M E T H O D

For the Tumeric + Black Pepper Elixir:

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Adjust according to taste, adding more sweetener or spices if you desire.

Strain it through a nut milk bag, fine sieve or cheesecloth if you want it super smooth (but it’s OK to drink without straining).

For the smoothie:

Blend all the ingredients together until smooth and like a slushie. If it’s too thick, add ¼ cup (60 ml) more of coconut milk. If it’s too liquidy, add ¼ cup (41 g) more of frozen fruit. 

Adjust according to taste, adding more ginger, fennel or syrup if you like. 

Pour it into a glass or two and enjoy!
