Turmeric Canelita Mexican Hot Chocolate


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 Tadin Turmeric tea bags
  • 3 Tadin Cinnamon tea bags
  • 2 ounces Mexican chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • cayenne pepper (to taste)
  • whipped cream (for serving)
  • turmeric powder* (optional for serving)

*We recommend you try our Organic Ground Turmeric for this recipe.


  1. Heat milk to a rapid simmer over medium-low heat in a small saucepan. Cut the string from the tea bags and place the tea bags in the simmering milk.
  2. Reduce to low, cover the pot and let steep for 8 min (stir occasionally so that milk does not boil over).
  3. Whisk in chocolate, vanilla, sugar, salt (and cayenne pepper if you are adding). Whisk until chocolate has melted and everything is smooth (approx. 3-5 min).
  4. Pour into cup, top with whipped cream and dust with a pinch of turmeric powder.

Note: For extra sweetness, sprinkle chocolate shavings to the whipped cream and enjoy!
