Turmeric Smoothie/Shake Recipe




  • ¼ cup (1oz/30g) hemp seeds
  • 1 cup (5oz/150g) frozen mango chunks
  • ½ banana
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp shredded ginger root
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • ½ – ¾ tsp turmeric (use either ground fresh root or powder)
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom powder


1. Hemp seed milk is a quick milk to make. Unlike almond milk, which requires the nuts to be soaked, you don´t have to soak the seeds. Use 1 part hemp seeds to 3–4 parts water.

2. Put the hemp seeds and ¾ cup (6 fl oz/175 ml) water into a blender and blend until you have your hemp seed milk. Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
