This is another smoothie I tried out of the book Plant Power by Lisette Kreischer, I wrote a small review earlier this week on that book. She calls this smoothie Smoothie on Fire.
juice of 2 oranges
1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
Peal the pear and the banana, clean the carrot. Blend all ingredients in the blender until the smoothie is even.
The taste was surprising: you can taste the orange, the pear is very subtle and the turmeric gives it a nice twist.
Turmeric, also known as kurkuma is related to ginger and is used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine against inflammation. This powerful root contains a lot of antioxidants and has a positive effect on the formation of cancerous cells, it stimulates the liver to its cleansing function and it contributes to the lowering of the cholesterol.
