Golden milk turmeric banana peanut butter smoothie that's creamy and sweet but loaded with wellness adaptogens and anti-inflammatory properties.
I realize it's winter and we're posting a golden milk turmeric smoothie recipe. But to be fair, a lot of people do the whole New Year resolution bit and they want smoothies. The reality is we're posting a smoothie recipe because this is one we have come to LOVE regardless of the month. It's a more dessert like smoothie thanks to creamy frozen bananas and peanut butter but packed with wellness adaptogen benefits
You've probably seen a lot of articles on the popularity of moon milks. In fact, you can get our recipe for a peppermint adaptogen mocha or read more about moon milks on mindbodygreen and see my quote in that. As trendy as the adaptogen ingredient bit sounds, I'm incredibly into it when it makes sent. Food totally is medicine but I'm sure as hell not going to eat it and look forward to it if it tastes medicinal.
While my personal smoothie preference is a green smoothie, I would say Chris tolerates the habit. He's more of a fruit forward or almond/peanut butter smoothie kind of guy but he will deal with the green smoothie if it's in hand. This is definitely more a Chris kind of smoothie with Carlene leaning ingredients (golden milk/turmeric).
This is not a sponsored post, but I did want to mention this Gaia golden milk blend which has turmeric, ashwagandha (personal fave), and dates to sweeten. They sent it in a PR package and we've been using it non stop as an almond milk golden latte in the evenings or in smoothies like this one. I'm a big fan of Gaia products in general because they truly believe in the importance of purity sourcing their herbs. In fact, on their supplements you can enter the tracking number and see the progress of that batch from field to capsule. Their single herb ashwagandha is always in my cabinet because studies show it helps with stress response.
