Golden Milk Smoothie

Turmeric has long been known for its wonderful medicinal benefits, especially when it comes to anti-inflammatory properties. The main constituent of turmeric is called curcumin, which serves as a powerful aid for inflammation and pain related to it. In order to bring out that constituent, you need to add ground black pepper or some sort of fat to your turmeric concoction. Fats such as nuts, oils, coconut, animal fats and butter are great binders and will serve you well in your turmeric journey...
Ingredients: 
    • 1 1/2 cups milk (of your choice)
    • 2 pitted dates
    • 1 tsp turmeric
    • 1 tsp coconut flakes
    • 1 frozen banana, cut into thirds
    • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • A pinch of ground black pepper
    • 1/4 tbs vanilla extract
    • Honey or agave to sweeten
    • 1 tbs Balance my Stress Adaptogen Blend

How to make: 

Place all ingredients into a blender (or whatever blendy machine you use to make smoothies) and blend until smooth. Garnish with flower petals, cocoa powder or coconut flakes, if desired. Serve cold.

Pro Tip: Prep your smoothies by placing ingredients in freezer safe bags or containers. It’s okay to freeze powders and other ingredients together. Just add milk or water and you’re good to go.

I live in Northwest Arkansas - I specifically call out the region because it’s a distinct part of the state, unlike the rest. I love it here - it gives me the progressive nature of a larger city with the comfort of community. There’s still opportunity for growth and change, so I’m happy to be a resident who can play a part in its future.
