Smoothie Love with Turmeric

Smoothie Love with Turmeric

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to make smoothies. My smoothie obsession started well over 10 years ago. My approach to it was through  trial and error. First it was just using fruits and dairy products. Then I went into a healthier approach with added super foods and healthy boosts of vitamins and minerals.Anyone who knows me knows that I love to make smoothies. My smoothie obsession started well over 10 years ago. My approach to it was through  trial and error. First it was just using fruits and dairy products. Then I went into a healthier approach with added super foods and healthy boosts of vitamins and minerals. I am not vegan but I try to lean more towards less dairy in my diet. Due to stomach sensitivities and skin sensitivities towards dairy. Today I am introducing my take on a Turmeric smoothie.
