Have you tried my Raw Hemp Seed Halvah Dessert  

Tropical anti-inflammatory smoothie with fresh turmeric root

Yum! This turned out way better than I expected! It was a perfect energizing afternoon pick me up.

Ingredients:
1 banana
1 orange, peeled
1 cup frozen pineapple
1-2 cups almond milk
1/2 unsweetened shredded coconut
1 inch piece fresh ginger root
2 inch piece fresh turmeric root
1 tsp cinnamon

Blend all ingredients until smooth.

Curcumin, the main compound found in turmeric is a powerful anti inflammatory and antioxidant.

I normally juice turmeric root but wanted to see what it would taste like in a smoothie and I loved it. The taste was completely covered up. If it’s too spicy for you add less turmeric and ginger.

Note: by taking turmeric with black pepper, it increases it’s absorption by 2000%.
