So you’ve read about the health benefits of turmeric, but you do not know how to use it in your day to day diet? Here is a recipe for making a smoothie that uses it in the most refreshing way while offering a whole host of health benefits.

Turmeric has to be one of Mother Nature’s best gifts! It can be used to detoxify the body, reduce inflammation and support a healthy immune system.

Pineapples contain the digestive enzyme bromelain, a natural enzyme that supports the digestive system in assimilating and absorbing nutrients from the food we eat.

      Yes, you’re right on that one Freeman. While I love peanut butter (my guilty pleasure) these are wonderful choices for anyone with a peanut allergy or looking for something different
