Banana Turmeric Smoothies

Banana Turmeric Smoothie

Turmeric is hotter than ever right now, isn’t it? It’s anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antiseptic, anti-everything bad, and it turns your fingers a beautiful shade of Simpsons-esque yellow every time it touches your skin!

I see it seemingly everywhere – Golden Lattes are the second hottest thing behind Rainbow Lattes in NYC at this juncture – and its certainly easy enough to pop a little into your morning smoothie. The turmeric, plus a hit of cinnamon and black pepper, go well with the sweet banana.

This is insanely easy to whip together. If you are like me, you can bulk it up a little more as well with your favorite collagen peptide or protein powder. You’ll feel superhuman in no time!
