2 sticks cinnamon
400ml can coconut milk
3 cups (750ml) coconut water
ground cinnamon, to serve
Place the turmeric, ginger, cinnamon sticks, coconut milk and coconut water in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cover with a lid and cook for 8–10 minutes or until mixture comes to the boil. Remove from the heat, strain and whisk to combine. Top with ground cinnamon to serve.
2Cashew Chai Latte
Not only is this cashew chai latte super simple to make, but it tastes a million times better than store-bought blends.
