I think turmeric is one of the greatest spices we can add to our diets for so many reasons.
Ground turmeric is perfectly good, but grated fresh turmeric is even better. It's probably not possible to have a curry every night of the week, so I try to think of other ways to incorporate it into my diet. This one works like a charm.
Fruity Turmeric Breakfast Bowl
- 1 x 400mL can (1½ cups) coconut milk, refrigerated overnight
- ½ banana, roughly chopped
- ½ green apple, cored and roughly chopped
- ½ teaspoon ground ginger or grated fresh ginger
- 1 teaspoon ground or freshly grated turmeric
- 100g (1 cup) strawberries, chopped
- 100g (¾ cup) blueberries
- honey, for drizzling
Spoon the cream off the top of the coconut milk and add the milk below to a food processor or blender with the banana, apple, ginger, and turmeric. Blitz until smooth, then pour into bowls and top with the strawberries, blueberries, and a drizzle of honey.
That’s all it takes—a super-easy way to get that super spice in.
