Hey guys! I'm on a detox kick this week so I'm going to show you how you can incorporate two awesome detox ingredients into your diet: turmeric and ground chia seeds. These potent superfoods help the body undergo it's natural detoxifying processes, ridding the body of unwanted chemicals and toxins.

Detox ingredients and how they work

Turmeric supports the body’s natural detoxifying processes. It helps the body eliminate internal waste, as well as chemicals that we are exposed to in the air and our surrounding environment. Turmeric is an Ayurvedic spice that has been used for centuries. (Ayurvedic medicine is a holistic healing approach that is one of the oldest in history, developed in India over 3,000 years ago.)

Among the countless health benefits of turmeric is its ability to assist the liver in detoxifying the body. The liver is one of the main detoxifying organs in the body, and turmeric assists the liver to reduce inflammation, detoxify the blood and prevent blood clotting in the veins and arteries which can block arteries.

I’ve also added ground chia seeds to this recipe because grinding chia seeds has actually been shown to increase their health benefits and potency. And because chia seeds swell when exposed to liquid, this swelling actually helps cleanse the colon in the body and absorbs toxins.

This recipe has the classic rich flavour of chocolate raspberries, and is super easy to make with only a few minutes of prep.

Here's how I did it

INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup non-dairy milk (almond milk, coconut milk, etc.)
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1 frozen banana, chopped
5 tbsp cocoa powder
1/8 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp ground chia seeds

TOPPINGS

handful of cacao nibs

Wow, I love the recipe! I would rather call it shake, because if there's some kind of milk in it, it's not a smoothie, I blieve! But I love it anyways!
