If you wanted to create the perfect smoothie with potent anti-inflammatories, as well as antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal constituents, look no further than adding turmeric. This is also the perfect post-workout shake to aid healing and muscle growth with the high-GI fruit combined with whey protein!
1 cup hemp or coconut milk
1/2 cup frozen pineapple (contains natural anti-inflammatory bromelain)
1/2 fresh banana OR 1/2 cup frozen cauliflower florets if avoiding bananas)
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 teaspoon turmeric (add 1 teaspoon for more benefits)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon chia seeds
1-2 scoops of protein powder – whey or vegan formula
In a blender mix all the ingredients and blend fully. For added protein add your favourite protein powder once all ingredients are blended. Don’t over blend the protein powder! I made this on the weekend and loved its creamy and delicious flavour.
