A smoothie that has the beautiful colour of sunshine! Enjoy the immunity boost and anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric in this gorgeous and delicious Sunshine Plum and Turmeric Smoothie.
Is turmeric a regular ingredient in your diet? If not, you should really be looking into incorporating this amazing ingredient into your recipes. Turmeric is well known for its medicinal, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties.
While in many cases, it is applied topically onto wounds as a disinfectant and healing agent, it is commonly found in a lot of Indian and other Asian dishes. You would most commonly find it in curries and sauces, although turmeric milk beverages is also a very popular way of consuming it.
I really enjoy it in a little warm oat milk with some maple syrup and ginger. It cures flu and cough.
Here are some more information on the benefits of turmeric on WHFoods.
Turmeric is always in stock in my pantry. I consume it a couple or more times a week. If it’s not going into a sauce or rice dish, it goes into my regular smoothies. A quarter teaspoon of turmeric powder into any fruit and non-dairy milk smoothie works well for me.
Sunshine Smoothie with Plum and Turmeric
I try to make my smoothies seasonal and varied. Plums are in season at the moment and I bought a big pack of small yellow ones the other day. They have slowly been ripening on the kitchen counter, tasting nicer every day after the other.
They are so refreshing to just pop one or two in your mouth whenever a little hunger hits. But soon they were ripening too fast! So, I’ve been putting them in my smoothies too!
