Turmeric Smoothie

Turmeric is the new Acai. Seriously.

Okay, so it just happens to be trending but it’s also yellow and not only is yellow my favourite color it’s proven by science to make you happy so I made a turmeric smoothie-bowl and I was happy and it was YUM.

But in other, more serious, less children’s-book wording, Turmeric AKA “Indian saffron” is a proven powerful medicine that has long been used in the Chinese and Indian systems of medicine as an anti-inflammatory agent to treat a wide variety of conditions, including flatulence, jaundice, menstrual difficulties, bloody urine, hemorrhage, toothache, bruises, chest pain, colic and more.

To make this, simply blitz together the following in a blender or food processor:

3/4 cup of milk of choice (I used unsweetened almond)
3/4 cup of mango chunks, fresh or frozen (I used frozen)
1/2 banana
1 tsp turmeric
