1/2 c pineapple
1 c mango
1 frozen banana
1 tbsp turmeric (It is a powerful flavor. If you haven’t had it just add about 1 tsp!)
1 tbsp coconut butter
2 c coconut water or regular water
Blend all ingredients on high for about 1 minute. If you have a plunger-you might want to use that! If it is not blending, add a little more water.
Benefits of Turmeric -Dr.Mercola
Turmeric is loaded with essential minerals, including magnesium, potassium and calcium. It's also an excellent source of fiber, vitamin B6 and zinc, and contains healthy amounts of vitamin C and magnesium.4
While it's improbable that someone would ingest an entire ounce of turmeric in one sitting (although it would be completely safe), the nutritional aspects listed above can be easily obtained in this amount than in a teaspoon, which accounts for almost nothing. A more reasonable serving is about 1 tablespoon, which communicates excellent phytonutrients.
Turmeric has been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in Chinese and Indian medicine for millennia.7 Curcumin, the primary pharmacological agent in this spice, contains proven effects in this area that are comparable to over-the-counter anti-inflammatory agents as well as some prescription medications.8 But curcumin doesn't produce the toxic effect that synthetic drugs sometimes do, such as ulcer formation, increased bleeding and possible allergic reactions.9
More reported health benefits of turmeric include relief from joint pain, which results in reduced joint swelling and greater range of motion.10
Research also suggests that turmeric may be helpful in treating inflammatory bowel diseases, lowering cholesterol levels, supporting cardiovascular health, relieving indigestion, improving liver function and even reducing your risk of Alzheimer's disease.11,12,13,14 Lowered risk of cancer and inhibited cancer cell growth – specifically cancer of the breast, colon, prostate, lung and childhood leukemia – are also on the list of possible benefits.15,16
