Turmeric Smoothie

My poor husband was sick again but this smoothie knocked the cold right out of him!  Previously on this blog I’ve mentioned the many health benefits of turmeric along with chia and hemp seeds — this smoothie is an antioxidant powerhouse!  The recipe didn’t call for hemp hearts but I added it in because I used coconut milk instead of the hemp milk suggested.  I also didn’t use the coconut oil listed, drinking oil just didn’t sound appetizing but if you can get past that I recommend you do.  Coconut oil has powerful medicinal properties.  Here is a link to more info on the benefits of coconut oil:    http://eatlocalgrown.com/article/12671-coconut-oil-evidence-based-health-benefits.html.

Gather the following ingredients and then click on the link below for the recipe and get ready to feel well!

  • 1 cup hemp milk (I used coconut milk)
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple or mango chunks
  • 1 fresh banana
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds


We’ve been busy preparing our house to sell and packing for our big move.  Heading from quiet and warm Florida to the fast paced metro of Washington D.C.!  I lived in Northern VA for twelve years and have always longed to go back.  We’ll be closer to family and friends, plus I have a wonderful new job opportunity there so we’re excited for the move.  Just need to stay focused on packing — no fun!
