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