5 Ways To Add The Unicorn Of Spices To Your Life

Like a pretty new girl transferring to a high school mid-year, turmeric just swooped in and stole the whole damn show. Everybody is talking about turmeric as if it’s some new spice that just popped up out of nowhere, but in fact it’s been popular in India for thousands of years. So what’s all the fuss about? Besides giving our favorite Coconut Chicken Curry a tinge of color and loads of flavor, turmeric is known for it’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Recent studies have shown it boosts memory, can combat chronic pain and can help digestion. Yeah, turmeric is basically the unicorn of spices all around. Here’s five ways to incorporate it into your daily routine!carrot-ginger-turmeric-smoothieSource: Minimalist Baker

1. Start Your Morning Off With A Super Healthy Smoothie:

This morning pick-me-up is a triple-threat. Carrot, ginger and turmeric are all mixed together to make a naturally sweet, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant packed smoothie that can help boost your immune system.

2. Make A Skin Brightening Turmeric Face Mask:
Trust us, having a bright yellow face for 15-20 minutes after you slather on this DIY turmeric and lemon mask will be so worth it! Turmeric has antibacterial properties that can help prevent and heal breakouts and it’s been known to tone and brighten skin.

3. Try This Ginger & Turmeric Latte From Goop:
Our girl Gwen knows her stuff when it comes to healthy living, so you know this ginger & turmeric latte has got it going on. Blend this baby up and reap the benefits of enjoying an anti-inflammatory drink that tastes like a treat.

4. Whip Up Ultra-Creamy “Golden Milk” Ice Cream:
All this health talk has us craving something sweet and the hype about turmeric is true — it really can do it all! In this non-dairy recipe, turmeric is combined with coconut milk and only a handful of other health-boosting ingredients to create a dessert that tastes naughty but is oh-so-good for you.

5. Cook Our Personal Fav Coconut Chicken Curry For Dinner:
This stunner is so tasty it will blow your mind and impress your guests when it comes together in less than 30 minutes. I’ve posted about this recipe multiple times because it’s THAT good. It’s also the perfect meal to make when you’re craving take-out and it’s easy enough to make on a busy weeknight.

Have you tried adding turmeric (in other words known as the unicorn of spices) to any of your favorite recipes for a health boost? Comment below with your go-to so we can try them out too!

    Just FYI Tumeric should be used in the kitchen with caution because it stains – it can even stain glass and cooking utensils, so be careful not to get it on your clothes! Also maybe try a test patch of skin before using the face mask on your face since it could stain your skin? (not sure but just saying might be better to safe than sorry 🙂 )

    • Maggie Fromm says:

      Those are really great suggestions!!

    • Sarah says:

      I tried it one time and it stained my skin. Luckily I wasn’t going anywhere and after some scrubbing, moisturizer and sleeping I woke up the next morning pretty much back to normal. Definitely recommend doing it when you don’t need to see anyone or go out in public, or else you will have yellow stained skin!

    Love my daily dose of Turmeric. I like to blend a batch of turmeric, cinnamon (also a unicorn spice), and honey and dollop it into hot water for some afternoon tea.
