A few days ago I mentioned, Selasi Gbormittah, The Great British Bake Off’s break-out star, motorcyclist and banker, has partnered with Vita Coco to provide winter warming recipes with a hint of summer flavour.

On Friday I share Selasi Ridiculously Good Coconut Cornbread recipe and on Saturday I shared Lollipop Coconut Chicken. Today I have one more recipe for you; Turmeric Sweet Potato Pie.
