Smoothie Recipe: The Yellow Gazebo
The Yellow Gazebo Smoothie (aka The Mango and Turmeric Smoothie) is a creamy smoothie that is sweetened with juicy mangoes and flavoured with toasted coconut. The turmeric added to the smoothie creates the vibrant yellow colour and has a multitude of health benefits. The active ingredient in turmeric, called curcumin, has amazing anti-inflammatory properties that have been shown to be comparable to potent over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs. The antioxidants found in turmeric partner with the anti-inflammatory effects, making it perfect for people with IBS, IBD or arthritis. Turmeric also inhibits cancer cell growth and boosts liver detox.
