Two weeks ago, I made this incredibly good turmeric almond milk from Healthful Pursuit.
I used fresh turmeric instead of the powdered stuff and the flavour was unexpected fruity. I don’t know if that was because of the fresh turmeric or if it would have tasted the same with the dried turmeric powder. But I liked that. A lot!
And that’s why I thought this morning, that the turmeric (there is still a fresh piece in my fridge …) might taste very good paired with melon. And with a charentais melon waiting in my fridge as well, I changed the recipe to a very delicious, exotic milkshake.
- 5ooml coconut-rice milk (or rice-coconut milk :-) )
- 1–2 cm fresh turmeric, peeled
- 1/2 charentais melon, deseeded and flesh scooped out (I guess any honeydew melon will do)
- 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
- 8 stoned dates
- 4–5 ice cubes (optional)
Simply staple everything in your blender. If the dates are quite dry, it might help to soak them for some minutes in the milk. Blitz until everything is smooth.
Divide between 4 small glasses (0,2l) or 2 larger ones (0,4l).
