Golden Milk Smoothie

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.
