Grocery store and “holistic lifestyle hub” About Life have opened their first store outside of Sydney in Port Melbourne. As well as selling a range of locally, ethically and sustainably sourced produce and products, the store also features a cafe, juice station, and an in-store wellness expert. Sisters and founders Jodie Stewart and Tammie Phillips want to “eliminate the nasties – artificial preservatives, flavours, sweeteners, colours and more – found in conventional supermarkets and instead replace these with natural, ethical groceries that won’t break the bank or leave a large footprint.”
To celebrate the opening of the Port Melbourne store, Jodie and Tammie have shared with us this for a ginger turmeric latte recipe. Tasty and easy to make, the ginger and turmeric work together to help fight gastro-intestinal problems, inflammatory conditions, nausea, cold and other respiratory conditions.
Preparation Time: 3 minutes / Steeping Time: 3 minutes / Serves 1
- ¼ tsp (1.25g) turmeric powder
- 1 small knob ginger, grated
- ¾ cup (180ml) hot water
- 1 cup (250ml) coconut milk, hot & frothed
- Steep the grated ginger in hot water for 3 minutes.
- Strain the water into a glass with the turmeric powder and stir well

If you don’t have coconut milk, you can use cow’s milk or soy milk as a replacement.
