TROPICAL TURMERIC SMOOTHIE

Ginger and lime balance the antioxidant-rich spice.

“Turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory properties and can help athletes recover faster,” says New York City-based recipe developer Julia Gartland. Another superfood addition in this recipe is pine pollen, an adaptogen that is said to keep hormones balanced, strengthen the immune system, and even boost metabolism.
