Tasty Turmeric Protein Shake
Turmeric drinks are all the rage and with good reason. With a mix of turmeric and vanilla protein powder, you're sure to enjoy this protein shake recipe. The key active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Turmeric can be slow to absorb in the body, but a dash of ground black pepper which contains piperine, known to speed the absorption of curcumin should fix that.
- 1 cup milk of choice
- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2 tsp. turmeric
- 1 tsp. agave
- Generous dash of black pepper
- In the order listed, add ingredients to your favorite BlenderBottle shaker cup, close the leak-proof lid, and shake until oh-so-smooth.
