Happy Monday, friends! Today’s a good day for several reasons. My eBook is on pre-order sale for one more week (check it out here!), the weather’s getting warmer, and March is right around the corner! Like where did February even go???
If you’ve haven’t noticed from reading my other blog posts, I’m not really a fan of the whole winter/cold weather thing. Actually, allow me to clarify….I’m not really a fan of the whole winter/cold weather thing AFTER the holidays! I basically love winter and snow through New Years Eve and expect nothing less than full-on spring starting on Jan. 1st. After all, the weather should be warm when I start eating healthy again, right?
Obviously, it’s a huge disappointment every year as it’s still very much winter. And in Oklahoma, there’s no telling what the day will look like…one day it’s 80 degrees and sunny, the next day it’s 7 and snowing. I think that actually happened pretty recently!
Now I’m not complaining by any means because as a non-winter person, I’m pretty grateful that it’s not as cold here as it is in other places. Shout out to my northern friends! Which is basically everyone other than Texans, for me. But let’s just say that I’m really excited for warm weather and a new season!
Thankfully, spring is right around the corner. And I’m welcoming it with this Golden Glow Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie!
To be honest, I’m just a little bit obsessed with turmeric right now. I mean, just look at this list….
- Turmeric Greek Yogurt Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps
- Lentil Turmeric Detox Soup
- Vegan Turmeric Ginger Dressing
- Vegan Turmeric Quinoa Power Bowls
- Turmeric Sweet Potato Pasta Salad
Why Add Turmeric to Smoothies?
Turmeric is super healthy, it’s rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s also been linked to boosting brain function and lowering the risk of brain diseases.
Adding it to smoothies is a super easy way to incorporate turmeric into your diet. You could also try adding it to soup and stews, it has such a unique and warm flavor!
This Golden Glow Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie is also loaded with vitamin C! It’s great for knocking out a cold or keeping your immune system well. And since I’ve been sick THREE times already this year (ridiculous, I know!), it seems that I might need to incorporate more immunity building foods into my diet. This delicious smoothie is absolutely one of my faves!
How to Make Golden Glow Pineapple Turmeric Smoothie
- Frozen pineapple
- Coconut milk
Simple put everything in a blender and blitz until smooth, that’s it!
Top Tip: Frozen fruit gives the smoothie a thick texture and makes it really cool and refreshing. If you don’t use frozen fruit then the smoothie will be more juice like.
