Spiced Peach Turmeric Smoothie

Turmeric.

It’s a warm, slightly bitter spice often used in flavorful curry dishes. It’s also popular among the “no dyes” crowd as a great way to add tons of yellow color to foods, fabrics, even Easter eggs.

Everyone I know pronounces it differently, but one thing we all seem to agree on is the fact that we should be eating more of it. Studies show that turmeric may function as an anti-inflammatory, helping with swelling and alleviating symptoms of everything from joint inflammation and digestive problems to skin irritations and the common cold.¹

But, aside from eating curry for dinner every night or shaking it on your sandwich (which would just be weird), how do you get more turmeric in your daily diet? Try adding it to your smoothie!

Spiced Peach Turmeric Smoothie

Filled with coconut oil, cinnamon and a healthy dose of turmeric, this smoothie recipe has been a great way to pack more beneficial ingredients into my breakfast. The fresh fruit is so flavorful that it can accommodate up to a 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric and still maintain the fresh taste of sweetly spiced summer peaches.(For an added kick, add some freshly grated ginger!)

    What a great suggestion! I make a lot of curry dishes, so I tend to use my tumeric on a regular basis. But this looks like a really fun way to try it too.
