We are big, huge fans of turmeric at Healing Lifestyles & Spas!
Turmeric, the golden spice prominent in yellow curry powder, may help prevent age-related cognitive decline. Regions of India that have the highest regular consumption of turmeric also interestingly have the lowest rates of Alzheimer’s disease. This has gained the attention of researchers in the U.S. and abroad at prominent universities and research institutions where they are looking into the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and other properties in turmeric that may play a role in protecting brain health.
This is a sweet, healthy and cooling beverage that also helps reduce inflammation! This recipe was inspired by Jesse Lane Wellness who suggested a combination of mango, ginger, turmeric and coconut. We added pineapple and replaced the water with coconut milk. Enjoy!
In a blender combine:
- 1 tsp. turmeric (fresh grated)
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ginger (fresh grated)
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
- 1 banana
Optional: 1 cup coconut ice cream (this makes this more of a shake than a smoothie)
Enjoy! Smoothie serves two.
