I'm off on another turmeric kick again! Ever since making my Turmeric Mango Golden Balls a couple of weeks ago – have you tried this recipe yet?! – I've been all about this super spice yet again. It's not the first time this has happened either. You may remember my obsession back when I created the Lazy Lady Latte .
Enter, the Golden Smoothie.
Golden milk is a traditional Ayurvedic recipe that dates back thousands of years. It's been used to heal and prevent a number of ailments, including preventing colds and flu, easing muscle and joint pain, clearing skin inflammations, easing digestion and supporting sleep.
The main ingredient in golden milk is turmeric , which accounts for all of its awesome benefits and vibrant yellow hue! I've adapted this delicious traditional recipe into a yummy smoothie that can be enjoyed for a satisfying breakfast or snack.
This is the perfect dessert smoothie, but you can enjoy it for breakfast, too. Here's the recipe. I adapted it from the Soothing Golden Smoothie in Joyous Detox.

This recipe is adapted from Joyous Detox.
If you add some plant-based protein powder this is a wonderful wake-up-and-shine smoothie! The protein will help balance your blood sugar and boost your metabolic rate for the day. Heck, you could even make this a post-workout smoothie because that's the ideal time to utilize carbs and protein right after a workout!
And if you're on a turmeric kick like me, then you should also make a batch of the Golden Balls while you're at it! These recipes will make you feel so good from the inside out :)
And one more photo just for fun!
