Golden Coconut Apple Oatmeal

October 31, 2018

The key ingredient you need to create this “golden milk” oatmeal is turmeric. We’ve talked a lot about turmeric on the blog before. It’s a powerful anti-inflammatory and I like to include it in my diet regularly to improve recovery.

To enhance the absorption of curcurmin, the active ingredient found in turmeric, I added some black pepper. I also added ginger, cinnamon and cardamom for that warming, sweet and savoury blend of spices that go so well together. If you’re missing one of those, that’s okay. Just turmeric and either cinnamon or ginger is delicious, cardamom is just a bonus. If you have them all, go for it!

You can also try turmeric in my Savory Oatmeal with Tempeh and TurmericVegan Peanut Butter Cup Protein Shake or Vegan Turmeric Carrot Oatmeal Cookies.
