Have you caught on to the turmeric trend yet? I was a little hesitant at first. The idea of adding that incredibly yellow, spicy powder to such a wide variety of foods seemed incredibly strange to me. But after a quick little google search and a scan over a few articles I was sold!
Why have we not been adding turmeric to our foods for years? That stuff is like magic dust! Okay, let me give you a quick little low down. Tumeric is packed with antioxidants, it has incredible anti-inflammatory properties and is even good for your skin (so it’s okay if you get the smoothie all over your face).
I think what I love about it the most is that you can really add it to anything. I’ve even had turmeric ice-cream and it was insanely delicious! So try adding it to your basic pancake mix, warm up a little almond milk and honey then add a dash of turmeric, or simply use it in your favourite curry. It’s really easy to incorporate on a daily basis and totally worth the benefits!
Okay, onto this very yellow smoothie. As usual, this recipe consists of chucking everything into a blender and not much else (I’m lazy okay). So it’s a pretty awesome on the go snack or even as a dessert. Try pouring it into a flat bowl and placing it into the freezer, you’ll end up with turmeric ice-cream! At first, it does seem a little strange to drink something so incredibly yellow, and please do beware of spills (it’s not exactly clothing friendly) but once you get a taste of this stuff, you’ll totally be hooked!
Pop on over to my Instagram page and let me know what you think of this yellow beauty. Or just come say haaay!
