My ‘Sunshine Milk Smoothie’ Spring Cleanse Recipe

Are you feeling achey or bloated?

Do you suffer with headaches?

Is your liver in need of some loving?

Perhaps period pain causes you angst?

Or are you struggling with low moods?

The health properties of the flavonoid curcumin found in turmeric spice, is magic for helping overcome these health challenges…. plus so much more. That is why my Sunshine Milk Smoothie just had to feature in our latest Spring Cleanse. Yes, you heard right, our Spring Cleanse is available now! You can grab your copy across here.

In the meantime, enjoy the health benefits curcumin brings by trying this turmeric powerhouse smoothie for either your first meal of the day, or a smaller serving for a nutritious snack.

 

Sunshine Milk Smoothie

Serves 1

What you will need: 

½ – 1 teaspoon turmeric paste

1 cup nut milk, or 1 tablespoon coconut cream and 1 cup water

½ cup water

2 teaspoons gelatin

1 tablespoon nut butter of choice

2 cubes ice (optional)

Turmeric Paste:

¼ cup filtered water

1/8 cup turmeric powdered spice

Pinch ground black pepper (to aid turmeric absorption)

What you’ll need to do: 

To make the paste:

 Pour half of the water into a saucepan over medium heat

Add turmeric and continually stir as the mixture heats up and thickens

Slowly keep adding the remainder of the water as you stir, so the paste remains smooth, then mix through the pepper

Once cooled, store in a glass container and the paste will last 2 weeks in the refrigerator

To make the smoothie:

Add all ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth

 

Enjoy!

    Kasey, I did your VWC 2 years ago & have been drinking the Turmeric, lemon & apple Cider vinegar as a drink every morning.
    I don’t have access to fresh turmeric so I have always used the dried spice. Is this ok or have I been waisting my time?

      Hi Bernadette, great to hear from you! If dried spice is all you have access to, that’s still effective. Just try to opt for an organic brand, like Planet Organic or locally here in Adelaide, Beech Organics are amazing! x
