I believe all of you have heard about the miraculous effects turmeric has on your body and the health in general it is enriched with curcumin and the following are several of the many benefits it has:
- Full with antioxidants
- Fights against viruses
- Fights against bacteria
- Forbids appearance of inflammation
- Prevents appearance of tumors
People don’t use the turmeric only as a spice for their food, such as in the curry spice which it gives flavor and color to the curry. Also, a lot of people and especially the enthusiasts for health use it as an ingredient to give their smoothies a boost. The following is a recipe of a turmeric smoothie which can give amazing benefits and effects on your overall health.
For this recipe you will need this:
- One cup of coconut milk
- One banana
- Half a teaspoon of ginger
- Half a teaspoon of cinnamon
- Half a teaspoon of turmeric powder
- Half a cup of a pineapple which is frozen
- One tablespoon of coconut oil
- One teaspoon of chia seeds
Similar like all the other smoothies, all you have to do is to put the ingredients in a bowl and use a blender to blend them until you get a nice mixture.
So, for those people who don’t like pineapples that much, if you want to make the taste sweeter instead of drinking it sour you can put some mango chunks instead of the frozen pineapple. Just put the same size like of the pineapple. On the other hand, if you want a smoothie with much stronger taste then add one additional spoon of turmeric. You can also add in the smoothie one teaspoon of maca root, it will give it a malty flavor or something else similar to butterscotch.
You will drink this smoothie regularly every day or first you can try and drink other smoothies and then add in them half or full teaspoon of turmeric.
