Turmeric and Vanilla Bean Smoothie

Turmeric and Vanilla Bean Smoothie

Prep / Cook / Total   -   5 / 5 / 10min


• 1 cup unsweetened plain coconut milk (or almond, hemp, rice milk)
• 3-4 ice cubes
• 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
• seeds from 1 vanilla bean (*see note)
• 1 teaspoon coconut oil
• maple syrup or coconut sugar to sweeten
• dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, cardamom (optional)


Place all ingredients in a blender. Add ice. Blitz on high power for 10 — 20 seconds until thoroughly mixed and ice has been crushed. Pour into a tall cup, sprinkle with your favourite spices.

* Slice open vanilla bean working from the top of the bean and sliding the knife down to the bottom of the bean. Slide a small spoon down the centre of the bean to scoop out the vanilla seeds. You could also substitute 1/2 tsp vanilla extract if you can’t find vanilla beans. Use less or more vanilla depending on the intensity of the flavour you prefer.


Editor’s Note
“Vanilla beans can be expensive as they take 2 years to grow, but the aromatic flavour will burst your tastebuds.”
