I hope this post finds you well. I wanted to share this recipe for a turmeric smoothie. Don’t let the spice steer you away from trying this. I honestly could not taste it. The coconut milk completely masks the taste. I came upon this recipe when I was on Pinterest of course, and wanted to find some new smoothies. I had no idea I could use this. Turmeric has a ton of uses, and is great for you. People use the spice in food, in face masks, and now I guess, in smoothies.
Benefits of Turmeric
Defined by the Mayo Clinic, as a “functional food” turmeric has loads of benefits and few side effects. It is mostly found in South Asian countries, but you can grow it in your yard if you would like. I found many benefits of turmeric, over at the Dr. Axe website that I will list and you can click the link for more information:
- Fights Inflammation
- Reduces depression
- Boosts skin health
- Can treat or prevent certain cancers
- Helps manage diabetes
- Combats obesity
- Regulates cholestoral
Wow, that’s’ quite a list. I personally love foods with turmeric, as you can see I tried to make my own Aloo Gobi, a North Indian recipe I found, and I hope to make more. Try this smoothie, and let me know what you think!
