Turmeric & Supergreens Smoothie

Get ready for a super nutritious, high protein smoothie you likely won’t have tried before.

Here’s a delicious detox remedy super high in protein and antioxidants. Turmeric is the best when it comes to adding flair to a dish, but how about in a smoothie? This is a fun way to blend natural spices and supergreens together in a smoothie without a heavy curry flavor.

Turmeric aids digestion, reduces inflammation, and prevents other not so pleasant predicaments that inhibit activity within the gut. It’s paired with the subtle sweetness of supergreens and a pinch of ginger, thus making a nice concoction that is not too sweet or overpowering. And with the addition of protein, this Turmeric & Supergreens Smoothie is excellent as a post-workout drink. You’ll also get a good dose of vitamins and vegetable nutrition to make this worthy as a meal. Or, if you are an Olympia heavyweight power lifter, a satisfying curcumin snack. Go ahead, give it a whirl.

As always, ingredients should be organic where possible.
