I’ve already mentioned how much I love turmeric and have included lots of turmeric recipes on the blog already. Today is the perfect anti-inflammatory recipe: a warming blend that can be served cold or warm.  It provides anti-inflammatory benefits, iron and magnesium.The cashews make it high in fat but an extremely nutrient-dense drink. 

A note about Ingredients

  • You can use store-bought cashew milk or make your own (note, if you do this avoid ones with carageenan added as this can irritate the gut. I’d recommend Plenish or Rude Health) 
  • If buying them then stock up in bulk. I have mentioned bulk buying nuts in my Poundland haul post and That Protein also do bulk cashews (you can get 20% off with my code here) I then use my trusty Nutribullet and it does a decent job of blending them if they’re presoaked (which will not only make them easier to blend but also easier to digest as it breaks down the phytic acid- which can interfere with absorbing the amazing benefits of cashews.)
  • Adding black pepper helps the absorption of turmeric and shouldn’t effect flavour. Always use organic turmeric; you can buy this is supermarkets but I recently started using Lucy Bee’s turmeric  it’s organic, comes from one source but also is so much easier to use than a sprinkle version (you can therefore just scoop out a spoonful directly making much less mess and making it easier for smoothies!)

    I spotted a turmeric latte not long ago and I debated whether I wanted to try it or not. I like turmeric in curries but am worried I’ll find it off putting to give it a go with milk. Cashew nut milk doesn’t sound bad actually 🙂 Thanks for sharing with #FreeFromFridays

    I’ve only recently started to learn about the benefits of turmeric and am keen to give this a go. My issue is time and ‘making from scratch’!
