Easy To Make Anti-Inflammatory Golden Milk Smoothie Recipe

Anti-Inflammatory Golden Milk Smoothie

Since I keep a mostly anti-inflammatory diet and suffer from chronic pain, I consume a lot of turmeric. I joke I bleed yellow. I gave up coffee almost 2 years ago (I will have the occasional cup if I’m super tired) and drink hot Golden Milk every morning all winter long. It’s truly my favorite morning drink. Yet, some mornings I want a smoothie. Especially when it’s warm outside. So I want to share this delicious Golden Milk Smoothie recipe.

Yes, the recipe has carrots in it, but I promise you won’t taste them and they add a ton of nutrients (beta-carotene, fiber, vitamin K, potassium and antioxidants). Also, if you are wondering why there is a pinch of black pepper in the recipe, it’s to help boost the absorption of turmeric. Turmeric root (fresh or powdered) has natural oils that makes it hard for the body to absorb. The piperine in black pepper improves bioactivity of turmeric’s curcumin seven to eight fold. Therefore a pinch of pepper will ensure better and quicker pain relief. Besides, it adds a touch of spice.

Golden Milk Smoothie Recipe

Yields: 2 small servings or 1 large serving

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 0 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients:

1 cup almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)

1 overripe banana, frozen and sliced

1 medium carrot, peeled and sliced

1 tablespoon fresh ginger, peeled

¼ teaspoon ground turmeric

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

A pinch of black pepper

Ice if desired

Optional: coconut whipped cream topping

Directions:

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high until incorporated. Add extra ice for a thicker smoothie or additional milk to thin the smoothie out depending on desired consistency.

2. Pour into glasses and enjoy.

*For optional coconut whipped cream topping, simply place a can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight. When ready to use, open (do not shake) and scrape off the top thick layer only – and add to the mixing bowl of a stand mixer. Mix for 3-4 minutes and then enjoy as a topping on your freshly blended golden milk smoothie.

Store leftover coconut whipped cream in the fridge for up to a week.

    Sounds like a great recipe. I can’t have bananas but maybe blueberries? Printed it and look forward to trying it out.

    I think blueberries sound like delicious banana replacement. Let me know how it turns out. I may just try it myself!
