This simple smoothie has the tasty flavors of banana and pineapple, but also uses turmeric and ginger as helpful ingredients to fight inflammation.
Keyword: Healthier, Smoothie
Yield: 18 oz Smoothie
Blender (I like to use my Magic Bullet)
1Large Fresh Banana
3/4 cupFrozen Pineapple Chunks
Place half of the banana in a blender (break it into smaller chunks for easier blending).
Add in the frozen pineapple chunks.
Add in the turmeric and ginger. (see notes below about also adding pepper)
Add in the rest of the banana.
Pour in the almond milk.
Put the lid on your blender and blend for about 20 seconds or until ingredients are well mixed. If your smoothie is too thick, you can add in a little bit more almond milk.
You can also add a bit of black pepper to this smoothie as this ingredient can help your body better absorb the turmeric. Just use a pinch, or a few grinds from a pepper grinder.This recipe works best with a large banana. If your bananas are rather small, you might wish to add another half of a banana.
