Apricot, cashew & turmeric balls

Curcumin is the main active ingredient in turmeric. It has powerful anti-inflammatory effects and is a strong antioxidant.It has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb.

 

We had some friends call in for afternoon tea over the long weekend… and looking in the cupboard for inspo… I had some dried apricots – so I decided to make some raw balls (well technically not entirely raw, as I toasted my cashews to intensify the flavour) as they are so quick and easy to whip up.

These little balls were quite delightful, and totally satisfied that afternoon sweet craving.

Double the ingredients listed below, if you want to make a larger batch.
