This Turmeric Porridge is gently spiced with cinnamon, ginger and turmeric, drenched in creamy almond milk and topped with a healthy selection of tasty sprinkles. It’s my take on golden milk, but in oatmeal form!
Golden milk is the term given to milk infused with turmeric which gives it the wonderful gold colour. Turmeric is known for its numerous health benefits, including its anti-inflammatory actions. A great addition to many meals and snacks due to its subtle flavour, but be warned, the colour has the potential to stain white stuff so don’t wear your nice gear when prepping or eating (if you’re a messy eater)!
