Vanilla Turmeric Smoothie

I recently found out that my poor dog has mouth cancer. It has been heartbreaking. This has led me to begin researching a holistic treatment plan to fight the tumor and have discovered that Turmeric is an amazing healing spice for animals and people! I've decided to incorporate Turmeric daily into my husband, dog and my diets. Turmeric helps with boost immune system function, improve regulation of cell signaling, relieve inflammatory pain.

Turmeric can taste kinda "earthy" in my opinion. I tired putting it directly into my smoothie and boy can you taste it! I found that cinnamon does a good job in masking the taste palatable and created a delicious smoothie recipe! I like to add a scoop of protein powder too.

The Recipe:

A handful of fresh spinach

6oz of almond milk

1/2 tablespoon of turmeric

a pinch of cinnamon

1 banana

4 ice cubes
