Carrot and Turmeric Smoothie

0

Ever thought about putting carrots in your smoothies? Not only are they full of fiber but they also contain vitamins C, B3, B6, E and K as well as minerals such as iron, magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and potassium. What about turmeric in your smoothies? Yep!

Turmeric’s been used for thousands of years as a remedy for stomach and liver ailments. Also turmeric has anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-tumour, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. Rheumatoid arthritis? Maybe throw in an extra half a teaspoon.

Ingredients:

  • ¼ teaspoon turmeric powder or ½ inch fresh turmeric root
  • ½ cup mango (fresh or frozen pieces)
  • ½ cup carrot (roughly chopped)
  • ½ cup ice
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (optional)

Method:

  1. Put all of the ingredients into your blender of choice
  2. Blast until smooth!

Additional Notes:

  • You could try adding some lemon juice as it aids the liver in flushing out toxins naturally and also acts as a diuretic.
  • Or you could add some ginger, it’s good for digestion and has numerous anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. 
  • This recipe doesn’t include any greens but you add some anyway – super alkalising!
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment and throw in something a bit different. 
  • We’ve used protein powder in this recipe however some alternative protein sources are almond/peanut butter, hemp seeds, egg, greek yoghurt, flax seeds and chia seeds (don’t forget to soak your seeds first).
