superfoods have reached ultra-trendy levels in the past few years and turmeric is one of them. On one hand, it’s odd–we’re talking about a spice that’s been valued for thousands of years. On the other hand, we’re not mad – everyone can benefit from more of this incredible root.
We asked Cafe Gratitude to share this incredible recipe so we can all make it at home on chilly winter days – here it is, packed with omega 3-rich hemp seeds, dates, immunity-boosting fresh turmeric juice and whole vanilla bean…
Cafe Gratitude’s Turmeric Latte
14 oz water
2 Tbsp hemp seeds
2 medjool dates
1 oz fresh turmeric juice
