Tropical Turmeric Golden Milk Smoothie

Yield: 2.5 cups (two small smoothies)
Vegan, Paleo, No Added Sugar
A tropical turmeric smoothie in a tall glass topped with bee pollen, next to a banana, coconut half filled with chopped mango, and a small bowl of bee pollen.

Who doesn’t love to sip on smoothies that immediately transport you to a tropical paradise? This tropical elixir takes things one big step further with the addition of turmeric and powerful adaptogens like ashwagandha, astragalus and pine pollen, all found in Joya’s Glow elixir blend. These superfoods can result in some serious anti-inflammatory and antioxidant power, making this the perfect post-workout (or anytime) smoothie.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium banana
  • 80g mango, frozen
  • 60g pineapple, frozen
  • 1 tablespoon Joya’s Glow elixir blend*
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice (from about 1/2 to 1 lime)
  • 1 cup plant-based milk of choice (we’re partial to some if not all light or full fat coconut milk)
  • 1/4 cup ice
  • Optional: ¾ teaspoon fresh ginger (or ¼ teaspoon dried ground ginger)
  • Optional garnish: bee pollen

*Note: If you can’t get your hands on some Glow, you can substitute it with 2 teaspoons of turmeric powder and add the optional ginger and a tiny pinch of ground black pepper to increase bioavailability of the turmeric.

  1. Add all ingredients (except bee pollen) to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and no chunks of frozen fruit remain.
  2. Pour into glass(es), optionally top with bee pollen and enjoy!

Pro Tip: Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 24 hours. Alternatively, pour leftovers into an ice cube tray and use to make other smoothies!
