Turmeric Pineapple Smoothie with Basil

Pineapple and banana are a pretty classic tropical smoothie combination, but I’ve mixed things up a bit this week by adding turmeric.  I’ve been seeing turmeric smoothies and milks flying around Pinterest like crazy lately so wanted to give it a try.  The spice has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and is also said to aid in preventing cancers.  I decided to toss in a few fresh basil leaves at the last minute (mostly because we’ve managed to keep our basil plant alive and I’m pretty happy about that!) and I love how it turned out.  I know… basil in smoothies…black pepper in cookies.…things are going crazy around here!

    I seriously never leave comments on blogs or websites, but had to say this is one of the best smoothies I have ever tried. Threw in some black pepper, coconut oil and almonds, and I have a new favorite. Turmeric in smoothies…brilliant! 🙂
