Yellow Power Smoothie


Find everything yellow in your fridge and blend it! This smoothie has banana, pineapple, orange, lemon, mango, and as a little twist, turmeric. There's plenty enough sweetness to carry the bitter benefits of the grated root. If you're still worried, then throw a Medjool date into the blender. As seen on my blog lately, I have been making all of my food "medicinal." Hot morning drinks have chaga and reishi. Salads get sprinkled with spirulina and ground hemp. Meanwhile, chocolate-avocado puddings get a dose of raw cacao and mucuna. Yellow ingredients, in particular, carry a number of benefits. They contain nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that notoriously smack you in the face with brightness. Ie: there's nothing like an orange to wake you up! Bromelain, limonoids, luein, zeaxanthin, vitamin C, etc. can be found in yellow foods like citrus, squash (and their blossoms), yellow bell peppers, corn, yellow tomatoes, bananas, plantains, and more.
