Ingredients

SMOOTHIE:

  • 2-3 medium oranges, freshly-squeezed (Should be about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup frozen pineapple (See Notes!)
  • 1 lemon, freshly-squeezed
  • 1-2 Tbsps raw honey (See Notes!)
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 Tbsps chia seeds
  • ½ lime, freshly-squeezed
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt (You can also use dairy-free yogurt)

GARNISH:

  • Pineapple chunks
  • Chia seeds

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a high-powered blender (adding the frozen pineapples first, then the rest following) and blend until smooth.
  • Adjust the amount of orange juice (or add water or ice), depending on desired consistency, adding 1 tablespoon more at a time, if needed.
  • To serve—pour smoothie in your favorite glass and top with pineapple chunks and sprinkles of chia seeds, if desired.
  • Sip and enjoy!

Notes

  • STORAGE: Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, tightly sealed or in a covered mason jar, ensuring that you drink it within the same day for best taste and consistency.
  • SWEETENER: You can always use maple syrup, Vegan honey, or Medjol dates as a substitute for Agave. For vegan honey—-Bee Free Honee, click link.
  • TURMERIC: For health benefits of using turmeric, ensuring that it is paired with black pepper, helps to aid in curcumin absorption.
  • PINEAPPLES: If you're using freshly chopped pineapple, you can freeze them prior to adding them to this smoothie or just add ice for a "smoothie-like" consistency. 
  • VEGAN OPTION: To make this smoothie vegan, simply substitute honey with a vegan-friendly sweetener and Greek yogurt with a dairy-free yogurt alternative.
