Wait until you try this recipe! While Turmeric is the star of this show, you can’t disregard the supporting characters which are Ginger, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Pineapple, Greek Yogurt, Coconut Milk and of course Whey Protein.
Adding Turmeric and Ginger to your diet is one of the best things that you can do for your health so, I am constantly on a quest to do just that. Both Turmeric and Ginger are powerful anti-oxidants, while Cinnamon may help improve glucose and lipid levels. Both Turmeric and Ginger have powerful anti-Inflammatory properties while Pineapple has been shown to aid in digestion. And bonus, it adds a touch of sweetness to the mix.
The Coconut Milk not only adds a great flavor and a touch of frothiness but it also adds the necessary fat to increase the bio-availability of these super star ingredients. I guess I could go on and on about the health benefits of this powerful protein shake but I want to get to the recipe now so that you too can try out this incredibly healthy shake.
½ Cup Coconut Milk
½ Cup Greek Yogurt
1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Tsp Organic Saigon Cinnamon
1 Tsp Organic Vanilla
1 Tsp Organic Ginger Extract
1 Tsp Organic Turmeric
½ Cup Frozen Pineapple Chunks (Pineapple is on the Clean Fifteen list)
(I also added 6 ice cubes since I like my protein shakes cold and a bit thicker.)
Place your coconut milk into blender first and then combine all other ingredients except the ice. Blend mixture until there is a smooth consistency, add the ice cubes then blend the mixture until you see that frothy consistency.
