The benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric, or Kurkuma, is more than just a spice. The benefits of this superstar spice are endless. As a natural anti-inflammatory, it aids in digestion and purifies the blood. Its bright colour is due to the antioxidant pigments ( hint: keep it away from your new clothes!). I even use it to colour my healthy baking goods.


Usually found in delicious Indian curries, here it is in a sweet, warming, sexy milk. I love drinking this on a cosy night when I am craving something naughty. The perfect pre-bedtime drink!

Turmeric is absorbed more easily into your system if you eat it in combination with cayenne or black pepper.

Serves 1

250 ml plantbased milk ( I use Provamel unsweetened almond milk )
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp honey
1cm slice fresh ginger
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper

Warm the mixed ingredients on the stove for a couple minutes and pour into your favourite mug. Serve hot!
Not only does it smell delicious, it will immediately make you feel strong from the inside…
