winter Carrot & Turmeric Soup

I haven’t been making nearly enough soups this winter, but with negative temps (-25!) for the past week, I felt inspired to make something warm and delicious.

Further Food sent me a jar of their Daily Turmeric Tonic to try and I have to say it is amazing.

You may have ordered a golden milk latte or steamer at your favorite coffee shop, but if you’ve tried to make one at home, you know that it’s pretty hard to get the flavor just right and to blend the spices in without them clumping.

The Further Food Daily Turmeric Tonic is the perfect blend of naturally sweet and anti-inflammatory spices and makes the perfect golden milk (seriously, the best and so easy). Below I used it to make a hearty and delicious winter carrot and turmeric soup. It would also be good in curry or smoothies or in place of turmeric in any recipe.
