So today was yet another grey day and with me dealing with aches and pains from my yoga and exercise sessions I decided that I would like a smoothie that was uplifting as well as anti-inflammatory to soothe my tired muscles. Having recently bought some seasonal persimmon fruit, it was time to create another delicious smoothie. I added some turmeric spice to the smoothie as well as some cinnamon and fresh stem ginger as these all have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. The resulting vibrant colour was also great for lifting the mood and making you feel more refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the day.
1 small frozen banana
3 Slices of fresh stem ginger
250 ml Almond milk
150 ml Filtered water
1 tsp of Turmeric
Half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
Wash and chop all the fruit into small sections
Cut the persimmon in half and scoop out the fleshy fruit
Add all of the fruit into a food processor / blender
Add the milk and filtered water
Add the turmeric and cinnamon
Blend until the consistency of the mix is smooth
Transfer to a container or glass of choice sprinkle some more cinnamon on and drink up!
