Turmeric + Coconut Bliss = A Heavenly Match
Want to use turmeric in your food but don’t know where to start? Let us help you out! On top of our new delicious flavor that uses turmeric, we created two mouth-watering recipes that combine it with some divine Coconut Bliss. One is sweet, the other savory, and both will bring your taste buds to a new world of bliss.
Our Savory Turmeric Cashew Crunch Infinite Coconut Bars are the perfect combination of sweet, savory, crunchy and creamy all in one bite. Turmeric and chili powder add delicious spice to the nut topping that complements the creaminess of our Infinite Coconut Bars.
With Easter coming up, we created some Chocolate-Covered Vegan Cream Eggs with turmeric yolks as a sweet holiday treat. Caramelized Madagascan Vanilla Bean, dark chocolate shells, and a hint of turmeric make these eggs a family favorite.
Turmeric and Your Health
Turmeric’s medicinal properties have been observed for thousands of years thanks to a compound it contains known as curcumin, which boasts a variety of beneficial effects. Two of the main medicinal effects of the spice are its natural anti-inflammatory properties and its potent anti-oxidant capacity. Beyond that, it has also been known to help ease the painful effects of arthritis, and studies have shown positive signs in turmeric’s ability to help with depression, Alzheimer’s, IBS, headaches, and more.
Spice Up Your Life!
Turmeric can be used in so much more than food and medicine. Because of its eye-catching color, it makes for a great natural dye for anything from clothes to Easter eggs to homemade playdough! Its rich and earthy aroma makes for a wonderful addition to homemade soaps and candles.
Whether it’s in your pint of Golden Banana Brownie Swirl, in one of our delicious recipes, or somewhere else entirely, there are so many ways to add more turmeric to your life. And with such an appealing flavor and so many positive health benefits, there’s no reason to miss out!
