If you wanted to create the perfect smoothie with anti-cancerous properties, potent anti-inflammatories, as well as antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal constituents, look no further than adding turmeric. This is also the perfect post - workout shake to aid healing and muscle growth with the high-GI fruit combined with whey protein!
- 1 cup hemp or coconut milk
- 1/2 cup frozen pineapple (contains natural anti-inflammatory bromelain)
- 1/2 fresh banana
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (add 1 teaspoon for more benefits)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 1 or 2 scoops of Protein Powder
In a blender mix all the ingredients and blend fully.
For added protein add your favourite protein powder once all ingredients are blended.
Don’t over blend the protein powder!
I made this on the weekend and loved its creamy and delicious flavour.
