Have you ever considered adding turmeric to your smoothie? Either did I until I explored the many health benefits of this healing spice!  Chinese medicine has been using turmeric for decades for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties.

I started sprinkling this golden spice on my dishes a few years ago and after studying that turmeric is loaded with nutrients such as niacin, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, potassium, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc I decided to create this smoothie recipe.

Turmeric provides an abundance of antioxidants supporting cellular health so it is a great post-workout smoothie too!

With only minimal ingredients, this smoothie is easy to prepare and yummy to drink!
