Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie

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. This Anti-Inflammatory Smoothie is a great way to do it!

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!


What we eat can fight or cause disease

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, pasta, and chips? Is it things that come across healthy but are in fact harmful like over-sweetened yogurts, granola bars, and fruit gummies? 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. We have to take charge of the way we eat for ourselves and our families!

Turmeric has great benefits!

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 it’s used to prevent the spread of cells, especially malignant cells, into the surrounding tissue.) This is amazing! Turmeric also

  • A powerful anti-inflammatory.
  • Boosts the immune system.
  • Tumeric helps to detox the liver.
  • It helps to reduce bad cholesterol.
  • It’s a natural antibiotic.
  • It helps to treat skin conditions.
  • It helps to prevent cancer and shrink tumors.
  • Turmeric helps to improve digestion.

Remember this quote,

“Every time you eat and drink, you are either feeding disease or fighting it.”

  • In your Nutri-bullet or blender place all ingredients (I like to put coconut milk first so nothing sticks to the sides of the blender).

Nice cream

  • Place all ingredients in your Nutri-bullet or blender

*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 turmeric. If you buy cheap not only is it irradiated, but it may possibly not be 100% turmeric, and therefore you will not receive the benefits.
*"Nice"cream is optional. If you want to make it, a couple of hours before making smoothie place peeled banana, cherries, and raspberries in the freezer.
