Turmeric Ginger Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ frozen banana
  • 1 large handful of frozen peaches
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • ½ tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp raw honey
  • A dash off fresh cracked pepper (a necessity to help your body absorb the curcumin!)*

Instructions:

  1. Measure out all of your ingredients into a blender and blend it until smooth.
  2. Now that you’ve created such a spice packed restorative smoothie, you can dub yourself Spicemasterflex and drink away!

NERD ALERT: *Curcumin is not so easily absorbed into the bloodstream, so it helps to consume black pepper with it. Black pepper contains piperine, which is a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2000%….So don’t forget the dash of pepper!!
