Creamy Golden Milk Smoothie

July 26, 2018

If you’re into golden milk, this smoothie is a must-try! It requires 7 wholesome ingredients (you likely have on hand right now), 1 blender, and 5 minutes to make. Let’s do this!

Banana, turmeric, ginger, carrots, coconut milk, and warming spices for making our Vegan Golden Milk Smoothie

The base of this smoothie is frozen banana for natural sweetness and a creamy texture. We tested other fruits and nothing quite worked. But if you’re trying (or prefer) to avoid banana, we include another option in the notes!

For anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and digestion benefits, we included plenty of fresh ginger and ground turmeric. Black pepper boosts the absorption of turmeric, so we added that as well. And don’t forget cinnamon for more natural sweetness and warmth.

Coconut milk keeps things super creamy, and as an optional touch, we threw in some fresh carrot juice to balance the banana flavor and provide an even more intense orange (golden) hue.
