In case you haven't heard, turmeric has been hailed the new superfood and rightfully so. New studies have suggested that turmeric is an antioxidant, helps with digestion, is anti-inflammatory, lowers cholesterol and is anti-carcinogenic.
I regularly use turmeric after training to help fast track my recovery. So if you feel like you need a bit of a boost, why not try adding turmeric to your diet if you aren't doing so already.
I have discovered that my little Indian shop around the corner sells fresh turmeric root which I have started using in my smoothies. Such an easy way to make sure I'm getting a regular dose of this superfood. I have it in a mango and banana smoothie so the orange colour of the turmeric really enhances the colour of this drink.
Mango and Turmeric Antioxidant Drink

- 1/2 tumeric root, peeled

Pop all the ingredients into your high powered blender, top up with your choice of non-dairy milk and whizz till smooth.
Voila! Super yummy and good for you too!
