Chef notes

The right combination of good-for-you ingredients will help get your system back on track. Here's why this smoothie is good for you.

Turmeric: This golden root possesses powerful anti-inflammatory properties thanks to its active ingredient, curcumin. The coconut milk improves the absorption of the curcumin.
