I am so insanely excited about this recipe and I cannot wait for you all to try it! After receiving some amazing Red Espresso products I decided to create a unique recipe for each Latte Mix. Today’s recipe is the first of three which will be incorporating a Red Espresso Latte Mix, and this one just happens to be one I am currently obsessed with… Turmeric!The Turmeric Latte Mix is made from simple plant based ingredients, namely turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and organic coconut blossom sugar. This applies to the other Latte Mixes as well – clean, plant based ingredients which feed our bodies with the nutrients we need!

It goes without saying that these latte mixes are delicious as the warm beverages they were created to be, I just felt inspired to change things up a bit and have a little fun with recipe developing.

From my previous post it is clear that oatmeal for breakfast is a definite favourite of mine, this is due to the health benefits, as well as how diverse it can be as a breakfast dish. Now combine the health benefits of oatmeal with the health benefits of turmeric and BAM, we’ve got ourselves a golden start to the day!

As I have experimented with a type of turmeric oatmeal before, I thought I’d give a similar recipe a bash by replacing the previously added normal turmeric spice with the Turmeric Latte Mix. The results were to die for.

As the Latte Mix contains only natural plant based ingredients, you can be assured that you are doing your healthy conscious self a favour by making this for breakfast. The sweet coconut blossom sugar adds the perfect balance to the savoury turmeric flavour that most of us would want to avoid in a breakfast dish. Trust me, it just works!

Method:

Cut the dates into smaller pieces and place all of your ingredients into a pot.

Bring your pot to a boil and then turn down to a medium heat.

Be sure to stir often to ensure a smooth and creamy consistency.

To serve:

I enjoyed keeping the toppings simple by adding coconut shavings, chia seeds and a splash of almond milk. The coconut shavings bring out the coconut blossom sugar flavour found in the Latte Mix, making the coconut a perfect complimentary topping!

Serve warm.
