Chocolate & Turmeric Smoothie



Chocolate shake with the added anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric? Yes please!

Judging from the masses of chocolate recipes on this blog it's no surprise to anyone that I'm a total chocoholic. I consume some form of chocolate practically every day, whether it be a piece of dark chocolate, some cacao in my over-night oats or a couple of raw chocolate balls. Or, as in this case, in a super delicious smoothie.

There are quite a lot of promising scientific evidence on the anti-inflammatory effects of turmeric. As I have an autoimmune disease (which is another story for another day) I try to incorporate turmeric into my diet as often as possible. I always add extra turmeric to curries, but I also sneak it into everything from tomato sauces and stir-frys to soups and stews.

This weekend I'm going on a little mini vacation with my boyfriend and his family and it will be so nice to just switch off for a few days. What are you up to?

  2. Many organizations claim that they can "make you a certified green business" The problem with this statement is that most of these companies really do not have the experience. https://medium.com/@lucyleegirl123
