Tropical Turmeric Shake

May 10th, 2018 | no comments

A well-balanced and satisfying shake contains five main ingredients:

  1. A liquid base
  2. Healthy protein
  3. Healthy fat
  4. Veggies and fruit
  5. Functional foods

My Tropical Turmeric Shake uses unsweetened coconut milk as the liquid base, hemp hearts for protein, avocado and MCT oil for healthy fat, fresh kale, lime, mango, and pineapple for veggies and fruit, and fresh turmeric and ginger for functional foods. 

It’s loaded with tons of healing Earthfoods (six servings to be exact). Drink it for breakfast or lunch and I promise you will feel on top of the world!

Tropical Turmeric Shake
My shakes are not sweet...and that's by design! This is something I had to work on decreasing little by little over the years. If you are just getting started and would prefer your shake a little on the sweeter side, try adding an extra serving of fruit or one teaspoon of raw honey. This recipe is gluten, dairy, and grain free. 6 Earthfoods per serving: ♥♥♥♥♥♥
