I made this smoothie today, I’ve been off work and sat at home ill, feeling fluey and full of cold. I’m not a fan of taking medicines, and I had kinda lost my appetite (great news for the waistline!! haha) so for lunch I decided to make a smoothie. One that would not only fill my stomach but also try to help get rid of the cold I have. Turmeric and ginger are great natural healers, both help fight inflammation. I have to say I did feel almost instantly perkier!
1 cup rice milk (or almond/coconut milk)
tsp turmeric powder (you can also use fresh numeric if you have it)
small knob fresh ginger
tbsp hemp seeds
(1/2 scoop coconut protein powder) optional
What to do…
Simply place all the ingredients in your blender, be sure to remove the stone from the date! You do not need to peel the ginger, a lot of the nutrients of the root lie just beneath the skin. The protein powder is an optional addition, but its great to boost your protein and keep you full.
Enjoy slurping on your yellow smoothie, and hopefully boosting your immune system at the same time!
