- 1¼ cup raw coconut water
- 1 ripe banana
- 1/3 cup mixed raw nuts
- 1 (1-inch) piece fresh turmeric (or 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric)
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
- Blend the coconut water, banana, nuts, turmeric, and flaxseed meal in a blender until smooth.
Try your favorite mix of raw nuts, such as almonds, cashews or hazelnuts. For a more filling smoothie, replace the coconut water with coconut, soy or almond milk. If you don't have super ripe bananas or you'd like to add a little sweetener, try 1/2 teaspoon honey or maple syrup.

Shannon Whittier says:
I used golden milk turmeric for this and a tsp of honey as well. Great way to start my morning. So delicious warmed up!
Caro Hodgin says:
I drink a smoothie every morning, but never would have thought of this combo. I usually soak nuts for ~10 minutes before blending them into smoothies, so I did that here too. I'd never used turmeric in a smoothie - only in juices - but it blended up perfectly and the taste was great.
