Which milk is good for a Golden Milk smoothie?
My go-to milk for smoothies is always plant based. I find that unsweetened almond milk works best and adds a slight nutty taste that won’t overpower your smoothie. I’ve also been loving oat milk with my smoothies, but keep in mind it adds a few extra carbs (if that’s of concern). Since this Golden Milk smoothie includes bananas, I’d suggest sticking to nut milks over oat and dairy.
What is Turmeric?
Turmeric, also known as Indian Saffron or the Golden Spice, is a a plant that has been used for over 400 years. It is commonly used in Ayurveda to help reduce inflammation and to support your immune system. It’s believed that taking turmeric with a sprinkle of black pepper enhances its absorption.
If you’ve been following me for a while you might have heard me talk about Ayurveda before. It’s helped me tremendously the past couple of years! If you want to learn more about Ayurveda, start here.

Turmeric is a great addition to smoothies for its anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. It also adds a bright color that instantly lifts your mood. Turmeric pairs well with ginger and nut butters such as almond and peanut.
