Weekend Chills – Creamy Turmeric Milkshake

Turmeric Milk Golden Milkshake

As of late, turmeric has been sneaking it into all of my sweet concoctions. From smoothie bowls like this one I posted to my Nom channel, to morning pancakes, and fresh juices – you name it, I’ll turmeric it! With the sunshine recently chasing away  the west coast rain, we’ve been finding ourselves reaching more and more for a chilly drink to cool us after a long day at work. While I’m always partial for a smoothie bowl thick as ice cream, Adam thinks they’re pretty much awful and is more into drinking his drinks rather than eating them with a spoon (go figure).

This is my take on a happy medium. It’s rich and creamy with out being too thick, and is perfectly drinkable though a straw. I kind of consider it a lazy woman’s version of my Raw Milk Shake Love (also, why on earth did I post a milkshake recipe in February? Jeez 2014 me!), as the only preplanning you need to do is the soaking of nuts. An easy way to make this stress-free is to soak a handful of nuts in the fridge the night before. They will last for a couple of days if you don’t get to them asap, so no worries.

Also, I’ll be posting a Weekend Chill recipe every weekend this summer! Any excuse to get that cute Popsicle mould, am I right? Anyways, keep your eyes peeled for some of my favourite easy ways to cool  and chill out (think popsicles, ice creams, smoothies, and juices here…and maybe some surprises). Stay cool, friends!

  • Renee’s You Tube Channel is blossoming and I loved this video – primarily ’cause I’m nosey as heck and could never commit to doing this myself.
  • During a night of insomnia, I ordered this pan off Amazon and later thought I’d regret it. Fact is, I love it! Made these with it and covered them in cinnamon sugar. Soooo good, you guys! So good!
  • Need to brush up my sewing skills, because I think these overalls in black would be ever so cute and practical to make.
  • Speaking of making things, I am desperate to make this ice cream that Lindsay made from Virpi + and Tuulia’s book.
