I wasn’t so familiar with curcuma/turmeric powder and its properties until 2 years ago. While searching for natural colorants for soaps I discovered how good it is for our health. I started to use it once in a while in some Indian dishes. But the true love for turmeric started some months ago: when browsing one of my favorite food blogs posts I found an interesting curcuma shake recipe which intrigued me from the first moment. I had to try it immediately myself. With some small changes this shake was one of the best shakes I ever drank and since that moment it became a part of our daily life. My daughters love it too, and despite the fact that some of the ingredients used (curcuma, ginger) sound a bit strange and spicy, the combination is really good and quite exotic. A must for this summer month!
Recipe: adapted from Green Kitchen Stories
500 ml rejuvelac/Romanian bors/water
2 full TbSp hemp seeds
1,5 frozen bananas
The juice of half a lemon
2 cm fresh ginger
2TbSp curcuma powder
1 TbSp bee pollen
P.S. In case you are using fresh curcuma, make sure you decrease the quantity of it, as fresh curcuma is much stronger than the powdered one.
In case you are using bors which is too sour (the bought one can sometime be very sour), make sure you dilute it with water and don’t use any lemon juice.
