Why didn’t we think of this sooner? Bliss balls are the best mid-morning or afternoon snack and we make them all the time with our matcha. So, why not our turmeric blend? We’ve got a recipe for you below that I think you’re going to love!
Turmeric has been used for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb and it’s powerful healing abilities have finally been embraced by the masses. In both Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric is widely known as a digestive aid, improving digestion and reducing gas and bloating.
Everyday our bodies are bombarded with pollution, radiation, cigarette smoke and UV that can cause free radicals. Free radicals can damage the body’s cells and alter proteins in DNA that trigger a number of human diseases. Curcumin, in turmeric, is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect our bodies from these free radicals.
The number one question we receive from our customers is how to prepare our Golden Turmeric Ginger tea. We usually recommend making a latte, but we’ve been thinking.. if turmeric, ginger and cinnamon taste so good as a golden latte, they’ve got to taste amazing in a million other things too.
The first test was a simple iced golden milk. Amazing. The second test was a mango turmeric smoothie. Also amazing. Next we tried out a few bliss ball recipes tweaking them to work with our Golden Turmeric Ginger tea. The warming, sweet and spicy flavours are perfect in a bliss ball!
