Inflammation-Fighting Golden Turmeric Smoothie

Written by Erin Zaikis

We all know that turmeric is healthy and full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, but it's not as easy to add in to everyday recipes as other superfoods like chia seeds or flax.

Well, fear not, I have the perfect way for you to get your turmeric in a delicious, painless way:

Behold the Inflammation-Fighting Golden Turmeric Smoothie!

It's healthy, dairy free and can be enjoyed as a quick breakfast or decadent dessert. It can be adjusted for the seasons — subtract the ice and microwave in your favorite mug for a satisfying superfood drink on a cold winter day. Based on Ayurvedic properties, it purifies the blood and aids in digestion. Best of all, it takes less than five minutes to make!

Inflammation-Fighting Golden Turmeric Smoothie

  • 1 cup unsweetened, plain coconut milk (or almond, hemp or rice milk)
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • 1/2 tsp. organic turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. organic coconut oil
  • Generous dash of vanilla
  • Maple syrup or coconut sugar to taste
  • Dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, cardamom (optional)


Place all ingredients in a blender. Add ice.
