Top turmeric tips
Golden yellow turmeric adds an earthiness spiciness to your smoothie, as well as a bit of colour. Be warned: turmeric likes to dye everything yellow, so chop it on a plate or glass chopping board (or wash your chopping board straight away) and use gloves to protect your hands. The leftover turmeric will keep in the fridge for a few days and it's great in curries and soups, or slice it and pop in a pan with any leftover cardamom pods and peppercorns and add milk (almond, coconut, oat, dairy - whatever you prefer) and gently warm till it's steaming hot and aromatic. Strain into a mug and drink before bed.
