Turmeric Smoothie

/ Lifestyle

This is currently one of my favorite morning drinks. I made myself give up coffee… again! And to get over the temptations of my sugar-filled-cream-filled-calorie-loaded-morning drink, I make this as soon as I get up and it’s refreshing and filling and by the end of the drink I think about coffee a lot less… well, maybe a little bit less.

Turmeric Smoothie

1/2 cups yogurt- plain and simple is best
1/2 banana or 1/2 frozen banana
1/2-1 tsp freshly grated ginger (depending on taste preference)
2 tsp honey- I left this out completely
1/4 lemon, juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tsp ground turmeric (or fresh turmeric root)
I added 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp bee pollen (optional)
4-5 ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender and mix on high speed until smooth. Add turmeric on top for presentation.
