Sweet turmeric smoothie

The miracles of turmeric

Going through my recipes you might have noticed that I adore turmeric. I hate the stains it gives, but I love the benefits of turmeric. I use it cold or in warm dishes, in smoothies or juices. Basically, whenever I can I will add turmeric. But why is turmeric so amazing? So why not make a sweet turmeric smoothie.

Curcumin is turmeric’s star anti-inflammatory ingredient. The anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric has been proven, but investigations are still underway. I wrote about it here.

Turmeric powder

In India its healing properties have been deeply appreciated for countless of centuries. You can add this spice into almost every dish. From quinoa to potatoes and soups and sauces.

However, as you know a smoothie is the perfect way to add superfoods and spices into your diet. So simply add half a teaspoon of turmeric powder into your smoothie. It can be a challenge to find fresh turmeric root so I do have to buy mine unfortunately always as a organic fair trade powder. If you ever get your hands on the fresh version of this root, buy a lot and freeze it.

A good example of a simple smoothie with turmeric would be the following recipe. It’s fresh, thick and will provide you with great energy to kick start the day.

      Eigenlijk wel overal. In elke supermarkt. Zoek naar ‘geelwortel’ of ‘tumeric’. 🙂
