This recipe shows you how to maximise the healing benefits of turmeric by adding it to smoothies.

I combined banana, lemon and Clementine with turmeric paste. A tasty, energising and fresh combination with anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits. If you are aware of colour therapy then these fruits are orange and yellow and will be a similar frequency band to the yellow turmeric.  This combination benefits the solar plexus chakar (yellow) and the sacral chakra (orange).

Ingredients

1 banana
1 clementine
Fresh lemon to taste
1/4 tsp turmeric paste
1/4 tsp clarified butter (ghee)
