Turmeric Green Smoothie

Turmeric Green Smoothie

It’s no secret that turmeric is a powerhouse of a spice that we should all be incorporating into our diet. Not only is turmeric a natural anti-inflammatory agent, but it is a powerful antioxidant, and even helps with digestive issues and aids in preventing gas and bloating.

When most people think of incorporating turmeric into meals, it is normally associated with curries, soups, and veggies. Or now-a-days, face masks for glowing skin!
