A Spice&Easy Lockdown!

Updated: Apr 7

Well here we are in lockdown at the Spice House, along with you all....well not literally with you all, but you get the gist!


Working from home is the norm for us, however we are missing our two 'open' days a week and catching up with our lovely customers! So, with a little extra time on our hands we thought we would share with you some of the easy ways we enjoy our products daily!


Whilst social distancing, self-isolation and hand hygiene are the most important factors in avoiding this Covid 19 virus, we firmly believe it is necessary to build up our immune system as well. One way we do this is through a daily smoothie packed with goodness.


Our favourite smoothie at the moment is our orange and banana Spice House special, which we would love to share with you!


Full of natural goodness, this is such a healthy way to start the day. It is made using fresh fruit with the addition of two Spice and Easy favourites: 'Beetroot Powder' and 'True Ceylon Cinnamon' (both are available in our online shop). 'Beetroot Powder' is red, thus packed with anti-oxidants, helping to lower our blood pressure and ease the effects of stress on our body at this challenging time. Our 'True Ceylon Cinnamon' is packed with anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial properties and more, offering huge support to our immune system!


Oh and one very important point... it is so very delicious!


Here is how to make it, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! 🍌🍊
