Cafe Gratitude

Google’s Food Trends Report called the spice turmeric -- a member of the ginger family that is the main spice in curry -- the “Breakout Star” of 2016. The superfood is said to be the most powerful herb on the planet, and it’s finding its way into more and more menu items.

These two beverage recipes come from California’s Café Gratitude, which specializes in 100% organic plant-based cuisine.
