Golden Orange Turmeric Smoothie
- 1/2 banana
- 1/3 cup frozen mango or pineapple
- 2cm chunk raw turmeric root or 1 tsp turmeric powder
- 2-3 cm chunk raw ginger root

You could substitute the lemon or orange with grapefruit or use 2 oranges. If you cannot find raw turmeric root you can add 1 tsp of turmeric powder instead or less depending on taste.
To help increase absorption of curcumin (found in turmeric) you can add a pinch of black pepper to increase turmeric’s benefits.
