This recipe is perfect for the autumn/winter times of year due to the warming spices that somehow manage to bring a sense of comfort to you when it’s cold outside. Not only that but the spices are great anti-inflammatory foods and contain beneficial antioxidants too, all great especially as people tend to feel a little run down in the colder months.
I’ve made this recipe a few times now and although it’s optional I really liked the addition of some cinnamon flaxseed from Linwoods, plus this helps to boost the beneficial omega 3 fat content (which can be increased further if you use an organic dairy yogurt).
