Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

I love to incorporate turmeric into our diets because it is a powerful herb to say the least. As much as we love Golden Milk, in the hot summer months we don’t always want to drink a hot drink. Through this summer I have found the best way to use our Turmeric Paste is to add it to smoothies.

Did you know that most diseases are rooted in inflammation? Health problems like ADHD, migraines, Chronic pain, diabetes, and even cancer have a root of inflammation!

We have had to take the steps to make some real changes in our families. Think of what your family eats on a daily bases. Is it packaged foods like crackers, cereal, and pasta? Are they drinking things like milk, bottled juice or soda?  Our kids are growing up eating things that cause inflammation and ultimately……disease. I would like to think we could all someday just pass peacefully of old age, but I fear if we don’t start making some changes that will not be the case.

I’ve had some great testimonies of people who started incorporating Golden Milk into their diet and have had great success in managing pain. This smoothie can do the same. I packed this drink not only with turmeric, but many ingredients that can help fight inflammation!

Dr Axe stated in one of his articles that a study found that turmerics primary compound curcumin is far more potent than aspirin, and Ibuprofen as an anti-inflammatory and anti-proliferative agent (meaning its used to prevent the spread of cells, especially malignant cells, into surrounding tissue.) This is amazing!

  • 2 tsp turmeric paste
  • 1 tsp whole flax seed
  • 1 -2 tsp honey or maple syrup (optional)

Directions

  • In you nutri-bullet or blender place all ingredients (I like to put coconut milk first so nothing sticks to side of the blender)
  • Blend until you get a smooth consistency.

Cherry”Nice”cream 

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 10 cherries pitted and frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries

Directions

  • Place all ingredients in your nutri-bulletGet Nutri-Bullet here or blender
  • Blend until you have a smooth consistency.

*Tips- To get your nice cream to set on top without sinking freeze smoothie just until it starts to freeze and get thick, then top with nice cream.

*Always buy good quality organic turmericLike this one. If you buy cheap not only is it irradiated, but may possibly not be 100% turmeric, and therefore you will not receive the benefits.
