Sunshine Turmeric Smoothie (Orange-Pineapple-Fresh Turmeric)

turmeric smoothie

I found fresh turmeric the other day and was inspired to experiment. This sunshine turmeric smoothie was an overwhelming success - it tastes just like sunshine! It's a great way to serve turmeric to kids who don't like the taste of curry (there's nothing curry-tasting or spicy here).

One word of caution: turmeric stains. Serve this smoothie to kids who are at an age where spilling is very rare. Or, serve it in a cup with a very spill-proof lid. Also, when handling the turmeric wear gloves or be okay with yellow-stained fingers.

Makes 1 large adult-size smoothie.

P.S. I suspect that this would make a fantastic home-made ice-pop (popsicle).

1 – 1.5 cups coconut milk, cashew milk, or alternative

Sunshine Turmeric Smoothie Directions
