Banana Cinnamon Detox Smoothie May 22 2016

We've all heard how Turmeric is great for detox. I've also learned that it may have other health benefits. 

According to www.whfoods.com here are some of the benefits:

  • anti-inflammatory
  • treatment for bowel disease
  • relief for rheumatoid arthritis
  • help for cystic fibrosis
  • cancer prevention
  • inhibitor of cancer growth
  • may help prevent colon cancer
  • may halt prostate cancer
  • reduce risk of childhood leukemia
  • improve liver function
  • cardiovascular protection
  • helps lower cholesterol
  • may help protect against Alzheimer's disease

The cinnamon in this smoothie is also beneficial to your health. Well-Being Secrets lists 30 benefits to your health by adding 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to your daily diet.

I've been looking for ways to add turmeric to my daily diet so I created this smoothie recipe. It tastes really good too!

Banana Cinnamon Detox Smooothie
1 cup of coconut milk (or any non-dairy milk)
1 scoop of Juice Plus+ Complete Vanilla Shake
1/2 ripe banana
1 Tbsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of turmeric
dash of pepper
Blend and enjoy.

 

I choose the Juice Plus Complete Shake because it tastes great and and I also get a protein rich drink mix that provides balanced nutrition. Much more than a protein shake, Complete Shake Mix provides the benefit of whole food nutrition through nutrient packed pumpkin and pomegranate powders, a blend of ancient grains, and more nutritious ingredients.
