It kicks! Turmeric, strawberries, beet and more make a drink as punchy as it is colourful….Turmeric is that pungent, bright yellow, woody-tasting spice that promotes proper metabolism, healthy heart and clear skin It’s great for stomach ailments, blood cleansing and – would you believe – sprains?
The taste? .......... Unique… From Lost Knob comes a final offering: A tantalising beverage with fascinating mouth feel. Pungent and woody turmeric notes come through strongly and leave an intriguing aftertaste amplified by the woodiness of the beet and counterpointed by the tang of strawberry and orange…
The vibrant ‘red on red’ hue is deeply intensified by the golden stain of the fresh turmeric….... The palate is long and slightly acrid ..And I apologise if I’ve pinched anyone else’s recipe, but I haven’t seen it anywhere else and this was so good I had to christen it and make it public.
This is soooo cooling and refreshing – I just had one and needed to share!! The slight creaminess from the brazil nuts and sunflower seeds, mixes perfectly with the mint-melon-lemon tang. The use of a small amount honey or agave brings out the flavour of the melon – be sure not to use too much! Enjoy:)

a tart drink, with all the fiber from the greens leftover. i find that green smoothies are a little too sweet for me and i don’t get much green “mileage” out of them. the play between the tart citrus and the sweet apple in this covers up the bitterness of the greens nicely. and a bonus is that it turns into a kind of frappe when you make it with spinach. ENJOY!
