Turmeric is one of those wonder spices that I would like to use more often yet, because I’m not a great curry fan, I never quite know how to get my fix.
I’ve come across a few smoothie recipes in my quest and have played around and found a combination that I really love. This smoothie has a real nutritional punch with carrot, mango, coconut water and turmeric, so a great way to start the day.
I recently discovered these Rude Health ginger and turmeric oatcakes, which are the perfect accompaniment. I could happily eat them all without the need for any toppings – but I did find some peanut butter worked rather well.
