Turmeric Blast


I really enjoy and look forward to my morning Blast, but lately, I’ve been searching for a new flavor. I usually do something with berries, but, as they say, variety is the “spice” of life! That was it, I needed spice! Turmeric gave me the variety I needed.

Though I’ve been cooking with Turmeric for years, I only recently started adding it to my Blasts.

Turmeric is a super spice and has been around for over 2,500 years. While commonly used medicinally for decades, this spice as an herbal medicine has only recently caught on in the modern world. Curcumin is the active compound in turmeric and is responsible for much of its health-promoting properties.

Here are some of the properties that make slipping a little Turmeric into your Blast such a great idea:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Known to relieve pain
  • Helps promote wound healing
  • Full of antioxidants
  • Great for detoxing

And there’s so much more! Try it today; it’ll add new flavors to your world and heal you from the inside, out!


Tropical Turmeric Blast
  • 1 frozen banana
  • ½ fresh or frozen mango
  • ½ cup fresh or frozen pineapple
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup on non-fat, plain Greek yogurt
  • dash of honey – optional
  • coconut water to max line
  1. Add all ingredients to the tall NutriBullet cup and extract until smooth.

Turmeric has a slightly bitter flavor; I recommend starting with ¼ teaspoon and work your way up to a ½ teaspoon. Also, try Blasting it with sweeter fruits. Once you start using turmeric on a regular basis, it’s fun to find new recipes that incorporate this magical spice!
