Cocao Turmeric Peanut Butter Smoothie

cocoa turmeric peanut butter smoothie

I had something else planned for this weeks post, but this smoothie recipe is too good not to share.

If you’ve heard about the amazing benefits of turmeric, and have been wanting to add more into your diet, this is an easy way to sneak some in.

Recipe
  • 1 1/2 cups Almond, Coconut or Cashew Milk
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 2 Tsp of Raw Cocao powder (have you heard that raw cocao is actually amazing for gut health? Anything good for the gut is great for the skin, brain, improving your mood, balancing your hormones and increasing immunity)
  • 1/2 Tsp. Turmeric powder
  • 3 Tsp of honey or coconut sugar (or sweeten to taste)
  • 4 Tsp peanut butter*

*You can replace it with almond butter or your nut butter of choice if you prefer, or if you’re concerned about aflatoxin in peanut butter.
{I love peanut butter so I decided not to worry about it. I left it out a few times but to me the pb is what makes it.}

(if it sounds better to you, substitute coconut oil or coconut butter.  The fat will help you absorb the nutrients.)

  • Blend & Enjoy.

Fancy blenders are lovely but not required. $15 travel blender from target. Done.

Try it! It’s the bomb.

p.s: Today is day 31 of the #herbalmedicineeveryday challenge on instagram, but I’m having so much fun I’m going to see how long I can keep going. I’m so happy that other people are having fun with it too. Feel free to join us. :)
