This Indian-style savoury smoothie has true superpowers!

Rich in potassium, calcium, B vitamins, Vitamin E and mono unsaturated fats, nicely balanced with carbohydrate and protein, satisfyingly light, very tasty (of course!), it will aid recovery very effectively, especially after a sweaty workout. A powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, turmeric is an excellent spice to include in your training diet.
