I make this turmeric-ginger yogurt bowl for breakfast when I don’t feel like eating something hot and have some plant yogurt available in my fridge. If you, like me, want to use more turmeric and ginger in daily-meals, this turmeric-ginger yogurt bowl is a great breakfast choice because it is easy to make and we are using only raw fresh ingredients to preserve all the benefits! Turmeric and Ginger are two incredible medicinal spices, which people used for treating many diseases related to inflammation before the antibiotics were invented! They both antiviral, have anti-inflammatory properties, help fight bacteria and very helpful during flu seasons and are my go-to foods during the coronavirus outbreak to protect my immune system. Read more about turmeric and ginger health benefits here and here.
Fresh turmeric is widely available in the supermarket in the area where I live! However, I do understand that you might have difficulties to find it in some parts of the world. I do prefer stock on some fresh turmeric in my fridge to able to add it in teas, smoothies and yogurt bowls like this! Consuming both fresh and dried turmeric is health beneficial, that is why don’t hesitate to use the powder instead in this turmeric-ginger yogurt bowl! The important note is that our body does not absorb turmeric in any form that easy. To help the absorption, add a dash of black pepper to anything, where you are adding turmeric!
As well as turmeric, in a raw dish like this bowl, I prefer using fresh ginger rather than powdered. However, it is better to use a powder, than not using it at all! Keep your fresh ginger in a fridge to a longer life! If you are afraid that the yogurt bowl would be too spicy, add slightly less ginger. However, I like this little kick- the sweetness of the berries and fruits balances it out!
- Everyone has their own favorite fruits, nuts, seeds, and berries. That is why I am not going to specify what exactly to add in this turmeric-ginger yogurt bowl. However, berries such as raspberries and blueberries are very high in Vitamin C and have a lot of anti-oxidants. That is why I highly recommend adding them if you want your yogurt bowl to be 100% immune-boosting and support your health during coronavirus outbreak or just in during the flu. Fruits like oranges, kiwi, papaya and pineapple are also very high in vitamin C and would make a perfect choice for this yogurt bowl. I also added some hemp seeds to add that Omega-3.
- In terms of yogurt, I prefer more liquid ones, as you can easily mix them with other components. I have used an organic almond yogurt in this bowl, but other plant-based yogurts would work as well! Add a little bit of plant milk, if your yogurt of choice is too thick!
- As a natural sweetener I am using 1 small banana here, blended together with the yogurt, turmeric and ginger. You can also use maple syrup, dates and other natural sweeteners as a substitute or nothing at all!
